1. Hanging Organizer Inside the Wardrobe

Little pieces of children's socks and underwear usually cause some headaches since it is hard to organize them neatly for easy-finding when we want to choose a matching piece next time. We can easily lose them too. Now comes this hanging organizer with many pockets made especially to store apparels, accessories and under garments. 

Spend some time in sourcing organizers of right color and shape and your wardrobe can become an art to look at too.

Out of the similar concept, this type of organizers makes storage easier by allowing different items stay in different pockets. We can hang them on the wall or the door and store kids' stationaries, flash cards, etc. When we want to look for something, just take a peek into each pocket and we won't miss it. 

It is also great time to teach kids to categorize items and put them into right pockets!

The hanging organizer below is made of fabrics. You can find organizers made of transparent plastics too. If you are starting kids to learn objects or letters, it is good idea to put each learning card into different transparent pockets which now becomes learning board.


3. Storage Shelf for Kid's Books

Another idea to de-clutter your kids' stuff while taking up no space is to attach shelves on the wall. If you are a minimalist, simply fixing some planks on the wall and you are good to keep books and your kids' mini-car collections. If you have spare basckets or plant pots, just re-use them for kids storage by hanging them on the wall. With some decoration, they can make your home more orderly and better-looking.

4. Storage Frame for Your Child's Belongings

If your house still has space for extra cabinets, consider DIY storage frames designed by Ikea for kids. As what we would expect from Ikea, they are light, simple, yet functional and they embrace great flexibility for you to decide on the number, size and color of storage box on the frame. 

Time to get imaginative now. Buy larger boxes to store larger toys and equipments and smaller ones for children's books and legos. You can have a whole shelf white or create a rainbow in your house.

You can also store heavier stuff like gardening tools and toys thanks to the sturdiness of the stool.

Last not never the least, you may have kids stuff that clutters your home space but has no frequent use. You may want to engage valet storage service where you can de-clutter your house totally and collect items whenever you want with one tap on your phone. Sleek!
