It seems as if my children’s clothes keep multiplying by the minute. So this is how I keep them organized. I use bins to store clothes that they have already outgrown or that they cannot yet fit into.
This is the method I have been using since my first baby. The tubs cost about $4.97 each at Walmart/Target.
To save me from having a million tubs in the closet, I organized a few different clothing sizes in each bin. For example, my 1st daughter received a bunch of 18 – 24 months and 24 months clothing when she was born. I knew it would be a while before she would wear them so I separated them into one bin – 24 months folded at the bottom and then 18 -24 months untop of the others. I usually use a small blanket to separate the different sizes.
When she outgrew her baby clothes newborn, 0-3, 3-6, etc. I did the same thing. So at the bottom of a bin/tub I put 3-6, then laid a blanket. At the top of the blanket I put newborn and 0-3. Then in another bin, 3-6 and 6-9.
Then 9 months, 12-18, etc. Now I knew exactly where to find them when my second daughter was born.
Also, I used 1 or 2 bins just for pajamas (by sizes) and the same for sweaters and snow suits, if you live in cold areas. For the cute little shoes, I simply dumped them all in 1 bin.
My kids have a lot of clothes, but if yours have way too much, you may just need to make separate bins for separate sizes.
Save the clothing for another kid to be born or sell/donate them if you have too much.
What is your method for storing and organizing kids clothing?
