Tips and Tricks For Organizing Children’s Room
It’s a tough challenge to keep kid’s room organized and clutter-free all the time. With all the stuff (toys, school items, used socks etc.) that accumulates overtime, it’s a bit overwhelming to clean-up.
But not all hopes are gone for parents and guardians. With the below organization tips, tricks and advice, organizing a kid’s room can become easier than it ever was.
Control the toys.
Toys create mess and chaos in a kid’s room if not taken care of. If your kids have lots of toys, here’s a simple trick that can prevent it from cluttering all over the place. Store some of the seldom used toys in an area out of his/her reach. Better yet, keep it in a storage room or in a cabinet. This way, your kid will only get the ones she/he usually plays. This means less clutter and mess to take care of once she/he is finished playing. If the kid asked about taking out the other toys, tell him/her that you have to store the other ones first before he/can take out the others. This approach can keep the toy clutter into a minimum level.
Use clear plastic bins.
Using clear bins to store the kid’s stuff will allow him/her to see the items inside quite easily. Just make sure to categorize all things and stuff properly. For example, one bin contains stuffed toys, the other ones contain Lego pieces and some others contain dolls or toy soldiers. This will prevent the toys from being scattered all over the floor in the search for a specific piece or item.
Control the clothes.
Just like their toys, it’s highly recommended that you store seldom used clothes in a separate storage cabinet and let the favorite ones placed in an accessible storage space. This way, you or your kid won’t have a hard time digging piles of clothes just to find his/her favorite character shirt. You can also donate some of the old clothes that don’t fit with the kid anymore.
Teach the kid the importance of organization.
If your kids will know why organization is important, I am quite sure that asking them to clean up their mess will become easier than before. Tell your kids that organizing their items can help them become a better individual in the near future. Tell them that it’s for their own safety and well-being too. Tell them that an organized and well-kept room keeps bugs and insects away from their room.
It’s really a tough and almost impossible task to keep the children’s room tidy at all times. But with the help of these tips, things will surely lighten up.
