Keeping a clean house when you have young children isn’t an easy task. There are toys spread out everywhere and they are having fun playing. You do your best to keep up with putting the same toys away, but there is only so much you can do in a 24-hour day.

Thankfully there is a way to keep you and your kids happy at the same time. Here are some easy ideas for getting organized to help you create the “semi-straight” yet kid-friendly home you’ve always wanted.

Before you start, make a plan of what needs to be done to get your house organized. Go through each room and identify what room needs extra storage as well as what type of storage would work. You can then go out and invest in a few storage and space-saving solutions.

Great places for storage are under the bad, hanging bar in your child’s close and of course shelves. You can find some great deals on all kinds of storage solutions from large plastic bins to shelves at super and discount stores. You may also want to check out your local home improvement store.

Now is also a great time to change room layouts. By organizing furniture and storage in a practical manner it will be easier to stay organized and keep items organized. If your children are constantly leaving clothes on their bedroom floor, give them each a laundry hamper and put them in charge of putting their clothes in at the end of the day.

Color code the kids’ drawers or toy boxes to make it easier to put toys away. For example, cars and trains can go in a yellow box while blocks go in the green box. You can also do this for the sock drawer or t-shirts drawer by placing a color sticker on each one or you can even label it with a picture of the items meant to go in there. Even small children will grasp this easy organizing concept.

Now that the storage is all sorted out, you can start organizing. The best way to do this is to tackle one room at a time. Make three piles, one for charity, one for keeping and one for the trash. Here is a simple rule to use on what needs to go. If you haven’t used it within the past five weeks (and doesn’t have huge sentimental value) then it is time to either store it or give it away.

Just get through it and then take a moment to appreciate all you have accomplished.
