    • Sort and group smaller toys together.
    • Put containers on a shelf where you and your children can easily see what it inside each box.
  • Hang netting on the wall
    • For every parent’s favorite collection of children’s stuffed animals, give them a home that’s in plain view, but not cluttering the bed (or the floor).

    • Easy for little ones to get out clothes and also to put away.
