Tips to keep your kids’ room organized and decluttered!
Learning to keep your kids’ room organized and decluttered is something all moms want to master. With kids come collections of rocks, blocks, endless Barbie shoes, books, clothes, and so much more. Clutter can quickly become a problem. While I believe we need to have lots of grace when it comes to organization and kids, I do have some helpful tips to practice to help keep your kids’ rooms organized.
Tips for Keeping Your Kids’ Room Organized
Give everything a home.
When items have a home we know where to put them. Start having your kids keep similar items together. For example, all of the cooking toys in one basket, all of the socks in one basket, etc. Clear plastic bins with lids are a great option for storing toys. We put a label on the box and the kids then know what belongs in the bin.
Use shelving and baskets.
Bins and baskets are your friends. Shelving is an excellent way to hold the baskets without creating more clutter. I love the cube shelving units. Another thing that has been helpful for us is to use space under a loft bed.
Go through things on a regular basis.
Keep a basket that can hold items to be donated. This way, as you find things you no longer need, you can place them in the basket. A good idea is to go through items seasonally.
I usually donate all of my daughter’s old clothes because she is the youngest. With my oldest, I take the clothes that he has outgrown and place in a bin in the closet. The boys are pretty close in size so lately, I have just been putting the bigger clothes in the top hanging portion of the closet.
Let go of perfection.
Some kids are going to be more organized than others. It is important to let go of perfection because we are not living in perfect magazine layouts. We live in homes that are well-lived in. When we let go of perfection, we are able to embrace our homes for what they are and let go of constantly striving for more.
