4 Easy Ways to Keep Kids Toy Clutter Under Control




Is the toy clutter in your kid’s room taking over? Organizing the house can be easy for some however; the kids’ rooms can be quite difficult. Kids usually have tons of small things, odd shaped things or even big things and getting those all put away nice and neat can be a taunting task. I’ve put some ideas together to help make organizing kids toys much easier.


Shelves with bins/drawers. Find the smaller cubby hole type shelves that you can put the foldout cloth drawers in, label the drawers and put smaller items in each drawer. You can use these drawers for coloring books, electronics, games and more. Labeling will make it easy so the child isn’t pulling out everything to find/play with one item.


Pencil Bags for Puzzles. If your child loves to do puzzles and has tons of them then you can place the pieces in a zippered pencil bag and remove part of the box and put that in the “window” of the bag so you can see which puzzle it is. This will help from losing pieces and it will keep things more organized without the bulky boxes puzzles come in.

Book Shelves. Keep all books on the shelves. It helps keep books in great shape and it can also be used as storage for other things as well by using pull out bins or even staking board games.

Plastic Shelves with multiple small drawers. Use these drawers for the smaller things such as pencils, crayons, markers, legos, blocks, paper and more. Label the drawers so the child knows where their items are.

You could also purchase a plastic drawer shelve with 5 decent sized drawers and label them Monday-Friday and put their clothing in there for the week so that is already decided. This will help cut down on time for what to wear and will keep everything together.
