clean up your legos.

have you ever stepped on a lego piece?

it only took one time and I was looking for the perfect storage solution.

in pain fury I looked around our house. and found a stack of these.

pepsi crates are like mason jars here. for anything and everything.

some even have compartments for organizing. love.

harry potter. star wars. 
and pieces we can't figure out where they belong.

lila even has one for animals.

they fit in with the rest of our home.

and can easily be transported to the table. or porch for play.

and when it's time to clean up...
it either goes in the crate. or in the trash.
and instantly the problem of little legos left on the floor, solved.

note: I cut little squares of cardboard to put inside the crates so no pieces fell threw the cracks.

antiques flea markets have all sorts,
or pottery barn carried them for a bit (much pricier).
I bet ETSY would have them too!
