Brilliant Ways to Organize Your Kids’ Stuff

Brilliant Ways to Organize Kids Stuff

I don’t know about you, but this time of year leaves me feeling a bit frazzled. After taking down Christmas decorations and trying to find places for all our new {awesome} gifts, I feel like everything is in disarray. The first step is getting all the unnecessary stuff out of my house.  I’ve outlined how we clear out the clutter here. I can normally get my stuff together and organized and it lasts for a while, leaving me feeling quite accomplished and enjoying slightly lower blood pressure in no time. The kids’ stuff is a different story. It seems as though it breeds overnight and, just when I think I have it all organized, I find a hidden trove of toys/clothes/”treasures” that we can’t part with. In an effort to make myself feel more organized, I’ve scoured the web to find brilliant ways to organize your kids’ stuff. Maybe, just maybe, I will muster up enough grit to roll up my sleeves and implement some of these suggestions in my own house. :)

  1. has anyone purchased the shoe wheel? Wondering if it’s as easy to use as it looks. Our typical shoe rack the shoes always fall and looks a mess.

  2. Hi,
    I love some of your storage ideas. My biggest headache when it comes to storage is my son’s trucks. I’m not talking small, Matchbox cars here. He easily has a dozen big garbage trucks (his obsession). Shelves are hard because usually only will fit per shelf. Is there a creative way to store trucks vertically, or am I destined to have a parking lot in part of his room or the living room?
    Thanks for reading!

    1. Hang them from the front wheel axles on the wall. If he loves them to play with, he’ll love them decorating his room too. We live in a very small space so anything off the floor or other horizontal spaces in a real win!! Good luck.

    2. I use a cheap shoe rack with horizontal rails, works well for the bigger trucks not so much for the smaller trucks though as they fall through
