Spring Cleaning Baby Gear Storage Tips – Earth Day Baby Blog #3

Are you constantly assaulted by toy mines waiting to attack your feet at any moment as you meander through your own home?

Veteran TP Bethany Baker has a patented storage system that will both protect your soles, and teach your children about organization and tidiness.

  1. Yes Pile, No Pile – First minimize by getting rid of anything you or your children don’t use or doesn’t bring you joy.
    • *Protip: If you are struggling to get rid of something for sentimental reasons take a picture of it. That way you can save it without it taking up any space.
  2. Sort it Out – Sort the stuff you’re keeping by item size so you know how much of each category and you can get the right sized container.
  3. Store it Well – Store smaller things in containers that stack securely on top of each other, or the green option: diaper boxes. They’re free and the boxes are smaller and easier to move around in storage.
  4. Clean it – It’s important to make sure everything is clean before you store it. We like Babyganics brand or similar organic cleaners for sanitizing toys and soft items.
  5. Have a System – Clear tubs you can see into without opening are great, but color coordinating categories with colored tubs is preferable for others.
  6. Document it – Label the tubs with a general category and then list the contents. For example, “Craft Supplies: paper, cutting utensils, adhesives, ribbon, stickers, popsicle sticks.”
