One In One Out
Not only will swapping out toys help keep it interesting, but it will also help you follow the One In One Out rule which is as simple as it sounds. When they receive a new toy, an old one gets given away. Help your child select one toy they have outgrown or are no longer interested in, and swap it out.
Sort Clothing by Size
Keep only the clothing your children currently fit in their closets and dressers and store the larger sizes. When they’ve outgrown the clothes in their closet it will be extremely easy to swap them out. We like to use these bags and store them in a closet or under the bed or crib.
Just as with toys, interest in books will change as well. The best solution for this is to keep the collection of books to a minimum and use your local library to discover new books. A small bookshelf such as this IKEA Billy Bookcase is a great addition to any child’s room. Adding baskets or bins will provide a little extra storage as well.
Consider expanding the storage space in your child’s closet. Most closets have one shelf and one hanging rod, leaving a lot of valuable space unused. If you are stuck for ideas Pinterest is a great place to look for inspiration for closet organization.
Involve Your Children
When you involve your children in organizing you teach them organizational skills that will stay with them throughout life. Encouraging them to donate their unused books, toys, and clothing also fosters a sense of community and giving.
These are just a few ideas to help you get started. Still unsure where to start? We are here to help! Our team of organizers can suggest storage solutions that suit your needs, and our handyman can take care of assembly and installation.

Before Olena I had experience working with other organizers. She was not like anybody I met before. She understood my needs to start with and she was patient. Olena helped me organize my pantry and kitchen then the basement, crawl space, kids clothes and my closet. When the job was done my husband and I were very happy about the changes. After organizing the majority of the home which measured 4200 square feet. Then we decided that it was a good time to sell our house. So we hired Olena to pack our house and she was very efficient and productive. She colour coded and labeled all the boxes which coincided with all the rooms . When we moved to our new home Olena unpacked and organized everything. I recommend Olena to anybody who is tired of clutter and wants positive change and wellness in life.
Olena was quick to respond and professional! She was on time, brought everything we needed to pack up my home office! She packed and labeled everything with care with her assistant! They are kind and caring and accommodating. We won’t hesitate to call Olena again for our packing and organizing needs for any size of rooms. Thank you for making this packing experience painless and stress less.
Olena has been absolutely amazing to work with. She is organized and efficient with respect to what is needed and has helped us be decisive in making the right decisions as we decluttered our home. I would recommend her to any job. Her attention to detail and her personal attention is very much appreciated.
Home organizing can be a stressful process for a home owner who feels overwhelmed with mess. Olena was very professional when we encountered some communication problems during the process, and honestly seeks to make each and every client happy. She did a fantastic job at making my kitchen more functional for my family. Thank you, Olena, for your service.
Olena is amazing and a delight! We needed a lot of help to de-clutter our townhouse and reorganize our kitchen to make sense for our needs before the arrival of our second child. Not only did she bring a great attitude but also a tonne of patience. She was an absolute work horse when it came to grinding through the sheer quantity of things we had in our house. Thanks Olena!!!
