Organizing Planet Barbie Land

“This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Home Depot & Rubbermaid, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #AllAccessOrganizers http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO.”

So here’s the thing.. (Don’t you love it when posts start out with that.. I know I do.. haha) I’ve been stealing things from the playroom and putting them elsewhere.. Like the curtains (now in the dining room) The map (Now in the entry way) the rugs (Downstairs) Who would have thought? So we’ve been on the look out for a huge fluffy rug the girls like and some new curtains, but we also spent TWO DAYS and by we I mean me, cleaning out and organizing all their CRAP. Because that’s what it is. How two girls can accumulate 5 bags worth of trash in one tiny room I’ll never know, and the child who wont admit to having a liking for cutting up tiny tiny bits of paper and putting them in bowls to make soup– well.. I’ll find out who you are, woman.

Anyway, so they’re getting older– we took the kitchen out and they mostly play school, office, and barbies. Oh and makeup. But barbies is a HUGE deal for them. At my mother in laws house she has a room dedicated to it for them– barbie land. Well we tried to make our own barbie land here, with a GIANT house and approx 13,001 barbies. It was out of control. We didn’t have a basket or bin big enough for the barbies and they’d end up on the floor every day.

Christmas barbie was always judging..quietly.

Then when we found these handy things from the Home Depot I knew it would be perfect because the girls have little to no effort when it comes to putting them away!

My kids are lazy y’all. If it involves putting them neatly anywhere or having to be careful, it wont happen. This way– with the All Access Organizers from Rubbermaid they shove them in since they still open from the front when stacked unlike a lot of totes that you open from the top (but don’t worry they do that too! Magical.) I don’t step on a barbie shoe and we’re all happy. Even Christmas Barbie.

I bought 4 bins total, these two smaller ones, which I think are still plenty big enough and two bigger ones for their bedroom, I thought that it would be perfect for uniform clothes in the fall– since they stack so neatly they’ll both be able to get to their OWN pants/skirts/shorts/skorts with ease and we should have a lot less fighting and whining at 7:00 am. Can I get a hallelujah? But that in itself will be a job going through the never ending amount of uniforms.. Thank the lord we still have a month left!

If you’re out and about at Home Depot I highly suggest checking these Rubbermaid products out. They’re super affordable and they’ve made our lives MUCH easier. And, I think they might be sparking a complete room overhaul… you’ll just have to wait and see ;) I think the organizing is getting to my head.. watch out people. This is only the beginning ;)

    Love the idea of a Barbie playland!
    …with my kids’ collection of about 10,345 barbies, I also like the idea of the bins you can shove them in and make them disappear! ;)

    Love them. And completely understand how it’s impossible for there to be just ONE Barbie out – for some reason it always has to be an all-night kegger with those plastic babes.
