We all know how hard it is to resist those snapping up those super cute stuffed animals, especially since they make such great cuddle buddies! However, when your kid's stuffed animal kingdom starts to get a little too wild, it may be time to find a special place for all of those plush pals. The first step in tackling the lion's share of stuffed animals is to weed through the ones that are now extinct recommends Tracy McCubbin, founder dClutterfly and author of Making Space, Clutter Free: The Last Book on Decluttering You'll Ever Need.
"The perfect plan for keeping stuffed animals organized is to purge them! It sounds like a daunting task, but you'd be surprised how many your child will let go of if you take the time to ask, 'how long has it been since you've played with this one?'" notes McCubbin.
"When it comes to corralling the stuffed animals your kid truly wants to keep, I'm a huge fan of baskets. Baskets are lightweight and easy to move around, making cleanup time much more manageable. Just be sure not to get baskets that are bigger than your child!" she says. Once you've decided which animals to donate and which ones to declutter, it's time to get them organized. We've rounded up several creative storage solutions to give your kiddo's sweet stuffies a special home.
