Get Rid of Excess and Organize Your Home {Kids’ Bedrooms}

Get Rid Of Excess and Organize Your Home {Kids' Bedrooms}

So today is the second week of the Get Rid of Excess and Organize Your Home series and in this post I’m focusing on the kids’ bedrooms. The kids’ bedrooms is one of those spaces that I try to keep as simple as possible otherwise chaos ensues. Even with all of my efforts it’s not uncommon for me to step into my son’s bedroom and immediately wish I had worn a blindfold. Am I the only boy mom to go through this? I highly doubt it, but if you don’t have this problem please share your secrets with me!

I find that keeping the kids’ bedrooms organized can be a bit tricky as they get older. They want to add their own personal flair and often refuse to part ways with their favorite toys or collections. So how can you keep it clutter free and organized? Here are some simple tips to help you get started.

Give your kids the freedom to choose

As a mom, I know there are certain battles I just won’t win. So instead of saying no to everything my kids want to collect or put out on display, I let them choose a few of their favorite things and call it a day. My son absolutely LOVES Legos, but he also knows that in order to keep his endless supply of feet killers Legos he must keep them organized. So we use a shoe organizer that hangs over his door and have them sorted by color. It’s an easy way to keep everyone (and their feet) happy.

Use plastic drawers and storage containers

Use plastic drawers to organize clothing or items. My daughters’ closet has two of these to hold pajamas, socks and miscellaneous clothing items. These drawers are pretty inexpensive and the best deals can be found during back to school sales. I like to keep the drawers in the closet since they are clear and a bit messy looking. We also use metal containers to store blankets and other random things that don’t have a storage space as shown in the picture below.

Get creative with what you already own

Before you go out and purchase tons of bins and containers to organize, make use of the space you already have. For example; I currently store baby wipes and blankets in my daughters’ bedroom dresser. We also have a twin mattress that gets stored under my oldest daughter’s bed to use when she has a guest sleep over. It can be easily pulled out when needed, but doesn’t take up any extra space when it’s not in use. My son’s books and school supplies are stored under his bed in small boxes that are labeled so that he can easily slide them out when he needs them. Always try maximize the space you currently have, by getting creative with the furniture you already own. Saves you money and space!
