You've never experienced real pain until you've stepped on LEGOs with your bare foot. It's a scientific fact that this is the most painful sensation of all time.

Okay, that's not true, but it's still pretty bad! Having spent hours babysitting my cousins and working as a substitute teacher, I've come to discover that the words "kids" and "organization" don't often go together. In most households with one or more children, the extent of organization is the pile system — one pile over there, two in that corner, 10 more in the little ones' bedrooms.

For first-time parents, maintaining an organization system in the child's playroom is key. Teaching kids to stay organized and clean up after themselves at an early age can have an amazing impact on their success in the future. Lucky for those parents who wish to improve upon the situation, here's a list of 22 awesome ways to help organize your children's toys while simultaneously minimizing stress.
