Toys Toys Toys
We have a lot of toys… Let’s be honest, with five kids we have too many toys.
As a person who thrives in maintained order and one who struggles with unorganized chaos, I was about to loose my mind over the cluttered mess that was our playroom closet. As we acquired more objects and expanded our family, I tried to keep it clean.
As clean as possible with inadequate shelving and a lack of proper bins… but it had continually become a mess.
Finally, after months of dreaming of performing a closet makeover, I could no longer stifle my need for organization any longer and I emptied the closet. The end result, in my opinion is swoon worthy. Six shelves and twenty-seven bins later, the playroom closet has been transformed from a waste land of lost toys and misplace puzzle pieces to a fortress of cleanliness and order!
Oh how happy am I… how happy am I… I’m extremely happy.
How To Organize
I know that It may seem overwhelming at first, especially as you stand on the outside looking in, but I promise that once you get started and see tangible progress, you’ll be encouraged to continue forward with your organization.
Here are a few easy steps to follow when tackling a play room closet:
- Go through the toys and make a ‘keep’ and ‘toss’ pile. Decide if you want to rummage or donate.
- Measure your space and determine how much shelving is needed.
- Determine how many bins are needed and which ones are best suited for your specific needs.
- Separate your toys by category for easy organization.
- Label your bins and fill.
- Step back in amazement because you did it!
