Stephanie – When designing your child’s room, did you forget to designate space for all of the stuff that accumulates? Here are a few simple and affordable ways to de-clutter the room, creating a harmonious space for sleep and play. Solve organizational problems by giving everything a place of its own. Separate and categorize all items in the room. Use baskets, plastic bins, or boxes, and clearly label each one. Don’t forget to designate a container for all of those miscellaneous items that don’t seem to fit into any category. If you don’t want to spend the money on containers, you can always use a plain brown box and cover it with wrapping paper or construction paper. Whether you have a small closet or a large walk in, there is always space if you organize wisely. Separate and categorize all items. Use shoeboxes, bins, or baskets and label accordingly. Then, stack them on the shelves and under the clothing rack. Prevent the baby room from getting over stuffed, by going through the closet and dresser at least every three months or so, and removing what no longer fits. Label boxes or plastic bins by clothing size to stow away for babies to be. There is also storage space to be found under the crib or bed. Purchase several long and thin clear storage containers to store out of season clothing underneath. Promote reading from an early age by making sure you have plenty of shelving space for books. Keep a donate box in an accessible space. Each time you come across something your child no longer uses, put it in the box. When the box gets full, take it to the donation center.
