12 stylish storage solutions for all your kids’ toys + books

One cool thing about starting a new year is the newfound energy to declutter all the things. We know we're not alone with our urges to redecorate and restyle our entire home. Now is the perfect time to find places for all your kids' toys and books.

Honestly, why didn't anyone tell us that along with having kids, you'd also acquire SO. MUCH. STUFF?! Tackling your kids' clutter is no easy feat. That's why we're big fans of toy minimalism whenever possible, but sometimes you just need a place to hide the blocks and all of those teeny, tiny figurines.

We hear you. Here are 12 of our favorite stylish storage solutions to help you get organized in no time, mama:
