And oh the toys they get from family, friends, mom and dad (ahem), and from gosh knows where else. To keep the clutter at bay, I’ve rounded up DIY kids toys storage ideas to help keep organizing toys on a budget.

Stuffed animal storage
A 2-for-1 special by storing animals in a bean bag chair lining that your child can use as a seat or pillow that’s perfect for the playroom. (via Come Together Kids)
Shelf with pull-out drawers
If you live in a small house like I do, then designating a shelf for your kids toys is a practical solution. I also like the use of chalkboard labels, which are easy to change when toys are switched out as they get bored or older. (via Shanty to Chic)
See-through plastic containers with lids are an easy way to contain scraps of crafting supplies. The foam letter labels are also a practical yet decorative way to make these boxes look more fun. (via The Organized Mama)
How clever is this wall display? Magnetic strips are surely easy for your kids to put the cars away after they’re done playing with them. (via Keeping Up with the Souths)
I’m all about maximizing space, so the sliver behind the door is one of my favorite storage areas. Use a hanging shoe organizer to store dolls and their accessories. (via A Girl and a Glue Gun)
You know what I love more than these hanging wall buckets? The fact that they’re labeled by type of lego. I tried the idea to sort by color, which lasted only 0.002 seconds in my house. (via B Inspired Mama)
Costumes and dress up clothes
Two words: command hooks. So easy to rearrange if your kid prefers more hats or full-body costumes. And so much simpler for kids to hang them up on than full-on hangers. Just saying from experience. (via Happy Brown House)
Use wall space in the family room to set up this cute art gallery. Your kids can switch out their favorite pieces to show on display as often as they like with these easy clips. (via Where the Smiles Have Been)
Toy storage bench
A fun IKEA hack using a bookshelf on its side as storage, and adding a no-sew cushion on top to create a toy storage furniture and chest in one. (via Mommy Vignettes)
Garage for toy cars
My son has a few of these that take up quite a bit of space outside. I like having them in their own area, and covered so I don’t have to worry about the sun cracking the plastic. (via Mom Endeavors)
Outdoor toy storage
It’s definitely a good idea to keep outdoor toys outside instead of trekking dirt and more mess into the home. I like how things are kept simple with buckets for categories of toys. (via Domestic Charm)
