Organizing Toys and Tutus

Toy Organization Ideas

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group and Home Depot & Rubbermaid, but all opinions are my own. #pmedia #AllAccessOrganizers http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO

We are in completely makeover mode over here. This means there’s a lot of decluttering and organizing going on. Organizing and delucttering = happiness in my book! Last week we started on the boys room by painting, replacing the furniture, and organizing their toys. While we don’t have a full room makeover plan for my daughters room, I am determined to declutter her toys and get her room organized before she starts school in a few weeks. With the help of our new Rubbermaid All Access Organizers we are well on our way to reaching our goal.

Toy Organization Ideas

We recently picked up the All Access Organizers from Home Depot. The staff at my local Home Depot were so helpful and actually quite funny. My Home Depot had them stacked on an end cap, with two colors to choose from; a navy and turquoise blue. I had planned on getting the navy for the boys room but I knew the little miss needed them more. Her tutus and dolls are always on the ground so I wanted an easy option for her to store them away when she isn’t playing.

Rubbermaid All Access Organizers

Our home is filled with Rubbermaid organizers. I use them for craft supplies, in the garage, and closets to easily keep things tidy. Of course I couldn’t wait to try the new All Access organizers.

These organizers are brilliantly made with a front and top access. You can stack them, easily see what’s inside each container and open the front door to remove an item without having to unstack all of the containers. It’s an organization lovers dream! The organizers are perfect for closets, the laundry room, or for organizing toys and craft supplies.

How to keep toys organized

My daughter is such a girly girl that I knew it would be fun to dress up her containers with vinyl. I added various flowers to coordinate with her room decor.


See this? No more tutus on the floor! This Fancy Nancy is learning to pick up her tutus with an easy to use organizer.

Organizing Craft Supplies

Craft Room Organization Tips

Every year as soon as Christmas is over I get anxious to start simplifying our home. Organizing craft supplies in my craft hutch was at the top of my list. This month with gift wrapping, handmade gift making, and lack of time its become total chaos in my craft space. We dedicated a corner in our master bedroom for my craft supplies so that I didn’t have to use the kitchen counter anymore. I thought it would be easier to keep track of everything but that’s not always the case. I’d show you the entire craft space but I’m not done organizing and decorating it yet, so that will have to wait for another post. But I will show you my craft hutch beautifully organized just the way I imagined it would be when I bought it last summer.

Its simple with neutral colors, definitely my ideal craft space!

Here is the before…

Organizing craft supplies

As you can see nothing matched and it was so disorganized that I had a hard time keeping track of what supplies were in which bin. These are only my most used craft supplies, half of our master bedroom closet is used for craft supplies as well-yikes! That’s a whole new project to work on in 2013, but for now I needed something to help me organize my craft space. I found a 4 pack of baskets on clearance for $13 at Lowes this week and was thrilled that they were exactly what I’ve been looking for. Organizing Craft Supplies

The tags remind me of faux chalkboard tags. To make them I used my Brother P-touch labeler, die cutting machine, Core’dinations Black Magic cardstock and sand-it set. Once my labels were cut I used the paper sander to lightly sand the edges and front of the tags. The black magic cardstock has a color on the backside that appears when you sand or cut it (for these tags I used the black and white paper). Then I created labels for each basket. The deco modes on the P-Touch Labeler are SO cute and there are a large variety of icons for any theme you’re looking for.

Brother P-Touch Labeler

I’ve been using my Brother P-Touch labeler to organize the baskets as well as various other projects around the house. This little tool is a lifesaver! I’m a visual person, I like to see where everything is neatly put away and have some sort of organization system going on with everything in the house. We are in the process of tackling the kids rooms this weekend. Target has some pretty cute plastic bins for kids. We bought heart patterned containers for my daughters toys and we started labeling them by toy group. Santa brought her toys with way too many small pieces this year, so we need to make sure we don’t lose them!
