Every few months, I quickly sort through the toys. If items are broken or missing pieces or haven't been played with in a while, I either throw or give them away. To corral the rest, buy stylish bins. Some are from the Target dollar section (costing only $2.50), others look like a locker. The bins that are visible are always metal and usually a poppy color for a dose of fun. We keep other toys in plastic bins tucked away in our entertainment center behind cabinet doors. Bookshelves are also a great place to store toys and a lot of IKEA shelves work well with doors, so pretty items can be displayed above while keeping the clutter close by, but out of sight. And, we're not afraid to store bulky items under the bed.
