Right now we are working on organizing the millions of toys that our kids have amassed over the years. Since moving, there are four boxes of toys that we haven't even unpacked yet, and they are not missing whatever is in there one bit. We have toys scattered everywhere.
So todays tip, or tips really, are these:
Get a labeler. Get plastic totes, plastic toy bins, whatever you want, so long as it holds toys, and holds them well. Organize the toys in whatever way you like, and label them. That way, your child knows what toys go in what bin. I have seen some suggestions that said make a tote of toys for each day of the week, and only bring out one tote per day. That way it all stays organized, and there's an even rotation of toys. I don't know if I'll be doing that, but we will be working on one type of toy at a time. Hopefully it will work.
We have been using clear totes with lids, which is also helpful for organization, because you don't have to open the tote to see what's in it.
