Hi! I'm Christine from So Domestically Challenged and today we're going to be taking a look
at playroom organization.
My favorite organizing system for kids, is the Trofast, from IKEA. The Trofast comes
in a variety of sizes and styles and the bins and shelves are interchangeable, which allows
for a lot of variety in whatever you want to do.
It's also a system that can grow with your child. You can use it in all different sized
spaces, from small rooms to large rooms. You can get systems where everything is at children's
level or you can get systems where some things are up higher where they can't reach.
They're fully customizable. This is a large Trofast system: It's about 6 feet tall.
The bins slide in and out easily.
And they come in a variety of colors and sizes.
One of the things that I like to do with our Trofast system is use these drawer dividers
available at IKEA. The dividers fit nicely right in to the Trofast bins and they allow
you to sort various small items.
The Trofast also comes in a sort of "mini" size. This is fantastic for items that don't
take up a full drawer.
The mini size Trofast is also great for holding art supplies.
A little trick that a lot of people don't know is that these small bins will fit in
the narrow Trofast systems.
This works out really well if you have some items that are kind of odd sized, maybe something
that's tall.
Another thing that I love about the Trofast are the shelves.
As you can see, I love to use them for our board games.
And here's a tip: Store your board games sideways. You'll have easy access to them without having
an avalanche of games falling on you.
In this bin, I used another divider to divide up various card games, Bananagrams, tanagrams,
these little builder things and jacks.
In this bin, I hold all of our puzzles.
A lot of people think that micromanaging kid's toys is a bad idea and that kid's can't keep
up the system. But walk in to any classroom and you'll see kids in classrooms are putting
things away in very specific places all the time. The key to this is to create a system
that micromanages but it makes sense and make sure that you stick with it.Create visual
ques.
On the system that we use at my house, we use clear labels, but if your children are
too young to read, you can find pictures on the Internet of whatever the toy is and print
them out and just tape them onto the bin and it works great.
When you set the expectation that things are put away in a certain place and your child
finds that they can easily get to things when they're looking for them, they will maintain
the system and clean up is a lot easier when they've only taken out one bin of one item
instead of one bin full of many kinds of items.
When the expectation and the system are in place, kids will put things away where they
belong with very little complaining.
