Toys. Everywhere. When you have kids it’s the truth!
There are a few things that we do to cut down on toy clutter throughout our home, and I hope that these tips are helpful to you! This is part of a collab video with Jady A and OrganizedClutterbug!
2) LIMIT THE NUMBER OF TOYS your child has access to. Sometimes, we live under the mentality that more is more, and our kids seem to tire of toys easily. I find that when they have less options (that are rotated out) they do worlds better! Store them in sets that are easily put away. Plus, with less, you can clean up faster. We love the chalkboard labels from Michaels and chalk pens.
3) STORE YOUR PUZZLES (or items with loose pieces) IN PENCIL POUCHES. You will love this. They are virtually indestructible and save so much space.
4) HAVE AN ALWAYS-OUT BASKET TO PLACE NOT-IN-USE TOYS. This way you are constantly purging and only the toys that your child likes will stay out.
5) GET CREATIVE. I made a DIY lazy susan for Carson’s art supplies using a cheese platter (and I turned the table into a chalk table!). You can see more on that here.
6) MAKE USE OF HIDDEN STORAGE AROUND YOUR HOME. We use everything from large tote baskets, small burlap baskets (with cute labels) and storage ottomans that can serve a dual purpose to store toys.
7) STORE TOYS IN BOOKSHELVES. If you can stand to part with a few books, move up the bottom rung of your bookshelf and put in canvas bins.
