9 Nursery Storage Solutions

Now that Fern is getting a little older, she seems to be accumulating more toys and even though she’s not mobile enough to start leaving them all over the place she does like to throw them about and I’m quickly realizing that I’m going to need to come up with a better system for storing her things.

The only problem is that I don’t want to waste money on items that are specifically geared toward kids, because I want to have things that can transition and grow with our family.

I did a bit of hunting and found some lovely storage solutions that I wouldn’t mind showcasing in my home beyond the baby years.

Check out my toy storage solutions after the jump!

  • Vintage Inspired Wire Storage Baskets 1 of 9

    I love the rugged quality of these bins. I think I'd choose the ETC. bin, because it would be more versatile to use for the post-kid days.

    The price of this bag is nice and imagine how great it would be to just to clean up baby toys in one fell swoop (pun totally intended).

  • Industrial Wire 9-Bin Storage 5 of 9

  • Rolling Storage Crates 7 of 9

    I'm a sucker for an old crate and one with castors is even better in my book.
