Washing baskets, your days are numbered!

My kids love to play in the washing baskets.

Unfortunately, washing baskets were not made for this kind of play. They don't last very long in our house!

Yes, I do have a lot of baskets...
So, as they break, I am replacing them with IKEA bags.
The bags fit about the same amount as a washing basket (1 load of washing). They pack up small. They are easy to carry. They are durable (and not so tempting for the kids to play with).

What will my kids play with?

Boxes ;)

Great idea! But you still have a few baskets to get through yet!

Yeah, I do! But we've lost 2 in the past month ;)

I am considering just donating the rest to Vinnies. I'll see how we are going with the IKEA bags after a couple of weeks :)
