Happy Sunday everyone. It’s almost time for another busy week for us! Summer is approaching fast and we are doing all we can to get any organization out of the way before going to our summer house in June.
I want to start this month of April with preparing you for May. How? We are going to organize every room of your home together. Step by step.
Organization helps us by saving time and saving us money. It really does! We all need help saving time and money and this will help you SO much!
Let’s start with the Living room. We have 4 kids and they have toys. Here are 5 ways to organize your living room with kids.
1. Ottoman Turned Toy Box
As Melissa Boyer shares about her cute storage ottoman find below, “It has proved to be a fantastic purchase for us! My kids can easily get toys in & out of it… In addition, it can easily be moved around to the main sitting area if extra seating is ever needed.”

2. Hide Toys Away In A Cabinet
Closed storage options like built in cabinets or a free standing buffet or dresser, are great for storing toys in the living room. Consider using baskets or boxes within the space to contain smaller like items or designate drawers to different groups of toys.

4. The Coffee Table
This can be a beautiful space for storing toys or games, while still fitting in with the look and design on the room. Best options are a shelf underneath or several drawers. If you have items that don’t get accessed frequently, even a chest with a top that opens up would be great for hidden storage.
5. Behind The Sofa Toy Storage
Pull the couch away from the wall a bit and use that space for shelving to store toys in tubs or baskets. Just make sure it’s not obvious when first walking into the room.

Smaller Living Room Ideas
If you have a smaller living room you can try these! Place seating around each side of the coffee table and using the dresser as the focal point give the room a more spacious feel.
