It happens all the time. You fear you have hit capacity for the amount of books you have in your home. No worries, I am here to help!
Donate any books your child hasn’t read in the last 6 months. I try to trim down the books without my kids in the room, otherwise every book is their favorite book. No matter if I remind them the joy that donating books brings them or that maybe a baby would love to have that peek a boo book they completely forgot about, the books are always “theirs.” You can often donate them to a local library or school. My area hosts a 3 day long book fair where profits go 100% to local reading programs for children so we always donate to them.
Picking out storage is the most time consuming thing for me. I need something that can fit in a small space. I need something that can hold a good amount of books in a compact space. Keeping children’s books in their line of sight helps them choose reading as as activity while playing. That is something I always keep in mind while looking for storage.
This blue one from The Home Depot is a great choice because it holds many books and has a sleek style. The top rows keep covers facing out which is eye-catching to children.
This is a great choice from Amazon, as it also offers a seating option on top to make the perfect little reading nook. The bottom slots are great for sliding those canvas bins full of books in. My niece likes to use those to organize her books. She keeps a bin for non-fiction and fiction.
We really loved this option also from Amazon. The clear wall shelving provides a unique look that frees up floor space! I love thinking of changing out the front displayed book to coordinate the seasons or holidays. How do you organize your books?
