Home Organizing: How I Finally De-Cluttered Every Room in the House

Toy Storage

Toys: another potential nightmare! Our old solution was to stack plastic bins in the closet, but they would take everything out to get to the bin on the bottom and that's no solution, that's a huge mess!

LESSON #3: Use vertical space.

Kids have to have storage they can use. A tall column of drawers is perfect; each bin is independent of all others, and all are at kid level.


Labeling looks nice, and it also saves you time. You don't have to open every bin or box to find what you're looking for, you know exactly where everything is. Use pictures to label things for kids, so even pre-readers know how to clean up and put away.
