Recently, I had the opportunity to help a client with a few organizing projects around her house. The first place that she needed guidance with was how to organize a closet, more specifically her kid’s closets. Her little ones are 5 and 2, so there were lots of clothes that had been outgrown, as well as lots of clothes to grow into. This is something we see quite often in kid closets, especially when the families have a great group of friends who all pass hand-me-downs around. It saves tons of money on clothes and shoes, but it can become a storage nightmare if it isn’t set up in an organized way. That’s what was happening with these closets.
With just a few modifications, and a little bit of time, we were able to create some better systems for storage and much tidier closets! Here’s what we did in her son, Logan’s super-hero themed closet:
How to Organize a Closet for Kids
After a lot of sorting of clothes, we were able to get everything that was Logan’s current size hung up. Anything that was too big was put into a Too BIG box. (This box has a lid so things don’t get dusty while waiting to be grown in to)
Then, bins were created to go on the shelf to hold extra bedding and Too Small clothes. These are open top bins so clothes can easily be tossed in when Mom discovers they don’t fit anymore, or the bedding can be pulled out easily.
All-in-all, the closet turned out great. Even Logan loved the new look.
Keep watching for more projects like this!
