One of the hardest tasks is organizing children’s toys and personal belongings because they change with the seasons and there are so many different types of items. One of the other reasons is that many parents don’t like to take away the control of their children belongings or they want the child to be responsible for themselves. I would like to suggest that doing some of the organization with your child might be successful or doing it for them as a model could also be effective.
Here are some basic ideas for the major areas of chaos.
As closets get cluttered and messy try using
• Plastic bins
• Proper hangers
• Drawers and dividers
• Plastics Containers
• Remember “Less is more”
Books and School Work
• Sort Books together by category, put them in a bookshelf that is not overcrowded
• Old school papers can be stored in cardboard boxes or plastic bins that are labeled clearly\
• Photo boxes
• Storage containers
• Detailed shopping list on the computer
• Easy and quick planned meals
• Healthy snacks
Take the time out everyday to organize something in your house, make it a daily habit and maintain all your’ existing systems.
