Today I am talking about my kids closets. Now, I am just talking about the organizing part. I'd love to add a whole bunch more to this closet to make it even more functional - add it to my list. I mean who loves wire shelving? And there is some serious dead space in this closet that we could take advantage of. Someday . . . .
I chose the boys' closet because it has the most in it. Each of my girls get their own closet. The boys do have an armoire in their room. It stores shorts, pants, undies, and blankets. I labeled the picture so you can understand a bit how we do it. Baby J. is always between sizes so it seems like he has extra clothes. Collar shirts all the way to the lift, then short sleeve shirts, then long sleeve shirts. On the top is a bin that I throw clothes into when they have outgrown them. Every couple of months, I take the bin downstairs and decide what to save, what to donate, what to share . . .
G. is responsible for putting his clothes away every week. He does a pretty good job.
The other side of the closet holds Target Itso Cubes. We use to have a play room. Recently, it became my oldest daughter's rooms and some of the toys got divvied up between rooms and the basement. These are toys that the boys play with.
And by the looks of this picture, I need to get more diapers! I like to have them stockpiled and my pile is running low.
You will NEVER find an easy way to organize Legos here. I think I have given up (but I've said that before). Usually, the Lego bins are pulled out and on the floor. They go back in the closet when I say I'm going to vacuum the room. My husband assures me that it is a hopeless cause.
This is what our closets look like. They are functioning and totally work for us.
