Library Madness and Tools to Beat It!

As you can see we have a lot of library books. When I talk to others about using the free library they always say that they can't keep all the books organized and separate. Well, this is my basic system. I bought a cheap plastic bin/crate from Target (the blue one) and that is where all materials from the library go. Then as we finish them and are ready to send them back to library, they go into the tan bin. Then, if I am going by the library I don't have to go chasing books around.

So for about $6 (the cost of 2 of these bins and I know you could get them cheaper) I have unending peace in a situation that drives many batty!

Great idea! Thanks for sharing!! I definitely don't want to be left with library fines because we forgot a book.

Have a great WFMW!

I just posted on my blog (a few days ago) about how many books we check out. We check out about 30-60 a week (we have 5 that always check out the limit). This would be great, but it seems we are always finding them in a child's room.

I started keeping the printouts from the library and we check them when we get ready to go back and make sure we have located them all. But the bins will be good for keeping them organized. Great idea!
