Keep your kids bedrooms tidy and clutter free with these 10 super-easy organisation hacks.

We all know how difficult it can be to keep our kids’ bedrooms tidy and clutter free (hand’s up if you can’t even see the floor sometimes?!) And when you’re short on space to store everything, the craft supplies, stuffed toys and teeny-tiny Barbie shoes often seem like they could take over the world.  

To help you rediscover that bedroom floor once more, here are some super-easy DIY projects that will keep your kids’ bedrooms organised and save those stubbed toes!

Does your little one love to dress up? Does their bedroom floor resemble the dressing room of a Christmas pantomime? Or maybe they have a collection of dress-up costumes stuffed into a drawer, making it difficult to find those very special bumblebee wings? Here’s a great idea to turn an old dresser into a mini costume cupboard for every little drama queen to enjoy. Image credit: A Turtles Life For Me
