When I find a product I love, I tend to buy more than one for myself and to recommend it to all my friends. What meets my needs so well is not always perfect for a friend, of course, but every so often a product proves so useful and reasonably priced that a ripple effect occurs and I find out about friends of friends of friends running out to get their hands on one!
I found these ClosetMaid Cubeical Organizers at Target this summer just after we moved into a new home. New spaces called for new systems of organizing books and toys and these cube shelves became my new obsession!
First up was our picture book library. This shelf is a dark, espresso color. It sits in our great room amidst pieces of non-Target furniture and blends in seamlessly. Aside from being stylish (enough for me!) it makes it easy to categorize and store hundreds of books while providing easy access to the shelves and disaster free book removal and, this is key, book re-shelving that even little kids can manage independently. Gone are the days of the book avalanches we used to deal with!
I have since learned that when I used to buy 5 of the same shirt at Old Navy, varying only in color, that I was committing some sort of wardrobe faux pas according to the experts and I’m sure similar rules apply to furniture. Apparently I can’t help myself. I bought a shelf for each of my boys’ bedrooms, in colors to match their dressers (one espresso, one alder) and I chose white for our basement playroom:
These were just too useful, durable and reasonably priced not to buy more! I love that the kids and their friends can see the toys we have, access them without assistance and put them away themselves.
You can find these awesome shelves in a bevy of colors at Target – the ClosetMaid Cubeicals Cube.
