Our growing boy has growing number of toys too. Everywhere here at home has toys around, some are neatly kept in their respective bins but most are out for him to play with. It's unavoidable to have some mess from time to time most especially when baby's in the mood to grab his toys and drag all over our place. Sometimes he gets too excited too scribbling on his table and he'll put out all his markers and crayons. Depending on his mood whether he'll tidy up everything back to where he got his things or leave it for mommy to pick up.
I can be proud to say that baby's not that messy anymore, I think him seeing me organize things right after he thrashes the place around gives him a sense of order. I also try to ask him to keep away all his things after using it or at least make him to put something back where it should be. It's important to give early training to growing babies so they can instill it in their mind and learn things. Having specific lockers for kids is one great way to teach our boy to keep his things in place.
Since we don't have a walk-in closet here in our apartment making use of extra kids lockers come very handy. Actually even just drawers and other bins help a lot in keeping our place a bit more organized. Not having so extra space is quite a compromise when you have a kid but you can always find ways on how to make things work. Just like in our bathroom, even there has baby's toys. Since there's no way you can fit in any childrens lockers there we had to get some bath tub caddy to keep his toys organized and not always spilled all over the tub. Perhaps you can already picture out how baby has taken over every space we have here at home.
