My daughter has more books than a small library. The good news is that she loves to read. I (of course) love this. The flip side is that I am faced with a plethora of books strewn about the house. To encourage her to put her books away when she is done reading, I made a few magazine holders out of cereal boxes. I made each one a different size to demonstrate the size of the books that go into each box. I lined them up on a shelf and taught her the "new system" for organizing her books. She loves it because she enjoys looking at the pictures on the sides. I love it because it has encouraged her to put her books away. A win-win. The best part is that they are put away nicely and not heaped up in a "leaning tower of Pisa" pile. To learn how to make a magazine holder out of a cereal box, click here.
