Organize 365 Podcast
127 - Organizing Boys - Collections

In the podcast, I talk about the different ways boys use their bedrooms and create collections. The key to an organized boy’s room is to buy specific organizers for each kind of collection they have.

Around the age of 7, a boy will have 3-5 collections/toys that he likes to play with. By the age of 12, most of the “toys” will be gone. Here are organizational solutions for the most common collections. {We will cover sports in a separate post/podcast.}


In general, a cube-type shelving system will work in a boy’s bedroom and grow with him through young adulthood.

When purchasing a cube system, make sure the cubes are 12 inches square or more. Here are some options from Amazon. {Note that these are my affiliate links.}
