3. A hanging pegboard is the perfect kids closet organization for storing small accessories and other odds and ends.
Pegboards are so versatile, but one place you might not have thought to ever hang them is for your kids closet organization!
I found a premade one at Target on a whim which was the perfect size for a tiny awkward wall inside my daughter’s closet, but you could also easily DIY one by buying your own pegboard sheet. It could potentially even double as decor depending on what you’re hanging from it.
4. Grab an affordable paper towel holder to double as scrunchie storage.

Some versatile wire shelves aren’t just for your pantry and spice rack. Take advantage of vertical space on the inside of your closet doors to store all of your children’s books and keep their room clutter-free.
6. This hanging kids closet organization can be used for more than just shoes.

Speaking of pulling double duty, if you’re keeping the books out for everyone to see, then consider hanging a shoe organizer over the door instead. Not only will it be perfect for all sizes of shoes, but you can even store diapers, wipes, socks, burp cloths, bathing suits, lotion, small toys, and so much more! With 24 pockets in each one, your kids closet organization possibilities are endless.
7. Traditional toy storage can double as clothing storage too.

If your house ends up with kid stuff everywhere outside of their closet, consider hanging some storage on the wall to store clothing, toys, and more! My daughter has a tiny closet so we wanted to maximize every inch of space.
8. A label maker is the answer to your kids closet organization and your kids will know just where to put everything too.

Keeping labeled bins in the closet is a great way to help kids be in charge of the cleanup in their own rooms yet helps them know just where everything should go. We’re swooning over this bright, organized closet by Boxwood Clippings.
As a tip, if your little one is too young to read, try adding a picture of the item along with the words on the label.
9. Floating shelves are great for children’s books and will double as decor.
MBYD Handmade Floating Bookshelves, Set of 3 – $50.39 (regularly $55.99)
Using floating bookshelves to display your child’s favorite books is an easy and eye-catching way to organize and decorate at the same time if you don’t want to hide them in the closet. Plus, they take up very little room for even small spaces so it’s true you really can’t have too many books. 🙌🏻
10. L.O.L. Dolls, LEGOs, and other small toys need a perfect organization system, too.
Sterilite Layer Stack & Carry Box – $17.94
The pain of stepping on a rogue LEGO or L.O.L. Surprise Doll piece is enough for anyone to want to get a handle on your kids closet organization! 😂 By using something like these stackable storage bins, you’ll have a much more streamlined approach to decluttering tiny toy chaos.
Directions need storage too! If a plastic Ziploc baggie isn’t cutting it for your LEGO directions, organize them all in a 3-ring binder with some plastic sleeves to keep them easily accessible and safe from wear and tear.
