TIP #1: DIVIDE UP TOYS
Keeping all the toys in one place can get messy, especially after the kids have had their fun for the day. Dividing up the toys will help you decide which toys to keep in shelves, and which one to keep in the closet. Keep the smaller legos in one cube, the larger stackable items in one cube, the stuffed animals in one cube, and the list goes on!
TIP #2: KEEP TOYS ON ROTATION
Rather than constantly buying new toys, Shawna keeps her daughter’s toys on rotation. One set is in open bins in the playroom and another is in the closet, ready to be taken out when her daughter needs new toys. Instead of having a messy closet full of toys, Shawna uses her packing cubes to efficiently pack and store all the toys. Since the cubes are see through, she can easily find a particular toy without making a mess of her beautifully organized closet!
TIP #3: CREATE A GAME FOR CLEAN UP
Teach the kids from an early age that clean up can be fun! Create a game at the end of play time which keeps them engaged and excited. Ask them to divide up the items by "family" first, then place each family of toys into different cubes. You can even use a timer to see how "fast" they can finish. Each day they can try and beat their score!
