Disclaimer: we still have a play kitchen and some Little People castles, and a wicker basket for stuffed animals, but otherwise here are the bins that I limit the toys to in our sunroom:
Current categories of bins: Dishes, Food, Little People, Magnetic Blocks, Balls, Figurines, Stackables.
Instead of filling all of the bins that this organizer/shelving unit came with, we decided to eliminate some bins (like more than half of them). Less to put away. My husband came up with the categories and labeled them (engineer that he is 🙂 ). The dishes bin is a bit out of control but most of the time a lot of those items go in the play kitchen so it’s not usually so overflowing. We have significantly decluttered play food and figurines over the years – really all of the categories.
What do you do to keep the toys ‘under control’? 😉
