Organise Your Kids Wardrobe in 5 Simple Steps

Organise Your Kids Wardrobe in 5 Simple Steps

We’ve all been there: stepping into your child’s room only to be met with a waterfall of clothes and toys cascading from the wardrobe.

But fear not! Here we’ll explore five simple steps to conquer your kids wardrobe –  from a chaotic mess into a well-organised space. Just follow these five essential steps.

1. Assess and Sort:

Understanding the scope of the mess is the first step to bringing order back to childrens wardrobes. If it all feels a bit overwhelming, then think about how those daily stresses like finding matching socks when you’re running late for school will be a thing of the past.

2. Gather Supplies:

Now it’s time to equip yourself with the necessary supplies to tackle this mission effectively. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Get hangers and hooks. Start with a good supply of hangers and get hooks for items like backpacks and hats.
  • Invest in storage baskets and bins. Choose different sizes to help categorise items, like shoes, toys and accessories.
  • Use labels and markers. Make it clear where everything belongs and use washable markers to enable items to be relabelled over time.
  • Consider space-saving accessories like cascading hangers and hanging shoe organisers
  • Don’t forget cleaning supplies!

3. Declutter and Categorize:

Now it’s time to roll up your sleeves and tackle the clutter in your kids wardrobe. Decluttering is a crucial step in creating an organised and functional space. Here’s how to do it like a pro:

  • Sort items into Keep, Donate, Repair/Alter, Bin.
  • Involve your child. Encourage them to help decide which clothes to keep and which to donate. This not only empowers them but also teaches them about the importance of giving to others.
  • Take it one step at a time. It can be overwhelming so go easy on yourself.
  • Celebrate small victories. Getting that drawer of clutter sorted is a win!

4. Organise and Label:

With the decluttering complete, it’s time to organise what’s left.

  • Categorise clothes and accessories. You can sort by type (e.g., tops, bottoms) or frequency of use (daily wear, occasional wear) to suit your child’s needs.
  • Manage seasonal items. Set aside out-of-season clothing to be stored separately. Vacuum-sealed bags are great for preserving and saving space for these items until they’re needed again.
  • Keep only what’s worn and loved. Ensure that only items your child currently wears and loves make it into the “keep” pile. These are the clothes that belong in the wardrobe, easily accessible for daily wear.

5. Maintain and Involve:

Once your child’s wardrobe is neat and organised, keeping it that way is the next challenge. These are our top tips to keep on top of the clutter:

  • Quick daily checks to prevent pile ups. Little and often is the mantra!
  • Involve your child so they’re taking responsibility for their belongings.
  • Be ready for adjustments as they grow. Nothing stays the same for long, so be prepared to evolve your organisation as needs change.

Transforming childrens wardrobes into a organised and functional spaces reduces stress and teaches valuable life skills. Start today for a stress-free daily routine for both you and your child. Good luck!
