A week or so ago we were offered a Big Book Little Book Cardboard Box being a clubber in the 1990’s I loved the pun. I also had a look at the website and thought that it was one of the best ideas I have seen in ages. The reason being that I spend a large chunk of my evening tidying up books that have been randomly thrown from their wicker basket to the floor in a toddler frenzied rampage of picture led decision making. But, no longer, the Big Book Little Book Cardboard Box has actually solved this problem.
You see, I have to admit that our books look nothing like the ones in the picture above, instead they look like this picture. But hey, they are not on the floor in a massive jumble, so I don’t care. The toddlers can actually find what they want with ease and our book area definitely looks a lot less untidy.
The only issue is with the fact that it does still essentially look like a cardboard box, not the best look for a living room. My OCD- ness about mess/ living room style is forcing me to go out and buy some new fabric to cover it, so it blends in a little more. But, frankly that’s not an issue when you are paying £8 for something that will improve your overall life and that of the kids. Who would have thought such a simple, obvious idea as a cardboard box could change your quality of life. But it does. They come fully constructed and in my experience very promptly. You can buy one for yourself here.
