It wasn’t more than a week ago that we were enjoying our family Christmas; the kids were laughing, wrapping paper was everywhere, and I suddenly had a voice asking me, “Mom, where are the batteries?”
Uh…batteries…you mean the ones that I forgot to pick up at the store? Yeah….those batteries. I thought I was about to ruin my poor children’s Christmas, but I remembered I had some tucked away in a secret stash.
Batteries are a lifesaver in many a kid-related or outdoor emergency, but they kind of create havoc for your organizational systems. Why are they so bulky? And sort of hideous to look at? But an organized mind is a happy mind, right? So we figure out what to do with those pesky (but necessary) batteries; and here’s how we do it!
Coin purses found at Dollar Tree (or Target) make perfect little containers for batteries of all shapes and size. This is the method that I like to use, and it’s been a fantastic solution. Use letter tags to label their kind.
