Learn how to organize toys in a bedroom.
Need to organize toys in a bedroom? If you do not have room for a playroom, do not worry. There are many ways that you can store toys in your child’s bedroom! We have never had a playroom. In fact, our previous house was just 1100 square feet so I quickly learned the importance of toy organization systems.
Even now, in a bigger home, we do not have a playroom and have been working on setting up systems. If you have wondered how to possibly organize all of the toys, this post is for you!

CLEAR THE CLUTTER CHALLENGE WEEK-BY-WEEK
So far we have decluttered and organized three spaces in our homes! See the different spaces below!
Today, we are moving on to learning how to organize kids’ spaces.
How to Organize Toys in Bedroom
The first step is to declutter the toys.
You do not want to organize items that are not needed. As you declutter toys think of these steps:
- Is the toy broken?
- Does your child play with the toy?
- Is the toy age-appropriate?
We do not need to be organizing broken toys or toys that are no longer played with. Take a minute to go through the toys and get rid of what is no longer needed
Sort toys by type.
When you know which toys you are keeping, sort them by type. For example, the cars go in one pile, the trains in another, the dolls in another, etc.
I am a big fan of using bins for toys. We have a bin for barbies, a bin for doll clothes, the list goes on and on. You do not have to spend a lot of money on this. While the beautiful bins are lovely, a simple plastic bin works just as well!
Use wall space.
Consider using wall space to help store items. Hooks to hold purses or costumes works well! A hanging wall shelf organizer can be great in a closet!
Use cube organizers.
The cube organizer shelves are a great system to use! They allow for space for books, bins for toys, and son . These also can work great in a closet to hold clothes!
Change it as needed.
Once you set up a system, be willing to adjust it as needed. When we first moved in, I had the Barbies set up one way but then changed it to another way. If a system is not working well, evaluate where the problem is and adjust.
Start a routine of the day clean up.
Having toys in the bedroom does create a mess but the mess usually means play happened. Embrace the mess. Instead of stressing over it all day long, start the routine of the end of the day clean up. This could be before dinner or after dinner. Doing this, will give you peace of mind knowing that clean up will happen and let the kids enjoy their play.
Create a cozy space.
I love creating cozy spaces in my kids’ rooms. They often will read in their rooms so I love being able to create an area for that to happen. Using a cozy blanket and chair like a Big Joe helps create a space they will cuddle up in.
We were recently sent personalized blankets from Caiden Designs for each of the kids and they LOVE them. They are so soft and the kids love having their names on the blankets.
Use a cozy blanket, chair, and basket for some books to be enjoyed!
