Does this month’s One-Year Declutter Challenge have you seeing double!? That’s not an uh-oh that our Challenge Printable has Kid’s Closets listed twice. I intentionally wanted to tackle these spaces two times a year for multiple reasons. The biggest one being that these little turkeys grow like weeds. Can I get an Amen from the Choir!? Before we are even settled into one size, it’s a new season and a new size we are entering into. To avoid the overwhelm of clothing, I go through their closets two times a year and flip it. Anything that’s outgrown, I’ll pile up to consign. You can read all about how I get rid of kid’s clothes with OYDC Part I. Today, I wanted to provide you with seven kid’s closet organization hacks to help you tame their chaos.
Before I get into the nitty-gritty of this concept, let me recap my monthly One Year Declutter Challenge. See, I crave a decluttered home, but I also have two kids that make those nice and cozy 30 day challenges unrealistic. So I’ve created a declutter challenge that you can do at your own pace. There will be one prompt each month, giving you 30 days to work at your own speed. Grab your Free Declutter Printable and jump in with us.
7 Brilliant Kid’s Closet Organization Hacks
I love using cubbies for kid’s closets. With all the small shoes, bows, hats, pants, etc, cubbies are perfect for storing those small items that wouldn’t fill up a regular size drawer.
For those of you with kids under two especially, this is a must-have in their closets. I usually keep the next size up on hand and need somewhere to store them. These little collapsable boxes are great for this. After this stage in life, they are perfect for collecting school art.
3 | Hanger Tags
I love using custom hanging tags to organize a closet. These are not only perfect for those back to school days with your older kids but are also great for organizing all the different size infant clothes. You can check out Etsy for a ton of customizable hanger tags.
4 | Closet Bookcase
I love this idea from Craving Some Creativity to use the inside of a closet door for book storage. We have more books than we can count, so book storage is always a tricky task.
I love how Lovely Etc built lower shelving units for her sons. These are easily accessible to the little guys. They are great for those just learning some responsibility in caring for their clothes and getting dressed.
6 | Toy Storage
If you’re lucky enough to have two closets, making one into a toy closet is pure genius. If you aren’t so lucky, here are some good tricks to incorporate into any regular closet to hide and conceal those mounds of toys.
Using a Hanging Closet Shelf to create Monday thru Friday Organization bins is a great way to have your little helper get dressed each day without the worry of matching outfits.
I hope these seven kid’s closet organization hacks help bring some function to your kid’s chaos. It doesn’t take long for their closets to return to a form of discombobulation. Setting aside two months a year to tidy up these spots will help keep you sane and on top of the endless rotation of clothes, toys and accessories.
