I mentioned a few weeks ago that Spring Cleaning is in full swing around here. I have been plugging away at all sorts of projects to organize, clean and purge and wanted to share a few of them with you. I have two little girls and with little girls comes lots of clothes.
Lots and lots of clothes. So this weekend the bedrooms were my main focus. I am really excited about a new system I am using to organize their clothes which I be will posting later this week.
When the youngest moves up a size I find myself digging through all sorts of boxes trying to find the right shoes and it is a big headache. Plus my girls get into the containers with old clothes and tend to drag everything out for little fashion shows.
So I wanted to wrestle the clothes and shoes into submission and out of reach of little fingers this weekend and here is what I came up with.
I have a Sterilite plastic tub that was $4.99 at Target. The size of the tub is about 11×17.
I used these storage bags from Ikea. It was $3.99 for a large box and we get these for storage purposes not for food. I had some leftover from a garage project awhile back- they are really thick and durable and slightly larger than a Ziploc bag.
I wrote the shoe sizes in a Sharpie on the front of the bag and I was able to get about 8 pairs of shoes in each bag. These were really small sizes so obviously I fit quite a few into each bag.
Then the bags sit flat on top of each other in the storage container. So about 22 pairs of shoes or so inside a little plastic container.
The tub pictured is baby shoes but I made a second tub with the larger size shoes that will be hand me downs for my youngest. Now everything is neatly stored away and easily accessible.
Does anyone else have tips for getting children’s clothing under control?
