Arranging the huge amount of toys after every time your child has finished playing with them can be a big problem. You might be spending hours on the job of organizing toys right from the tiny jigsaw puzzle parts to large stuffed toys. Though, no matter how nicely you have arranged everything, the next day the toy clutter is going to be the same again. If you are facing these problems, then here are some tips on getting rid of the clutter, that will help you save valuable time and make your child's room appear a little more organized and neater.

How to Organize the Clutter of Toys?
  • The first thing you need to do is sort out the toys. This means sorting out toys into three groups. So, lay down three bed sheets and sort the toys into three groups, by placing them on the appropriate bed sheet.
  • First separate out the toys which are broken or not at all used by the child. You can also get rid of paints or play dough which is expired.
  • In the second group place toys which have not been used by your child for the past 3 months. Such toys might not be your child's favorite toys now, but he/she might remember them not seeing in the closet and demand for them later on. Hence, keep such toys in the storeroom.
  • The third group should be of toys which are your child's favorite or often-played toys. In this group also include the keepsake toys like antique toys or special gifts from important people from your family or from close friends.
  • The first group of the toys which are not at all used and can be gotten rid of, and it should be either donated, sold, or thrown away.
  • Many children tend to cycle the liking and disliking towards the toys. The group of toys which are not used by your children is the second group of toys. Store such unused toys in a plastic bin and keep the bin in a storeroom. You can keep cycling the toys every month, by swapping the stored toys with the least-played toys kept in their room.
  • Now, you are left with the third group of toys which is the most used and favorite toys group. While decluttering these toys sort the toys out into different small groups. The grouping of used toys can be according to puzzles, board games, stuffed toys, cars, scientific toys, educational toys, sports items, building games, etc.
  • To store the various small groups of toys you can come up with your own storage system. You can use large cartoons, or small shoe boxes as storage containers. Cover them up with fancy paper, and then use them to store the toys.
  • However, the most effective way to store the toys is to arrange them in small to large transparent containers. Store the small toys like cars, puzzles, and board games into the small containers and keep the large containers for toys like sports items or stuffed toys. You can also use hooks for hanging the plush toys. This way you know where a toy belongs to, and it will be easy for the child to spot a particular toy.
  • After you are done arranging the toys to the individual groups into the containers, label each container. This way even your child can help you arrange the toys into their respective containers.
Your kid might not take the changes in a positive way initially, but eventually will understand the convenience of the arrangement. An organized kid's room is always a pleasure to be in and your child will end up enjoying himself much more than he otherwise does. So follow the above steps to control the toy clutter effectively.
