Thankyou to all the wonderful readers sending in requests and questions regarding back to school. I am going to extend the Back to School Organising series for an extra week to try and answer all your questions. Please feel free to email me if you are wanting any specific back to school tips.
Today, I will show you how I store my kids clothes. We have had this system in place now for a year and I wish I had it sooner. Prior I was storing the kids clothes such as undies, shorts, Pj’s, t-shirts in their dresser drawers. Once the kids started dressing themselves this system didn’t work well, it was hard for the kids to easily see what was at the bottom of the pile and I was forever constantly tidying it up. I did consider installing shelves, which would be ideal, however in the mean time this has been a great solution.
I purchased this hanging organiser which you can find them at most department and dollar stores. It is brilliant giving the kids a glance at what clothes they have to wear. I keep clothing sets together on skirt/trouser hangers.
I have a section for each type of clothing, giving easy access.
Underneath the hanging organiser I have 2 baskets holding socks and swimmers. You will notice that I don’t put socks into pairs. These are new school socks, which are white, therefore eliminating the need to pair up as they all match each other. Saves alot of time when folding laundry.
On this side of the cupboard hangs t-shirts and school uniforms (I have removed uniforms for privacy reasons).
This clothes basket was left over after I placed new storage in our laundry, so I repurposed it, using it as toy storage.
I hope this helps with your kids wardrobe organisation
