We were just on vacation and flew with Atlas for the first time and we are happy to report that all was successful so thank you for all your helpful advice on FaceBook and Twitter. We were only gone for a week, but believe it or not, Atlas grew out of multiple items of clothing in that short time. It seems I’m cleaning out his drawers and closets on a weekly basis because my monster child is growing twice as fast as any other baby his age it seems. He just turned 6 months and we are already on to 18 month clothing. I needed a better solution for organizing his clothes, so I was very excited when Home Depot and Rubbermaid asked us to try out their new “All Access Organizers”. Basically I was stacking boxes on top of each other and dividing the old clothes into donate, giveaway, and keep piles. The boxes only open on top and I kept forgetting what was inside. This took a lot of time.
In just a couple hours I created a whole new system that takes up a lot less space and saves me those precious minutes each week. Welcome the genius, open in front, see-through in front, stackable solution. I was able to do such a thorough job that the two bins i thought I would need for clothing turned into one bin for Christmas gifts and one bin for future clothing.
Though these bins open on top I chose to easily stack them on top of each other and use the see-through window in a way that I can view all the clothing at one in one bin. In the other bin, I put smaller toys and treats towards the front opening so I could snag something special fro Atlas before Christmas because I tend to want to treat him more often than not. Basically if you have an hour or two – do it. Gram some good organizers and make a simple system – and you will save so much time and your future self will be happy!
Here are some tips to organize your growing child’s closet.
- Get some baby/kid hangers and divide into like groups (we divided onesies, pants, t-shirts/sweaters, and PJs
- Buy All Access bins and stack below clothing and keep plenty of onesies, pant’s and pajamas on hand for those times they seems to grow overnight.
- Many people have been successful using dividers with sizing on them, we may give that a shot soon.
- Laying out all their shoes on a self instead of the floor is an easy and quick way to keep them organized and clean.
- Make sure to have good lighting in your kid’s closet so you can keep it clean easier. If it’s not hard wired, “touch lights” are easy to find and won’t break the bank.
- Keeping a mini iron an ironing board will encourage you to iron out any wrinkly pieces of clothing.
