how to get my kids more organized at home

Organized is a pretty general term.
One thing I thought was brilliant: my brother and sister in law were lucky enough to have the first grandbaby, so they got SO many toys from every person they know.
It got to a point where the poor child was overstimulated in her bedroom and was getting overwhelmed with everything she had.
So, they bought a bunch of mid-sized clear bins. They are roughly a foot by a foot and organized all her stuff into different categories. She has animal toys in one, kitchen toys in another, etc etc. She has about 7 of these boxes. The rule is: She can only have one bin out at a time. This keeps her consistently picking up her toys after she is done playing with them, keeps the mess down, and allows her to be a bit calmer and less frustrated in her bedroom. She is 3 yrs old. It was working great soon after they introduced it.
