  • organizers with labeled bins, i find pics of that kinda toy online, print it, let the kid color it, and talk about what goes in teh bin, then i only let my son take out 2-5 bins at a time so that i doenst get too crazy to clean up but he isnt too limited... also, just pitch and donate my stuff i dont use anymore and the basement is a mess but i dont hav to see it...

  • bins bins and more bins... boxes... regularly tossing or donating old and broken toys.. regularly donating outgrown clothes.. washing laundry every day, keeping toys off the floor, giving each kid their own toy basket for quick cleanups during the day (just a large basket they can toss anything and everything into) and then every night before bed, making them put it all in its proper place.

  • I get daily e-mails from Martha Stewart with her "Organizing Tips of the Day" and they're really nice. I don't get a chance to do it though, but one day I will. :)
