Organizing with Kids – Little Boys’ Bedroom

Organizing with Kids – Little Boys’ Bedroom

Bensroombefore
Are you starting to wonder if I HAD any clean rooms when I started organizing? This was my youngest sons’ bedroom before I started the simplify101 organizing with kids class. Problems here are once again laundry and poor storage for things like sleeping bags, toys, and a favorite suitcase.

Another problem was too many books and no place to store things the boys wanted easy access to. In case you’re wondering, we have so many books because my husband sells them.

The closet had a similar problem to my daughter’s room. Half the closet was taken up with my husband’s clothing and there was inadequate toy and outsized clothing storage. Having five boys means the youngest has a lot of hand-me-downs! That and the neighbor gives me clothes, too.

Toys were spread out with inefficient storage.

Hanging from the bunk is a hamper that was being used for toy storage by the next to the youngest.

Using the same drawers from Target I got for my daughter’s room, I was able to organize all the outsized clothing. I am drowning in regular plastic bins, so couldn’t justify a really cute toy bin, but this is functional. The legos are stored in the closet now and the suitcase doesn’t have to be pulled off a top shelf.

Sleeping bags are now stored in handled plastic bags that can be easily pulled down and just as easily stuffed back in.

More Target drawers for more outsized clothing and I’m so proud of my husband for decluttering his clothes!

The baby and preschool books were donated, bookends were put in place, and the kids’ banks and junk bowl were put where they can be accessed easily.

One plastic chair was decluttered, leaving only the matching chair that the little guy needs to reach his undies drawer. That drawer was seriously decluttered, too.

I moved the sheets from the top shelves of the closet to an underbed bin for the lower bunk and into the hamper for the top bunk. This will give me one less thing I have to help with.

On the wall facing the bedroom door, I put another cute piece of artwork that matches the color scheme of the room in a Target art frame.

Hope I’ve inspired you to get your litte boy’s bedroom organized!
