Storage Solutions to Organize Old Toys
Out with the old and in with the new—a known phrase with strong applicability to the toys your children hold dear.
With the Christmas just around the corner, it will soon be time to make room for a few new favourites. As you prepare for the invasion of Christmas gifts, it is important to implement a storage plan for your existing toy collection.
Below, we share a few tips to store away today’s toys to keep for future fun.
Put Away in Containers and Canisters
One way to organize and store old toys is with containers and canisters. Utilize those you have around the house, or purchase new ones to fit your specific set of toys. This will keep items secured and organized until you are ready to use them again.
Example containers include:
• Canvas baskets
• Coffee canisters
• Laundry baskets
• Lidded bins
• Shoe boxes
Select Designated Areas for Old Toys
Designate a specific area in your home for old toys to remain over the years. If you do not have a basement or attic to keep these items safely hidden away, utilize other spaces throughout your house, such as:
• Underneath beds
• Excess shelving space in your garage
Label and Colour Code Stored Items
Remain organized and eliminate confusion when it’s time to pull out your old toys again. Label or colour code storage containers in a system you will always recognize.
For example, select specific coloured bins to hold specific toy types, such as:
• Dolls (pink bin)
• LEGOS (green bin)
• Matchbox Cars (red bin)
• Puzzles (purple)
Consider a Self-Storage Solution
Sometimes the best answer may be to completely move old toys out of your home until you are ready to use them again. This may be the only way to assure your toys are safe, organized and hidden away.
