Kids Room & Toy Organization Hacks

Kids rooms are notoriously messy, so I gathered as many amazing tips as I could find:
Little Bins for Little Hands has a clever way to keep track of all those little LEGO pieces…sort them and keep them in a tool box! Not only are there compartments for different kinds of pieces, but the lid snaps on to prevent spills.
Preschool Toolkit puts extra markers, scissors, etc. in a popsicle mold! It’s perfect for craft tables and homework stations!
A Montessori inspired kids bedroom (from Every Star is Different)
Mama Smiles uses simple shoe racks from Costco to store toys in the kids room or playroom. There’s a box for everything and every box has a place on the shelf! Toys are contained, yet easy for kids to get to and they can see them all!
Moms & Crafters shows a trick to expand the pockets of a hanging shoe rack so they can hold kids books. So clever and a thrifty solution when you don’t have bookshelves or want to keep a favorite few books at hand.
Closet Organization Hacks
I love this trick from The Typical Mom to organize the linen closet! Instead of just stuffing everything in the closet, you fold and place an entire sheet set inside one pillow case. That way you know you have everything you need in one place to make the bed!
Those shoe racks are SO handy! Busy Kids Happy Mom uses a hanging shoe rack to organize the hall closet and extra winter gear. Each pocket holds gloves, scarves, etc. neatly, but they’re also still easily accessible.
Kitchen Organization Hacks
My dishwashing gloves kept falling in the sink and getting wet, so I did this simple hack to keep them nearby, dry, and out of sight. Double-sided tape and clothespins on the inside of a cabinet door is the secret…super thrifty and easy to assemble! Read more kitchen hacks here!
