Well, she cleaned it up! Here’s what Heidi* had to say:
“We decluttered some, but we also took advantage of unused space. We used the captain’s drawers under the bed to store toys that weren’t being used right now, and plan to switch them out occasionally (so that they’re “new”). We also utilized the colored buckets for sorting toys – to find them easily. It looks a lot better. Thank you! Oh – and we already put the word out to grandmas that we don’t need lots and lots of toys this year!” – Heidi*
I noticed three themes in Heidi’s note:
- She decluttered. (Specific tips on how to declutter kids’ spaces are here.)
- She utilized existing storage. (For frugal storage inspiration, check out these ideas about how I decluttered and organized my entire home without spending a dime.)
- She made the system easy for her kids to maintain.
“Toys seem to be in continual need of an overhaul! Take the time to find a good system for your family. For my family, we generally need to declutter our schoolroom (which doubles as a playroom) once every quarter. This takes anywhere from two hours to a solid day to accomplish each time, but doing so keeps the room under control in between declutter sessions.” – Davonne Parks, Chaos to Clutter-Free
