Living with kids: Storage ideas for toys that won’t leave the house looking cluttered

Keeping your home clean and tidy when there’s kids running around is a constant battle for even the most organized of families. Young children are constantly pulling things out, jumping around and generally making a mess of the home. But if there’s one thing that really gets in the way, it’s those darned toys lying around everywhere – just what are you supposed to do with them?

One idea might be to go out and buy a load of cardboard boxes to put them in, but they won’t last long with some of the heavier toys – and especially not if the kids end up playing with the boxes too. Even plastic boxed can be a problem as you may end up with more than you can reasonably deal with, which means stacking them all up together. But that suddenly becomes a problem because then the kids can’t reach them easily, which means they’ll be constantly nagging mom and dad to help them out.

So what’s the best way to store all of those kids toys and keep your home neat and tidy when the kids aren’t using them?

Ultimately, you want things to be tidy and easy to tidy, without looking out of place or being a danger to your children. Its their bedroom or playroom, not a loft.

The good news is that it’s actually possible to have both – a clean home and lots of toys for the kids to play with. The following infographic created by U.K.-based retailer offers some great ideas on how to store away your kids’ toys, helping overworked moms and dads everywhere bring some order to the chaos that young children and their toys will always create.
