I have really got into Trugs recently - you know the large plastic bucket things that squash up so you can hold them by the handles. I think they were designed for gardening originally. I have one cars, one for lego etc etc. About a fiver from Tescos, Sainsburys etc.
As I have said on another thread, I think they might be considered poncy - Waitrose - Tarquin - on MN - but I am at peace with it.
Thanks - I will look out for Trugs - what i need is for dd to stop dragging everything through the house - and to be able to have storge units that she can reach. I bought a good one for all her art stuff (for which she has loads) which is currently under the dining table - think I might get another for her bedroom. Good idea with see through drawers
