If you’re a reader like me, chances are there are piles of kids books in your house too! While that is great, sometimes the sheer number of books hanging around can get really overwhelming. Our bookcases are only so big which means that book real estate is limited and I quickly had to figure out a better way to organise things so that I wouldn’t have to get rid of any books and the ones that are out are actually getting read. I’ve shared a few of my favorite kids books so you can check that out!
I came up with a little system of organizing seasonal kids books in our house and shared it on my personal Facebook page and it got a positive response so I thought it was something that my readers here would be interested in and would benefit from too. I know that you guys are always looking for new ways to organize your homes and this was just too good to keep all to myself.
So you probably decorate your home in some way for the various seasons or holidays. We definitely do and it’s something that I enjoy doing! I have at least 1 big tote of home decor for each season. I have more than 1 for Christmas and Halloween of course since they are big decor wise but you get the idea. The point is, you swap out your home decor seasonally so why not swap out all those kids books too? Brilliant, right?!
What I do when organizing our seasonal kids books is pack them away after the holiday is over along with the rest of the decor in the same tote or box. That way you aren’t overrun by Christmas books in June or Halloween books in January. It also means you don’t have to buy a bunch of new books each season since these ones will seem brand new when they are brought out again the next year. Before packing them away I do make sure to get rid of any that are torn apart or are now too young for my children. That way I don’t feel so bad about picking up a few new ones when I see something that I just can’t resist! I am human after all.
Does this sounds like something that would work in your home too? Do you have any brilliant organizational ideas that I should know about?
