DIY ideas on how to organize barbies and accessories. Declutter and organize the toys so your children can enjoy and play with their toys.
This week we are focusing on the kid bedrooms and toys. We are in week four of the Clear the Clutter Challenge. In week one, we talked about how to declutter the kitchen, in week two we focused on the living room, and last week we focused on the master bedroom and bathrooms.
I decided to focus on how to organize Barbies and accessories. Any mom of girls knows how chaotic the Barbies can become. We recently started using a good system for Barbies that keeps things organized and is extremely simple!

How to Organize Barbies and Accessories

Step 1: Sort through everything and determine what goes and what stays.
Anything that is broken or missing pieces needs to go.
Step 2: Decide on a system for the organization.
Originally, we were dumping all of Barbie’s items into a container. While it worked at containing everything, it was frustrating having all of the things together.
We decided to change things up and use a 3 cube shelf organizer along with some other containers.
Step 3: Group similar items together.
As we worked through the Barbies and accessories, we saw there were some basic groupings of items. We sorted things into different piles and then put them in bins.
Below, you can see where we stored each group in the cube organizer.
All of the extra furniture is in a basket on top.
The dolls went into one of the cube organizers. At first, there were too many, but then we sorted out some dolls who were pretty old.
We used another cube organizer to hold all of the Barbie clothes.
We are using little plastic organizers to hold the shoes. This helps keeps them all together and they are played with more when stored like this.
All of the Barbie pets, purses, and food went into this three-drawer organizer. It works well because we can pull out each drawer as needed.
