Organizing Kids Rooms

 

Here are some easy to implement organizing ideas for organizing a childs room.

 

  Kids and clutter often go hand-in-hand, and it can be quite challenging to organize the kids' toys, books, and stuffed animals. These products are my top picks to help you inexpensively and quickly organize your child's bedroom, playroom, or family room.

One of the biggest battles in any home is getting the kids to clean their rooms. If you build in success, by providing them the tools, itíll make it easier on everyone.

When selecting the storage for your childís room, be sure that itís something that the child can use. There are tons of options, from plastic storage bins, the fold up cardboard under-bed boxes and drawers and build-it-yourself furniture, and donít forget garage sales. Take your child with you when getting new storage, to make sure it will be user friendly.

Younger children have trouble opening heavy dresser drawers, so consider using cardboard box storage, or open stacking baskets. Use the dressers for out of season clothes until they are older.

Put stickers on the drawers to show what goes in each one, so they can start learning to put away their own clothes. You can find a wide variety of stickers in scrap booking supplies.

Clear plastic bins are great for toys. The lids are usually easy to work and the children can see whatís in the box. Itís also fun to label the storage with bright pictures of what goes in each box. Stuffed animals can multiply like rabbits, but storing them on a Velcro covered pole is fun and helps decorate the room. A large decorative laundry basket can make good storage for the stuffed animals as well.

By sorting the toys into groups, and storing some in either the basement or garage, you can limit the amount of toys in their rooms at one time. Rotate which toys they have once a month or so, helping limit boredom with the toys. This is also a good time to sort out the things the kids no longer play with or have gotten too old for, and either pass things on or have a garage sale.
