Simple organizing solutions usually work best - and one way to make it easy to remember where to put things away is to label the containers.
But if you're dealing with young children, words won't help - pictures (often combined with words) work better. You can certainly create your own labels, but if you'd prefer to just buy some, you can head over to Etsy and get your dresser labels from ZBEEZ. There's a set for boys and one for girls. Update on Sept. 3, 2012: I'm no longer seeing this product at ZBEEZ.
Or you could get the Lil'Dressers Drawer Labels; you can read a review over on Natural Moms Talk Radio. Again, there are two versions: one for boys and one for girls. Update on Sept. 3, 2012: The company selling this product seems to have disappeared.
And Organize It Mom sells toy labels for whatever containers you use for the toys. [via Org Junkie's Product Reviews] Update on July 6, 2014: This product seems to have disappeared, too.
