One of my New Year’s resolutions is to de-clutter, particularly when it comes to ALL OF THE KIDS’ STUFF. They’ve outgrown many of their toys or they are broken and missing pieces (I swear those things reproduce overnight too! 😉 ). My kiddos share rooms, so I’ve been looking for some clever ways to organize their closets. Here are a few smart, space-saving ideas I’ve found…
1. Pegboard Wall
Pegboard is SO versatile! I love this idea from Slippers By Day.
2. Book Shelf Doors from Pantry Shelving
There are so many great ways to utilize those closet doors with vertical storage. This Book Shelf Door Idea could be used in so many different ways, too!
3. Shoe Organizer Hack
Use a shoe organizer to store blankets and other baby necessities.
Use it to store toys and stuffed animals!
4. Laundry Basket Hacks
This Outgrown Laundry Basket Hack is pure genius, especially in those early months when babies are growing SO fast!
I like to use an empty laundry basket (A what?? – What’s an EMPTY laundry basket, right??) to quickly gather toys and other items from around the house for my kiddos to put away later. This Hanging Laundry Basket Idea is so smart!
5. Labeled Bins
Keeping Labeled Closet Bins is a great way to help kids be in charge of cleanup in their own rooms. If they’re too young to read, try adding a pic of the item along with the words on the label.
6. Floating Bookshelves
These Floating Bookshelves sit nearly flush against the wall so they take up very little room, while creating a beautiful wall display of books. Love it!
7. Tackle Lego Organization
First, sort your Lego pieces into stack-able totes like these above…
…and then organize the manuals into 3-ring binders. This is 100% GENIUS! Those darn manuals are always getting torn to shreds in my house. See more HERE.
8. Foam Days of the Week Separators
Just some simple foam squares work well for separating hangers in your closet! Check it out HERE.
9. Chain Hack
This Space-Saving Chain Hack utilizes vertical space to help you fit more items in a smaller closet. Love it!
10. Tank Top Organization
Have lots of tank tops? Check out these inexpensive and space-saving ideas!
