Color Code Everything! Shop 17 Containers to House the Rainbow

If you’re even the slightest bit interested in home organization, then I’d bet my bottom dollar you’ve heard of The Home Edit. Home organizing gurus and authors Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin of The Home Edit have risen in popularity for their functional yet super stylish approach to sorting through everything and anything in your home.

It’s safe to say I’m pretty obsessed. 

One of their signature touches is to separate and display items by color, and when it comes to children’s stuff, this approach is life-changing. Not only is it a fun way for your little ones to learn their colors, but it’s super easy to include them in tidying up too. I did this with my son’s bookcase months ago, and he loves putting away all the red books and picking out a yellow book, etc. It’s been easy to maintain as well!

On board and ready to begin?

Think clear stacking boxes, easy to access baskets, and larger storage items with multiple spaces to contain every little play piece. Here are some of our favorites.

Note: Many of these products are available in a variety of sizes to fit you and your kiddo’s needs.
