Clothes and Shoes
A big pile of clothes on the floor, some clean, some dirty, some that don’t even fit. Shoes in an unorganized jumble making finding a matching pair almost impossible. Sound familiar? Keeping kids clothes and shoes organized is difficult, especially considering how quickly they outgrow things. Here are some tricks to help. Make getting little kids dressed easier with this idea from The Boy’s Store Blog. Use a plastic chest of drawers labeled Monday through Friday and on the weekend lay out an outfit for each day. Stay on top of outgrown clothes with a bin designated for too small clothes, so that they don’t end up on the floor, or, put back in the closet again and again.
Instead of one big toy box where things can get lost or broken, opt for a cube organizer instead. You can display favorite toys and stuffed animals on the shelves, and hide the clutter with colorful cubes. Go one step further by labeling the cubes with different toy categories such as Legos, dishes, and coloring supplies to make finding specific play items a breeze.
There seems to be no end of papers with kids, from treasured pieces of art to school projects. Display their latest creations on clipboards hung in their room as suggested by Mom 365, which allows you to keep previous papers without filling up the entire wall. When you accumulate too many to keep, they also recommend scanning them into a computer and making a collage. That way you can toss the paper without getting rid of the memories.
