I know we’re not the only family with a ridiculous amount of crayons.
This is our before.
Seriously? FIVE random containers of crayons in a small house with two children under the age of 3.5?
So, since I’m on that crazy organizing, simplifying mission – enter this $1 bin from Target that I stuffed in one of our four suitcases when we came back from Ohio.
All the others on the bottom.
Instant gratification for Ky.
This was pretty much my DREAM come true as a child, except I would have totally had them organized by color, shade and tip/point. (Remember, I’m also the same child who would count the # of items on the JC Penney catalog page and then give myself a percentage of the things I could circle to indicate that I wanted them. Ten things? I could circle 2 items. Maybe 3. I work well with rules and parameters.)
I kept all of the broken crayons while I was organizing so that I can melt ’em and make some sort of cool new shaped crayon thing. I’ll look on pinterest. I’m sure there’s something there that can inspire me. Suggestions?
YAY color! YAY organization!
(I’m such a dork.)
Organized crayons = success in my world.
