What is the best way to organize big and bulky items? My son loves GeoTrax, but store them discretely is very tough!

For this type of toy, I’m a big fan of clear storage bins like these from Rubbermaid.

Here’s why… Kids love to dig around and find just the right piece for their creation. It’s important for the bin not to be too deep otherwise the individual pieces are difficult to find.  I suggest finding the right height bin and getting more than one if you need it. Another factor to consider is where the bins will be stored.  I like the under-the-bed option because they are discretely tucked away and lightweight enough for a child to scoot in and out [read put away easily!]

One more thing to consider is the lid style… I prefer the non-latching lids for toy storage so it’s easy for a child to put on and take off.
