With Christmas around the corner the time has come for me to de-clutter and get organised. Since Lucas came along space is something we don’t seem to have a lot of! We have toys of every room and every draw in the house.  I decided we needed to get rid of some and gave away to charities and some to friends. Lucas, however has his firm favourites so I needed a solution to make his toys more compact and organised. The lovely people at Maqio sent* me two sets of storage boxes and I’m so glad they did. I recieved a set of zoo themed boxes, a star themed set and a cute dinosaur waste bin. I was really impressed with the look and quality of them, they go really well in his toy room at my parents house. All his trains and track have there designated boxes, as does duplo, soft toys, jigsaws, books and many more. They are plastic and easy to clean, they sit proudly and neatly in the corner of the room, you can order them in single boxes or multiples. Maqio also has a Christmas Eve box that is incredible value at only £5.33 for a 22L box that can be used eat after year.

This brings me to another part of the house which seems to gather clutter! My partners side of the sofa seems to attract newspapers, comics and various other bits and pieces. I wanted something practical but sleek looking. PIB had just the thing, I have ordered* a stylish Tridy table. It will add a Scandinavian style feel to the living room which I love. The table looks like it comes in 3 seperate pieces but is actually one piece which has 3 different colours, green, brown and orange. The table legs compliment the top and are made out of solid rubber wood. I can’t wait to pop some candles on it when we are relaxing and then moving it to the centre of the room when we have guests and want somewhere to pop snacks. You can buy multiples of the table as they can fit into each other to make a bigger table if you need more table space and the great thing is you can separate when they aren’t all needed in one room.
