If you're living with a lot of little ones, or even just one or two, keeping your home from turning into a disaster area may seem near-impossible. The key to keeping things from getting too crazy (and keeping your cool, too) is getting your kids involved with taking care of their home from a young age. From our video archives, here are some of our best tips for helping your kids stay organized.

In this video, professional organizer Jeni Aron shares her best tips for encouraging kids to get involved with putting things away. If cleaning up is fun, they'll be that much more likely to do it.

I love this tip for using wine crates as toy storage. With labels on the front that clearly mark each crate, it's easy to put things away, but also easy to find toys when you're ready to play with them again.

And finally, a sweet video from a kid's perspective — and a sweet reminder not to sweat the small stuff. As long as you can find the things you need, it's okay if your home is not perfect.

Thanks for watching, and happy organizing!
