Toy Organizing in 2020 – For the Kids & Big Kids

Every year, we tend to get new toys, whether we’re young or old. Sometimes that takes the form of LEGO blocks, other times a power tool or kitchen gadget. Whatever we gather over the years, we tend to accumulate things until they’re either specialized or we get into using other things. While it can be hard sometimes to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle, at least we can make a good effort in the new decade to keep organized and put those things to use that we haven’t touched in a while. I’d like to share a few tips for keeping your toys, or your kid’s toys, more accessible this year.

  1. Make use of organizing products! There are more options than ever to find products which fit your living space. Some amazing products will hang on the inside of doors, make use of wall-space, or help declutter your surfaces at home. Things like multiple-device charging docks can help keep your electronics in check, or inner-cabinet shelves can help keep little bottles of spices where you can easily see them.
  2. Keep to a file system! Along with handy organizers, setting up a system for your important documents (Or even not so important ones) can be a lifesaver. If you can spare a single drawer and a few dollars for a set of expandable folders, you can set up an organized system. One folder for receipts, one folder for manuals, one folder for taxes, one for the water bill, et cetera. Organizing all of your paperwork might only take a good amount of effort once, and then it’s as easy as sorting it as it comes into your life! You’ll thank yourself every time you know where something is, rather than digging through the pile on the kitchen table.
  3. Dig through the old stuff! If you do spring cleaning, make sure to take note of what has gathered dust or not. If it’s dusty, that probably means you haven’t used it in so long that it’s time to consider regifting or donation. This goes for the adults and the kids both. Toys and tools, cleaned up, can be given away again, donated to those less fortunate, or sold through garage sales or various apps/services. This can help clear up a bit of space in the house and make someone’s day all in one!
  4. Make use of clear totes or plastic containers! The important thing here is to note that you can see what you have stored. An old adage is: ‘Out of sight, out of mind.’ This is true for messes as well. If you don’t see what you have, you probably won’t think about it much. For kid’s toys, tools, paperwork, trinkets, electronics – If you can see just how much stuff you have, you might be tempted to organize and keep it clean more often! This can also help when you’re looking for something in particular. If you have trouble labeling boxes or organizing toys, a clear bin may help you quickly identify what is where.

While not everyone can find the same advice helpful, sometimes changing things up can help create a more organized, stress-free home!
