Follow this kids’ bedroom organization plan to get things cleaned and organized in no time!  It’s not as hard as you think! This post is part of The Household Organization Diet.

Hello friends!  We’ve been on summer vacation for the last couple of weeks, but I’m spending this week working on the kids’ bedroom organization.  Honestly, we still have some work to do in the garage from last month’s Household Organization Diet tasks, but there are some building supplies in there that need to be used up first.  So the kids’ bedrooms it is!

Back to school time is the perfect time to work on cleaning and organizing your kids’ spaces – you need to go through their clothing anyways for the new school year {and due to the change of seasons}, art and school supplies need to be organized for homework, and, after a summer of play, it’s easy to see what toys they did and didn’t play with.

I know it can be tempting to do these tasks when the kids are out of the house, but I always recommend involving your children as much as possible {based on their age and maturity level}.  I think that kids are more likely to follow through with the plan if they have helped to set it up and it teaches them organization skills from an early age.  My kids have actually come up with some pretty good ideas, so try to run with their suggestions if you can.  They might not totally get it at first, but it will come! 😉

Getting things organized in the kids’ spaces will help make those morning routines run a little smoother and make post-play clean-ups a lot quicker.  Here are the tasks for the month…

I like to keep track of when I’m going to do what on a monthly calendar.  Make your {realistic!} monthly plan and stick to it! Some people like to do a little each day and others would like to block off a longer time period once per week.  Do whatever works best for your time schedule and personality.

Keep a notes sheet {or two!} handy to jot down any projects, home improvement ideas, extra tasks, etc. that you would like to do.  You might want to use one for tasks that you would like to do this month and a second sheet for future projects that you would like to do.

When you are going through your kids’ spaces, keep the tasks relatively short.  One day you may do a drawer or two, one day you might sort through and organize their books, and the next day you might go through their clothes.  Just keep things do-able!  Let your kids help out deciding what to keep and what to give away.  I find that my kids are pretty good at letting go of things that they have outgrown {I think I actually have the harder time!}, but some kids may need a little more guidance.  Show them what space they have, and then let them choose what they would like to fit into that space.  The rest will need to go.

For younger kids, you may want to look at having a toy rotating system where you keep out a few favorite toys and place the other toys away out of sight in a closet or other storage area.  Every few weeks {or however often you like} you can rotate the toys around so they are periodically getting “new” toys to play with.  I find that this can help kids stay more focused on the toys that they are playing with {instead of jumping around from toy to toy!}, keeps them stimulated by regularly getting new activities to play with, and helps to keep their rooms much more organized and easier to clean.
