Divide playroom items by colour:

  • Humans are very visual, categorising by colour is a great way for any child or adult to find something.
  • Use with clear containers or jars
  • Works well with books, games, books, lego, clothes and crafts


2. Hang stuff up

Divide playroom into areas (do this even if you don’t have much space):

  • Stand back and look at the activities your child or teenager does now
  • Categorise and put similar things together
  • Then match the storage to each of these

You might want to consider zones for
Dress up
Desk for homework 
Messy play
Lego or Duplex
Large toys
Soft toys


5. Sentimental box

Create a keepsake box for sentimental items:

  • Just like us if we mix up everyday items with our keepsakes it adds to the clutter
  • Get kids used to this concept early in life
  • Encourage them to store the ‘just for sentimental items’ somewhere special
  • Sit with them to edit this intermittently
