How to Organize Your Kid’s Closet!

1 Nov

Wow – this article from Parents.Com is like a parent’s dream come true…at least for me!  It is chock full of great tips on how to organize a child’s closet for the child, and best of all, the items they suggest using are reasonably priced!  The only challenge is if the closet cannot be configured/set up this way, but you can still make some of these great tips work for you!

Some of my personal favorite tips from this article are ‘Maximizing Space’ via a 3 shelf organizer with canvas shelf bins – great for underwear, socks, etc.  as my 5-year-old doesn’t have a real dresser of her own and we have been using canvas bins on a shelf for these items.  The “Sort the Wash” laundry hamper also geta  big thumbs up from me!  Makes doing the laundry easier and gives your child some more simple organizational responsibility!  I also love the ‘Days of the Week Closet Organizer’, where my daughter can just open her closet and change into her clothes for school each day!

Do you have any tips and tricks to share?  Please leave a comment to do so🙂
