Katch that Klutter

I gotta say, I'm a pretty messy person. I tend to accumulate stuff at lightning speed and then the next thing I know, I've lost something. Usually it will show up about six months later at which point I say "THERE it is, I was looking for that last month!" It's been this way my whole life. Every once in a while I'll get fed up inspired and I'll tackle my piles and organize them. But it never lasts. I had gotten pretty used to this pattern - until I had a baby. Uh oh. Now I have a little "Tazmanian Toddler" who can make quick work of the whole place and create a complete wreck faster than you can say, well, pretty much anything. It's actually quite amazing. However, it's not much fun when your child is left with a bunch of incomplete toy sets because you've dumped half of the pieces in some unknown pile. I knew there had to be a better way to organize. Fortunately, I was right.

Enter Kids Klutter Katchers . These zippered mesh toy bags do exactly what they're supposed to - catch that clutter! They're perfect for people like me who have problems organizing the small stuff like legos, puzzle pieces, small books and other small toys. Here's a look at how Kids Klutter Katchers can help you:


Before Kids Klutter Katchers...


and after

The bags themselves are durable, breathable and hold a lot. I was pleasantly surprised at how much stuff they hold, but they don't take up a lot of space. In fact, because they contain the toys so nicely we actually have extra room to buy even more toys (but let's not go too far...just yet.) I love the mesh fabric and how easy it is to see what's in the bags. Now I can find what I'm looking for immediately and grab the appropriate bag in seconds. I also love the eco-friendliness - cuts down on using unattractive plastic bags which don't work anyway because they always break , as well as plastic containers which take up too much space. Even better, I can also picture using them for some of my own things such as makeup or office supplies. They would be perfect to take along on a trip. Now I no longer stress when my toddler makes a mess because I know I'll be able to clean it up - and he can help me too!

WANT TO WIN? One reader will receive one set of 15 Kids Klutter Katchers zippered mesh fabric toy bags. To enter, leave a comment on this post prior to Monday, August 18th at Midnight and tell me how these bags will help you. Please include your email address. Winner must provide a U.S. mailing address.

  2. All the junk my son brings home from the school treasure box, birthday parties and gumball machines that I step on in the middle of the night would go in these bags. Thank you!

  3. How wouldn't these help me? I have three kids who all need a little push when it comes to keeping their things organized. These would be great for the ;little miniatures my daughter plays with; the army men my son leaves around for me to constantly step on; game pieces and a whole lot more.

  4. These bags would be great for keeping all of the little toys that we have in. We've been using pails, cleaned out cat litter buckets, and little purses to keep everything in. Mesh bags would just be so much better.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Anything that might help get the toy situation under control would be fantastic. These look like a great option for Polly Pockets and Barbie accessories.

    BTW the onesie you asked about on my blog is Japanese (hiragana) by iikoiiko.com.

    ReplyDelete
  25. My daughter has tons of "sets" of toys, but they end up everywhere and we can't find all the blocks, or all the noah animals, etc. This should help with that.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I keep thinking that as my kids get older there will be less clutter. Wrong! These would be great to organize their playroom because you could see what was in there. Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  27. There are 5 of us in a very small space. We need a way to help contain the clutter so we all fit. These would be sooooooo helpful in doing that. Please pick me!!!

  28. My grandson needs all the help he can get in his bedroom...the fact that you can see at a glance what is in each bag will end the issue of dumping the entire toy box to find one thing ;)

    ReplyDelete
  39. How cool! I love organizing my chaos! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  40. You don't realize how many small pieces there are to things until you start cleaning out the toy room and the huge buckets where everything gets thrown. All the way at the bottom are usually those pieces of things that you've had to try and hunt down in the past and weren't able to find. These bags would be perfect for that.

  62. I could really use these right now! Our playroom doesn't really have any real storage organization besides buckets from Halloween..lol!

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Oh wow...I could probably finally walk through my son's bedroom without getting stabbed in the foot by a lego or dinosaur.

    ReplyDelete
  69. If I just say I have a lot of klutter to katch, will you be impressed? Hehe. Honestly, my daughter has just about reached that age of wanting to do little crafty things all the time, but she's not really interested in cleaning them up. Having little bags that everything can be tossed in and then in turn tossed somewhere else would be very nice!

    ReplyDelete
  70. It will help me greatly to carry groceries!

    ReplyDelete
  71. this will really help clean up after the new baby toomuchrock@comcast.net

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  73. This would really help me get more organized!

    ReplyDelete
  74. This is a great idea and would really help put things in order! Thanks!!

  75. I'm moving soon and will begin working and I've been promising myself the reward of organizational storage! My husband holds the purse strings right now and things like a wide screen tv and a convention of one of his interests in another state (I went admittedly) and the like are more important.

    So when I move I'm going to get dressers, cabinets etc and maybe if I'm lucky - this bag set!

    ReplyDelete
  76. First I was thinking for my son, I think my husband could use them more in the garage thanks Icetwofire[at]aol[dot]com

  112. These would be great for many things, but I would use them to organize art materials. No more crayons left on the floor to make marks, no more pesky colored pencils that tend to roll under the couch, buttons and beads could be organized, etc. The bags are so much stronger than plastic bags and the best part is that you can see what is in them! Thank you for the opportunity to win!
