Kids Bedroom Ideas: The Organizing Process

**The best way to keep your kids organized is to get them in the habit of putting things away early!**

Utilize the general organizing procedure of purge, sort and store, and apply it when organizing kids rooms.


• Start by going through their items WITH THEM.

**This is important according to age group. You probably know what they don't use or value when they are small children.

Let's say from the age of 10 and older, it is imperative that you ask your children what can be given away or pitched. This introduces them to the purging process early and avoids any boundary crossing.**

• Depending on your situation, either decide what to keep and what to discard or help them do it. In order to do this, ask appropriate questions (i.e. Have they outgrown it? Do they still play with it? Are the pieces missing?).

• Do this for every part of their room - toys, clothes, and so on. Depending on your situation (i.e. how big the room is, how much stuff they have, how long their attention span is), break it down into doable projects.

• As you make decisions, put the item in the corresponding pile, bag or box - Keep, Donate, Trash.

**Make a "maybe" pile if there are items that they really don't use but aren't quite ready to give away. Put this stuff in a box or bin and store it in another room (i.e. basement or attic). If they don't request any of the items within 6 months, the box can go straight to a charity.

Also, make a "memorabilia" pile for things that bring them good memories but that they don't necessarily need out or accessible.**

• Take out the trash for a clean work area. Put the items going to a charity in your car. This avoids any undoing of your hard work.


• Now that all of the unnecessary items are gone, separate what's left into categories.

For example, let's say today's project was their closet. Sort the clothing that is being kept into categories such as t-shirts, shorts, socks, shoes and so on. This way you can see what and how much they have.


• Put the categorized items away accordingly. Going with the above example, let's say the pile of t-shirts was the largest. Utilize the closet shelf with the most vertical space or the deepest drawer for them.

• Here's more on organizing books, toys, and child artwork.


• The best way to get your kids in the habit of something is to teach it to them early and make it part of their daily routine (i.e. putting things away, making their beds, putting dirty laundry in the hamper).

• Twice a year or so, do a big purge session to keep up with how fast your children grow!

For Mothers, By Mothers

• Keep a binder for each kid to hold all health documents, school papers, etc. This way it's all together whenever you need it.

• Have your kids lay out their clothing for school the night before. This avoids confusion and arguments in the morning.
