Lego Storage Solution

Mom Hack

If your household has a love/hate relationship with Legos, consider investing in a storage cart with drawers.

Use one for the playroom to keep Legos neatly organized.

For hassle-free playtime, let the kids build on a sheet or blanket; this makes clean-up a breeze.

Plus, designate a spot for displaying their Lego masterpieces—like shelving in their closets.

Featured Response😄 

“When I am feeling overwhelmed, I find time (either when my hubby gets home or after the baby is down for the night) to sit in a warm bath with either a book or catch up on my DVR for even just 30 mins! Shutting the door and having some “Me Time” helps recharge my battery!”

- Community Mom

That sounds heavenly! Nothing beats a warm bath and a little “Me Time” to wash away the stress. - Danielle 😊
