Kids can acquire plenty of paper clutter on their own, too. Keep their bedroom and playroom organized by integrating stylish storage boxes onto bookshelves and cabinets. Extra-wide boxes can keep precious artwork and drawings stowed away for safekeeping, and magazine holders can double as coloring book organizers. With a proper place for everything, cleaning up and staying organized can be a breeze for little ones.
Sometimes divide and conquer is the way to go. For this child's bedroom closet, a combination of hanging rods, cubbies, drawers and slide-out baskets helps store both clothes and toys. Use dead space under drawers for pull-out baskets that can provide a home for odd-shaped toys.
Stop sifting through clothing that no longer fits. Professional organizer Darla DeMorrow suggests keeping a box labeled “too small” for items your child has outgrown. When you have time, donate or pass down.
If you have toys and games of different sizes that you want to store together but have limited space, an organizer with drawers and cubes is a good solution. Label large fabric drawers for games and puzzles, and use clear-front cubes and smaller drawers to store tiny toys that have been grouped together by type.
Piles of toys often create clutter in family and media rooms, so control the chaos by using a storage system that addresses both toy and media storage. Go for a unit that combines drawers with open shelves, so you can use baskets for smaller toys and still have room for media equipment. Colorful soft hampers on each side create a home for stuffed animals.
Erin Marshall of Live Pretty on a Penny says, "Being organized is key when you live a leasing-lifestyle. Turn to space-saving and unconventional items that are beautiful and functional to effectively store and organize items." Here, this kid's room combines narrow shelves and picture shelves around a bench for ample toy and book storage.

Piles of small toys and picture books can overtake a child’s bedroom quickly, so it helps to create a home for these items. Free up floor space by using hanging wall organizers with pockets to sort and store thin and small-sized toys. Group the pieces according to type, so finding a favorite toy becomes an easier process.
