Tips to keep your child's toys organized

Cleaning up a young child's room can be both time consuming and tedious.

"I have to clean up probably three to four times a day. Put the LEGOs back in the LEGOs box. Put the blocks back in the block bag," said Lisa Galinson-Treitman who is the mother of a four-year-old.

A better option might be to purchase the Box4Blox. This tiered box sorts blocks by size. That means your child won't have to dump out every piece to find the right one. For stuffed animals, Good Housekeeping suggests the Boon Oval Animal Bag.

"The Boon Animal Bag is so great because you can stash all of the extra stuffed animals inside and then it doubles as seating," said Amy Roberts of Good Housekeeping.

If you still have too many toys lying around, it may be time to donate the old ones. Both charities and your family friends would be happy to get them.

"You want to make sure that the toys are clean and in working order," said Roberts.

If not, recycle the toys by going to: Earth911.com.

Before donating old toys, it's a good idea to make sure they haven't been recalled.
