  • I saw these hanging net things on Clean House. They hang from the ceiling, are divided into compartments from the floor up, and the kids' toys were collected into those. There are plastic tubs with lids you can get at Target, etc, for clothes storage. Good luck!

  • you can go to the dollar store and by baskets and such for toys, for the clothes, my hubby made this shelf with pole on it so it can hold clothes stacked on top and you can hang them.

    i think they make hanging "closets" or something like that. you can hang your clothes from this hanging closet, if you hang it from your ceiling. if all else fails, move dressers to another room that no one really uses and store everyone's closes and toys in there.

  • Maybe a big shelving unit with bins? Smaller ones higher up for clothes and bigger ones low for toys? Might get the clutter under control. Good luck I have a similar problem, I'm the last one in the house to get a dresser. My clothes are stacked not so neatly along the wall of my room! I feel your pain!

  • try getting some totes that will fit under your bed for your clothes, as well as totes that will fit under the crib for toys..lol, i'm in the same situation. my room is a mess as well. well if you get any other good ideas pm me, I would like to know some too... those are the only things I've been able to do so far. (don't have a closet in my room :( )
