Organizing a child’s closet
Putting order in a child’s closet can be daunting, but not if you follow these professional tips:
“I like to divide by sizes and group them together,” said professional organizer Mylène Houle Morency. That way, as kids receive gifts of clothing for future use, rather than stuffing them in a drawer where you’re likely to forget them, they’re at your fingertips instead.
Use dividers inside dresser drawers to keep undergarments, socks, and other items of clothing separated.
“Rolling up clothes, instead of folding them, is the biggest saving grace,” Morency said. “Instead of ( creating) a stack where they go digging for that Elmo shirt and undo all the folding that you did, roll their clothes and place them logo- side up.” Roll tops and bottoms of pyjamas together, too.
Have a section for hanging current clothes, a bin with things they’re about to grow into, and a bin for things that they’ve outgrown. “Label that bin with the size or ( intended) age of its contents,” said organizer Allison Weigensberg. As your child outgrows something, simply put it in the appropriate bin, and when it’s full, you can store it or give its contents away.
