Do you have a basement playroom? How is it organized?

We can't seem to get ours into good shape. How do you organize all the toys and television space?

  • We have a small room on the main floor that's the "playroom" generally it's a mess, but that's it's purpose. We do have shelves and totes and clean up every other day or so, but it's the one room where messes are allowed.

  • Thanks, Mom2Jack.
    That is the reason we are going to use the basement, too. We want it out of sight, want some adult space back. I just want some organization for sanity's sake and to teach the kids to take care of their things. I was thinking of canvas bags on hooks at kid level. who else has some ideas?

  • lol organized!! not so much more like a bomb went off. but we have shelves and cubby holes and toy boxes for things to go into when the time comes! we dont have a tv in there but we have a small love seat on one wall then all the things the toys should go in on the other. good luck!

  • Organized? What's that? I have shelves for stuff to go on, and some bins, but usually it's a toy explosion. I figure, whatever. I can clean it up enough to vacuum in about 5 minutes, so I don't worry about the mess.
