Toys Toys Toys - Tips for how to organize it all

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:

  1. Go through the toys and make a ‘keep’ and ‘toss’ pile. Decide if you want to rummage or donate.
  2. Measure your space and determine how much shelving is needed.
  3. Determine how many bins are needed and which ones are best suited for your specific needs.
  4. Separate your toys by category for easy organization.
  5. Label your bins and fill.
  6. Step back in amazement because you did it!

  1. Hi,

    As a mom of a boy and a girl there are toys everywhere! Organizing their toys is always a pain in the you-know-where 😉
    Hopefully I have a playroom ready in a couple of months so the Giant Toy Pile is no longer a decoration item in my living room.

    Thank you for sharing how you did it.

  4. Now, that is definitely a closet to swoon over. I had my grandson staying with me this past week and I told him that for every long shelf he cleared, cleaned and organized, I would pay him $5, for short shelves $3 shelves. He is an amazing organizer and the first thing he did was ask for all different size boxes for containers. He wanted to stack them, but i cut off the tops so I could have one layer that I could look into and get what I wanted. He cleaned 7 shelves and we went to Target for Legos at the end of the week for him to spend his hard-earned money.

  5. That looks wonderful. I am trying to get all of the toy madness under control before the holidays. Thanks for the inspiration and sharing this with the Less Laundry, More Linking party.

  6. That closet of toys looks amazing! I can’t imagine all those toys being in a huge bin all mixed up. They probably get played with a lot more. Do you have any tips on getting the kids to keep them organized? Thanks so much for sharing at Mom’s Library!

  7. I’m so jealous you have such a great space to store toys – someday I’d love to build a house with a large walk in close to store all our toys & homeschool stuff in =)

    Thanks for linking up at TGIF! Have a great weekend,

  10. Fortunately for homeowners, modern furnaces have become far more efficient with
    the hlp of new technology.You can usually find this information on their
    website, or by calling them. Using the primary controller, electrical power will then
    flow to the electric motor which will begin
    the rotation of the motor shaft.
