How-To: Instant Toy Box

What to do when your new crawler seems to aquire enough toys to arm a small nation overnight? 

1) Take a diaper box (if you don't have one available, wait two days until you have to buy more diapers then continue to Step 2).

2) Grab some handy, dandy Contact paper.  Pick either a solid colored roll or one with a pattern that matches (or at least doesn't clash) with the living room.  You can find Contact paper almost anywhere.  Make sure you pick out a darker color to cover up the print on the diaper box.

3)  Add Contact paper to box.  Add name signage if needed (or if Daddy decides to be ultra creative).

And now you have a toy box to corral all those unruly toys!


  1. love your blog Kimberlee! wish I had more energy for crafting (or anything at this point)! :)

  2. Just give her a few months and she'll need two or three of these... baby toys have a way of multiplying! I have some "Cars" contact paper that would be perfect for this project. Thanks for sharing, and for stopping by my blog!

Seeing so many different ways to use tabs on the top, sides, and bottoms of their planner has given me ideas. And when you find one way doesn't work great, switch the location until you do find the perfect location for the way you use them. 

After this layout, I moved stuff around....

Now the tabs for project lists, H's B-day, next Christmas are on the bottom of the pages. Nothing blocks the,  since the above layout I also switched the monthly layouts to behind the DISFish weekly pages I use.  The teal/blue month tabs are on the first page of the DISFish which includes that month's information.  The monthly tabs on the side are for the two-page monthly sprees by Daytimer that came with this binder. Helps to see the month laid out in that way when on the phone making appo…

Planner Sections

Order in my Palmer (right now) goes like this...Dashboard, wrapped in two verses printed on card stock, Food tracker, 2016 DIYFish yearly calendar for melds tracking,  Weekly (DIYFish Weekly Project) Monthly two-page layouts, Financial Freedom pages, Fitness pages, Project pages (special event planning pages), Church Team pages. 

I have a steno pad in the back pocket for the ongoing, never ending to-do list and what purchases are needed for those tasks. 
A second stern pad is tucked into the front pocket for me brain dump as I think of things during the day.
