6 Ways to Organize your Children’s Toys
Posted on February 10 2017
One of the many dilemmas of parents is the fact that toys seem to accumulate very quickly as time goes by. The ones your children have outgrown turn into clutter, while the ones they currently play with serve as constant eye-sores around the house. The main solution when it comes to putting an end to this problem is by finding clever ways to how to store them and keep things under control by continuous reviewing and decluttering.
Here are some suggestions on how you can do this:
1.- On special occasions, why not donate some of your children’s toys to charity? Gather the kids and let them make the decision when it comes to which toys they would want to part with.
2.- Keep a box for toys that need to be fixed and attend to these once a month.
3.- Get the kids into the habit of cleaning up and putting away their toys after play. Use storage bins, baskets, or containers where these can be stashed away. These are definitely hassle-free and are absolute essentials in every child’s playroom.
4.- Dress-up storage is a must-have if your kids love dress-ups. Allocate a space where small accessories can be placed.
5.- Make use of under-the-bed storage. These are even better if they are wheeled, rectangular or square-shaped shallow storage bins that allow you to place toys and clutter under your child’s bed with ease. It provides easy access to his or her toys and also becomes a good training tool to teach your child about the value of being organized.
6.- Top shelf or bookcase storage also provides extra room for your child’s toys. Place the ones which hardly ever get used or those that are too bulky and tend to eat up valuable floor space.
For those who are on a tight budget, why not create your own storage boxes and dress them up? It’s a good way to get creative and also a good opportunity to recycle.
Nobody likes a cluttered home, and your kids are too young to realize that. Inculcating good organizational techniques and forming a habit onto your kids will go a long way in keeping a tidy and peaceful home. How do you keep your home organized? Let us know in the comments section below!
