By Aimee Heckel
The worst part of the holidays is the post-holiday reality check.
When you set up the tree and all those lights and wrapped all of those Littlest Pet Shop toys, you were fueled by anticipation and excitement. Now that you have to take them all down and put everything away, all that you have left is a lack of energy and dread.
Instead of letting your kids’ new toys take over your house and overwhelm you, here are three great products to help you organize it all. Who knows? Maybe these items can help rekindle the last ember of energy to help you wrap up the holidays on a high note.
1. Cute storage bins from Diapers.com, $31.99 for three.
At just about $10 per sturdy, canvas bin, that’s a pretty good deal — for a product that not only will help sort your kids’ toys, but also add decoration to their room. Pick your favorite theme: foxes, elephants, hippos, monkeys, owls, raccoons, squirrels, camels, bears, dinosaurs, zebras — you name it.
Use these for laundry, shoes, socks, small toys, Legos, blocks or even books.

2. Functional storage furniture.
This adorable, striped Minnie Mouse couch doubles up as comfortably furniture and a hidden storage compartment for your kids’ blankets, pillows, stuffed animals or other goodies. Find it at Target.com for $89.99.
3. A bean bag cover for creative storage.
This is one of our favorite tricks for storing those 19,000 stuffed animals that flood your kids’ closet. Buy a bean bag cover — but forfeit the bean bag insides. Stuff the cover with all of your kids’ soft stuffed animals and voila, they have a bean bag to sit on, and an enclosed place to stash their animals and keep them out of your way.
Find endless types of bean bag covers to match your kids’ room, from pink to princess to football to Disney. Best of all, bean bag covers aren’t too expensive — cheaper than buying an actual bean bag, but with double the function.
