Organizing Kids Rooms: 3 Simple Steps To Conquering The Clutter - Pt. 2
Step Two: Stow The Stuff
Now that you've cleared the clutter, step two involves organizing and storing what’s left using kid friendly storage items such as bins, bookshelves, clear containers, cubbies, hooks, etc. Every item will need a place to call "home”.
The key here is finding an easy system that's right for your child and will motivate them to be and stay organized.
If you find that even after the big purge your child still has too many toys and books or you just want to limit the amount of stuff in your child’s room in general, rotate them. Just pop a few of them into a box and stash them away.
After about a month or so, pull them down and trade them out. Rinse and repeat. They’ll get a real hoot out of re-discovering their "new" old toys.
Be sure to stay tuned for Part 3 of this series.
