Poll: Do You Save All of Your Child’s Artwork?

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

You want to support your little budding artists, but the amount of artwork is taking over every inch of your storage space. 

A recent New York Times article noted a growing dilemma among parents–where (or how) to store all the glittery scribbles their children produce at school, at home, and just about everywhere.  Some parents ruthlessly edit or surreptitiously discard less-inspired artwork, intent on keeping the home uncluttered while teaching their kids not to be sentimental pack rats. 

Other parents, however, can’t bear to part with their children’s drawings and paintings (no matter how banal), preferring to find creative storage or display solutions.  Still others have discovered the savvy (but time-consuming) solution of scanning all their children’s artwork onto a computer and compiling a digital scrapbook. 

At Parents, we offer creative solutions for transforming your kid’s art into playing cards and jewelry to save on storage space while also showing your kids you value their artistic efforts.

Stroller Storage for Tight Spaces

Tuesday, March 11th, 2008

New_2If you’re an urban dweller with limited room for a bulky stroller—or if you’re just sick of banging into it every time you’re in the foyer, this may be the product for you. Metro Tots StrollAway is a new over-the-door hook that was designed by an NYC mom who just couldn’t find a good place to keep her stroller. The hook fits most models and has a spacer to let it adjust to the width of your closet door. Now you just have to clear out some closet space to make room for the hanging stroller!

Thanks Urban Baby!
