20 Inspirational Ideas for Conquering Toy Clutter

By Emily |

It's a disaster zone!

I’m getting real here, to the left is a picture of what our guest room/office/toy room looked like this morning when I got up. Yes, it is a little bit a lot of a disaster. And unfortunately, it looks like this on a regular basis. That room is my nemesis.

The problem is that even if we try to keep it picked up regularly, we really don’t have a good solution for storing and organizing our toys, either in this room, or in the kids’ bedroom, which is the upstairs converted attic in our house. So as soon as the kids start to play again, it looks like this pretty quickly.

One of my goals for the new year is to get organized around our house, and also in anticipation of possibly doing some room rearranging, I’ve been on the search for cute and practical toy organization and storage ideas.

Here are 20 of the best ideas I found for conquering our toy clutter:

20 Inspirational Ideas for Conquering Toy Clutter

Using clear containers on shelves

I love the idea of using clear containers with lids, so that kids can easily see what is in each container, both to find what they want to play with, and to put things away. I also really like the vertical use of space.
Find tons of great clear containers and great tips for organizing at The Container Store.

Do you constantly battle toy clutter at your house?

    Thanks for posting this! Its amazing how every few months my daughter’s toy accumulation changes and then I feel like I need a whole new organization plan again :)
    The lego table is brilliant. I am going to IKEA asap to get what I need to make that happen – my daughter will love it.
