I have always been an organized person and keeping my home tidy is big deal. Now that I am a mom, I’ve had to make room for our son’s toys and other stuff that take up space. I always see parents showing the mess in their house they just don’t have the energy to clean up, mostly because the kids just make a mess again so they see it as a waste of time. This is not me, lol. There are a bunch of ways to store toys and not let them overcome a space. And it can be done in style! Here are a few tips to help you get your home in tip top shape and have the play areas your kids need. If you don’t have children, you can also benefit from these helpful suggestions too!

Bins and baskets are always a win win. Not only are there so many options out there, they are pretty affordable and tend to go with all types of styles.

Boxes and crates are cool too because you can stack them and design your own structures. Plus, they immediately turn your storage items into accessories, so you will want to use items that are nice to look at. This may help your children to get involved in cleanup time too!

Containers you can see through are nice when you need to keep smaller things tidy. And its another opportunity to incorporate a little bit of fun into the space.

And then you have old fashioned shelving. You can never go wrong with these. Whether they are on the wall or stand on their own, arranging shelves is always fun. Put pretty things on display and keep it fresh.
