Organizing the Kids' Room Checklist

A well-organized room offers two big benefits: Kids can find what they’re looking for fast, and the room stays neater because everything has a place. 

  • Make a mess. Start by dumping all the toys on the floor.
  • Assess and categorize. Group toys by type and then by size: small, medium, and large. Make another pile for anything that’s broken or that your kids have outgrown.
  • Donate or toss. Call up local charities and arrange for a pickup of the items in good condition that your kids no longer use; toss anything that’s beyond repair.
