Once you have everything sorted out (no pun intended!) and you know what you are keeping, it’s time to stock up on bins. Toys and games that have lots of pieces (re: Legos, Barbies + accessories, etc.) should have their own designated storage bin. Other items should be divided up by likeness and kept in clear bins so your kids can see into them. Clear bins are by far the most efficient type of storage because it limits clutter when kids are looking for that one specific toy; instead of dumping every single item out during the search, they can easily find what they’re looking for without having to unpack and sift through everything.
When choosing storage bins for your playroom organization, make sure you’re selecting items that are kid friendly. You’ll want to avoid hard-to-open lids, bins that have a lock system, etc. Look for options that are on the shallow side so kids can easily reach into them (especially helpful if you plan to have them help pick up their toys). Open storage bins are also handy and kid friendly! Don’t forget to secure any organization furniture like shelves, tables, etc. to the wall. Chances are, kids will find their way on top of any furniture in the playroom, and we want to make sure it doesn’t fall over in the process.
