Parenting Hack: toy magnet storage

Genevieve loves magnets, but I’m always struggling to find room in the refrigerator for them. We have lots of Melissa and Doug wooden magnets and this past weekend, for her birthday, she got a leapfrog alphabet which has a magnetic base and all the alphabet letters.

Solution: suction cup storage bins from the bathroom Department. These are intended to have toiletries in the shower, but they work wonderfully for magnets.

I’m sure this won’t be the case for everyone, but our freezer is on the bottom of a refrigerator, so the handle sticks out away from the unit. Therefore, the baskets don’t get in the way because the handle sticks out about the same amount as the bins do.

These bins were approximately $6 each at Walmart.
