When your child outgrows outfits put them in the bin and when the bin is filled up bring the bin to its storage spot. This is also a great solution for maternity clothing
HAVE LESS – Frustrated by too many choices and lots of laundry? Pare down what you and your family members have be deciding what you really need and are actually wearing. Go through closets and donate or toss outgrown and worn out clothing. Once you’ve purged clothing that is obviously not worth holding onto, determine what you haven’t worn in 6 months and and donate or toss those items. Not sure if you should keep something? Turn the hanger around – if you or a family member doesn’t wear the clothing in a month or two, find a new home for it.
GROUP CLOTHING – Clothing is easier to find when it’s grouped with like articles of clothing – long sleeved shirts together, short sleeved shirts together, pants together, etc. Put clothing in its proper spot every time and you’ll always be able to locate that favorite article of clothing in minutes.
COMPARTMENTS – Add small baskets and bins to drawers to keep socks, undies, t-shirts and other items separated and easy to find. Separate them into different space and give each of them a purpose.
