It would be better if you bring the kids to the store with you, and let them choose the type of storage boxes they want to place in their room. Doing so will help them realize the importance of keeping their things organized. Buying plain boxes can also be a good option since you can personalize them together with the kids. Allowing your kids to take on responsibility is a perfect way of teaching them the value of organization.
DIY Dress up Armoire: If you're looking for all the conveniences of a dress-up armoire without the price tag, this may be a good option for you. Purchase individual closet storage pieces and assemble them together. Try using cubbies, large cubicles, and coat racks. Purchase some coat hooks and mirrors and add them in the cubicles and rack area. Don't forget to pick up some baskets for the cubbies! Pros: Customizable, visual appeal, easy for child to use Cons: Hassle of finding and putting together the furniture.
Toy storage plays an important role in your kid's room. It keeps things organized and clutter free. And you shouldn't be the one who stores away all your kid's toys. Train your kid to keep his things away. But do it in a fun way like playing a game. This way, the room can be cleared faster and you have bonding time with your kid. Kids give better cooperation when you are not giving them instructions or commands.
All the organizational products in the world won't keep you organized. Setting things up in a practical way should always be on your mind while you're organizing. Here's an example; Some people really enjoy having a changing station or changing table in the nursery. However, an overwhelming percentage of people who buy them, never use them. How could something that you'll use several times a day that stores all of your related baby items never get used? Location, location, location! Most people do not have the nursery right off of their living room, where they'll spend most of their time. So, they end up using a changing pad instead. The lesson here is that being expensive or seeming like a great idea means nothing if it's not convenient to use.
An organized shared bedroom can help separate each child's personal things and give them each more privacy, but it may not end the cleaning difficulties. Be sure your children's shared bedroom has a convenient waste basket and plenty of kid's storage. At least once a day, have both children do a quick cleanup of their section of the room, as well as the shared section. Help them learn how to clean quickly and to go through their toys on a regular basis to get rid of broken things and items they no longer play with.
