Cheap and Easy: Blocking Toys from Getting Under the Couch
Anyway, being stuck indoors reminds me of how quickly two boys with lots of energy can destroy a long day of cleaning. It also reminded me of all those little spots that somehow seem to attract clutter. For us, it is under the sofa.
Are you like us? Do you find copious amounts of dog hair, dog toys, and kids' toys under the couch? If so, I imagine you too experience my bi-monthly ritual. You know the one. Where you lift up the entire couch only to find toys you had forgotten existed. Last month's Happy Meal toy, random tiny board books, often small cars or other vehicles... add into that Mesa's dog-hair, and our couch is a veritable graveyard of lost things. Or should I say was. Because a few months ago I stumbled upon this genius solution and it has been so great.
I wish I could remember where I first saw this idea so I could give appropriate credit. But whoever you are- thank you!! Seriously, thank you for helping me manage my under-the-couch chaos.
