Are you ready for the Christmas season?
Worried you won’t have room for all of your child’s new toys?
It can be difficult finding room for new toys when your home is already full of them. While it may be time to donate or get rid of some of your child’s older toys, some toys may be difficult to get rid of.
If you’re trying to prepare for the Christmas season you’re going to want to improve the way you use your space. Luckily, these five tips will help you master the art of toy storage once and for all.
1. LOVE THOSE LABELS TO IMPROVE TOY STORAGE
You may already have plenty of toy containers and boxes around your home. You may even sort different types of toys into different boxes. But are they labeled?
Labeling your storage boxes can really seal the deal and make things much easier for you and your children when it’s cleanup time. By clearly marking a box as “Legos” or as “Barbies” the process of cleanup will be much easier and simpler.
You may want to use printed labels, creative labels written with crayon, or simply a picture which signifies the category. Whatever you choose, a well-used labeling system can really help to facilitate the cleanup process and keep things more organized.
2. DON’T LEAVE ROOM FOR MONSTERS UNDER THE BED
If you find that you’re running out of room in the closet or other areas you may want to consider storing a few boxes under the bed.
While under the bed storage can often be a haphazard mess, you may consider getting a bit more organized with it.
Use DIY storage bins with wheels or add in a custom, short set of drawers to maximize your use of this space and keep it organized.
