I recently wrote a post here about children’s clothing needs. The next step in organising your children’s clothes is working out how best to store them. You need them to be organised, neat and easily accessible. Here are my tips on how to organise your children’s clothing.

1. Buy decent storage. Before you shop for wardrobes or drawers work out exactly what clothes you will be storing and the type of storage you will need. For example my boys need only drawers and cupboard space but my daughter also needs hanging space for her dresses. There are some storage ideas here.

2. Organise the clothing by type. So for example in my children’s wardrobes I have separate draw’s/shelves for:

  • Trousers.
  • T-shirts.
  • Long sleeved t-shirts.
  • Jumpers/sweatshirts.
  • Socks, vests and pants.
  • School uniform.
  • Dresses.
  • Pyjamas.

3. Rotate clothing according to season. In the winter I put away the shorts and t-shirts and in summer the thick sweaters go away.

4. Make the storage and system easy for the children to access and keep tidy. If things are up high provide a step stool. That way older children can choose clothes and dress themselves independently. They can also learn about keeping their own spaces and things tidy.

5. Have regular sort outs. Once every couple of months tidy the clothes. Also weed out anything out grown or worn out. That way things will stay neat and organised, and you will know when you need to buy more clothing.

So there you have it, my top tips for keeping your children’s clothing organised.
