Living in 1,200 square feet with a husband, two cats, two beagles, and a toddler has been an adventure. We sure love it, but it makes some things more challenging for us than families in larger homes (with playrooms and extra space). We needed toy storage ideas for small homes stat, once my son grew from infant to toddler and came with eight million items.

Honestly, I feel like our home still isn’t even that small compared to other families, but when it comes to clutter, we definitely notice if my son’s toys aren’t tucked away — because when stuff is everywhere, it drives me absolutely insane.

Organization expert Marty Basher tells Romper that a big thing that can help with toy clutter is to follow a “less-is-more” approach. “In fact, downsizing toys not only prevents overstimulation, but also fosters the appreciation of quantity over quality,” Basher says. “Toys should be seen as tools to promote creativity, imagination, and problem solving skills. Too often parents confuse flashy, trendy toys as a means to entertain their children.

'Always choose quality over quantity when it comes to picking out toys for children, and keep in mind the power of learning through play — for the sake of your child's development and clutter control in your house,' he says.

Ryan Youngberg, dad and co-founder of parenting website Baby’s Journey tells Romper that babies will usually do well with three to five of their favorite “teethers, taggies, or small plush toys.” He says to not go crazy buying a ton of toys for your baby because you’ll be packing them away for the next baby should you choose to have one. But he says toddlers are more in the 25 to 50 toys range since their attention span is so short. Youngberg recommends a mix of engaging and education toys to stimulate their minds, like alphabet blocks or toys with numbers. “They’ll love interactive toys that light up and talk or sing to them the most.”

The blogger behind Reduce, Reuse, Renew, Laura Durenberger, tells Romper that her family created a “one item in, one item out” rule for their household. “When it comes to kids, there isn't usually a shortage of toys coming in, especially for birthdays and holidays — this keeps the ‘clutter creep’ at bay,” she says.

If you’re already drowning in a mountain of toys even after a purge, you can either hide them in an attic or basement to rotate out every few weeks, or you can use any of the below products to help you organize all those toys within your small space.

RV Storage Facility in the Orlando Area

Traveling in an RV gives you all the freedom of a road trip within the comforts of a small, personal slice of home. It’s the ultimate tiny-living space! The smaller area, however, requires a more efficient organization than you’d need in a full-sized house or apartment. Following these tips and tricks will help you maximize the utility of every wall and corner so you can fit any supplies or amenities you can think of for your next RV adventure.

Hooks

When you’re hurting for storage space, any empty surface becomes a place to put things. Command hooks are a great way to hang things on your big, blank walls without having to worry about nails or screws. Put some above your kitchen sink or dining area to hang cooking utensils or light pots and pans. They also work well as hand towel hangers in the bathroom.

Hang two hooks across from one another and place the ends of saran wrap or aluminum foil rolls onto the hooks to create a convenient food wrapping station.

Some metal hooks fold away when not in use, making them perfect for drying a wet towel or hanging up a coat only when needed.

Doors and Cabinets

Doors and cabinets are also highly underutilized spaces. Traditional trash cans can take up a lot of valuable floor space in your RV kitchen. Solve this dilemma by putting a small over-the-cabinet trash can underneath your sinks for easy access.

The same hooks that you put on walls can be put on the inside of kitchen and bathroom cabinets to store even more small utensils or toiletries.

Space saving shelving

You can create or buy bags and caddies that fit up against a variety of door types to hold extra knick-knacks such as shoes and other supplies.

Drawers and Shelves

Slide out drawers are a great way to discretely create some extra storage space. If you plan on doing any serious renovations to your RV in the near future you can create storage seating benches or add drawers under table surfaces to create impromptu desk spaces. Plastic slide-out drawers can also be purchased as a more cost-effective option.

If you still have wall or ceiling space you haven’t used up, consider hanging wire or cloth shelves to add even more room for storage.
