There will be no before picture today. I, uh...forgot. Yea, that's it, I forgot!

We were snowed in yesterday so I couldn't leave to get containers. I used what I had on hand and didn't bother to label anything because I plan on replacing the shoe boxes with Dollar store boxes really soon.
You know the routine- Trash, Donate, Keep! Oh boy did I donate and trash today. My older kids don't have many toys, and Kiwi would honestly rather play with my measuring spoons or the dogs so I totally purged in this room!
|My own personal Vanna- isn't she awesome?|
|Bottom shelf- favorite books and legos.|

|Previously filled to overflowing now practically empty!|
