1. Extremely Versatile TROFAST IKEA Storage Combination

This storage unit is extremely versatile. There are so many permutations you can experiment with by changing either the size of the storage boxes or by changing the colours of the box. The smartest way to go about selecting the box size is to plan and group the items that you want to store within this storage unit and categorise them by type, excluding all the bigger bulky items where you can save one section for. Alternatively, you can have smaller drawers on top and bigger ones below to store things like soft toys and trains. Toys that your child play with daily should be easily to take out and returned back easily. Another great factor about this storage unit is that storage boxes can be easily taken out and stored back which helps when you want to transport the entire box to another room for your child to play with like when guest come over. It saves you time by not having to take out toys item by items and putting back the way it was bent over a short shelf.

You can place these storage pockets next to your children's bed. Three different sized pockets make it easy for you to store things of different sizes. Some items you can store are handkerchief, wet ones, fan remote control and even their vitamins (if they are not fond of them)! As some children tend to wake up in the middle night, be mindful not to place any objects that they can sallow or draw with for safety for your child and your home. It fits snugly on the side of the bed and is child's play to fit on. It helps organises items and optimise space that are frequently used as it keeps it upright instead of being stacked or laid out.
