Today we're organizing the kids' toy storage areas/playroom!


If you haven't already, please subscribe for a free, printable 30-Day Spring Tidying Challenge schedule!


1. Empty all toy bins, drawers, shelves.

2. Clean. Wipe down flat surfaces.

3. Decide which toys to keep. You should probably get your kids' input.

- Get rid of outgrown toys or anything that hasn't been played with in over a year.

- Consider getting rid of duplicates or extras. How many Hot Wheels does one kid need? Why isn't it called hoarding with you're a kid???

4. Divide everything from your kids' room into four groups/bins.

i) belongs in the room

ii) belongs elsewhere in the house

iii) fit to donate/sell used

iv) garbage/recycling

5. Return to the room the things you've decided to keep and organize neatly.

We keep the bulk of my son's playthings in rotating storage bins in the basement. He's allowed to have one bin out at a time, and must return all toys to the bin before he can switch it out for another.

This is how we keep our home from being consumed by kids' stuff!

6. Redistribute the items that belong elsewhere in the home.

7. Donate. Take the boxes designated as 'to sell/donate' and put them somewhere out of sight, but accessible (i.e. mudroom or basement). You'll continue to add to these each day for the rest of the month, with the casualties of each day's tidying task. At the end of the month, you can make a trip (or several) to your local donation bank and/or go on an online selling spree.

8. Dispose of and/or recycle items from the designated garbage/recycling bins.

That's it for day 21! Tomorrow's a catch up day, so you can continue with kids' toys tomorrow if you don't finish today! Don't forget to check out my One Room Challenge makeover!
