Kids’ Closet Organization

 

Kids’ Closet Organization

My biggest housekeeping downfall and most despised chore is laundry. I hate putting it up. Especially the girls’ laundry. Their closet was out of control. They had too many clothes. It was impossible to find a matching outfit. Jeans were crammed in a drawer. Skirts and leggings were falling off shelves. Hair bows and headbands were all over the house. Shoes were piled in baskets and 50% didn’t even fit. I had to get it under control.

I started by removing EVERYTHING from their closet and gathered my supplies.

Supplies:

  1. Baskets. We had THESETarget also has them in WHITE.
  2. Tension Rod
  3. Command Hooks
  4. Command Strips
  5. S Shower Curtain Hooks 
  6. Curtain Rod(s)
  7. Ribbon
  8. 6 Cube Organizer
  9. Shoe Cube Organizer
  10. Round Laundry Baskets
  11. Bow Boards (we made ours)

 

I wanted all of their clothes hung up as an outfit. This took FOREVER, but it has been worth it. The only clothes that aren’t in outfits are in their play clothes drawer. For the play clothes, each girl has: 2 pants, 2 short sleeve shirts, 2 long sleeve shirts and 2 shorts. I wanted to keep this minimal.

 

Next I tackled the shoes. I assembled and installed a 6 cube organizer with a shoe cube organizer on top. Boots in the bottom and shoes on top. My girls have a lot of boots. Farm life.

 

Then I took the 1,000 (slight exaggeration) pairs of shoes that didn’t fit any of the girls. I labeled the pink baskets with size ranges and stored them on the top shelf.

 

On to hair bows and headbands. The girls have tons. I started by attaching the two bow boards that we had with command strips to the wall. Below them, I attached curtain rods to the wall with command hooks. I also hung a ribbon on the back of their closet door and put a tension rod on one wall for hard headbands. S shower hooks were used to hang the soft headbands on the curtain rods.

 

 

Most of our too small clothes are in storage bins in the attic. Occasionally a few are missed, a kid grows out of something quickly, I buy bigger things on sale, etc. For this, I purchased four round laundry baskets. I labeled them with the sizes that the girls are not currently wearing and put them on the top shelf.

 

I’m really happy with how their closet turned out. Getting ready in the morning is now easy and drama free!

    That headband storage is genius! I’ll be adding that to my project list for my daughter’s room.
