Staying organized in 2012 can start with a child's toy chest. If you want to get organized this year, see how this simple step can help.

You're in good company if your New Year's resolution includes getting your house organized and in order. People all over the world like to take advantage of the new beginnings that a new year brings to make changes in their lives. If you have children,Guest Posting one of the easiest ways to get organized is to purchase  a child's toy chest. Parents and children alike can use a kid's toy box as a storage chest to tuck away toys, dress up clothes and stuffed animals.

Convincing Kids to Help Clean

Getting kids to help clean up their own toys is the first step towards a clean and organized home. Instead of fighting with your kids to get them to pick up their toys and put them away, make it a game! Set the timer and have a contest to see which family members can clean their assigned rooms the fastest. Whether you're separating into kids vs. parents or boys vs. girls, making it a fun contest can be a great incentive. If you need a prize for the winning team, consider letting the winners choose which movie to watch for family movie night, or which board game to play that evening.

If you're looking to keep the mess contained in the first place, make a rule about the number of toys that can be out of the storage chest at once. By limiting the mess, you'll have less to clean up at the end of the day.

Finding a Child's Toy Chest for the Living Room

If you have a smaller home, storage space is probably an incredibly important tool used to keep toys and other clutter at bay. If you're looking for a storage chest that looks like it belongs as a part of your living room decor, look for a box that matches your existing decorating scheme. If you have a modern and sleek living room, look for one that's made out of eco-friendly bamboo. If your living space is casual and comfy, consider the classic look of oak chests. Other common finishes are espresso and cherry, which means that you'll likely be able to find a kid's toy box that fits seamlessly into your room's decor.

Whimsical Designs for Bedrooms or Playrooms

If you're looking for classic styling, but a more whimsical design, consider a child's toy chest in a traditional wood color, but personalized with a laser engraved name or other thoughtful details. Other options include full color hand-painted chests with themes like sports, safari animals, butterflies, flowers, fire trucks and more. Parents can even find matching tables and chairs, bookcases and rocking chairs that help them create a cohesive, organized look in just a few minutes.

Whether you're looking for a kid's toy box for your living room or one that will be out on display for the entire family to use, getting the right storage chest will go a long way towards helping families get organized and stay organized in 2012.
