Sharing some of my tips & tricks on how I try to keep all of baby JT’s clothes & items organized.
It’s not like your own clothes, where you can forget about it for months and take it out and wear again. These babies grow fast – so I needed a system to have his clothes organized by size and ensuring everything has a home. I don’t want to miss that window of opportunity, especially if it’s for outfits that I loved & paid good money for.
This is where I plan to keep all current sizes readily available within reach during diaper changes. I have a few extras in 1 size up, just in case.
Tip: I find it’s easier to see everything if you stack them vertically vs on top of each other.
I’m lucky enough to have a lot of closet space in my home. In the first hanging closet is where I hang all of his sleepers – organized by size and color. I did this so that I can:
- Clearly see how many sleepers I have in each size
- Organize my sleepers by size – that way I can grab the next size up when he outgrows the clothes in the dresser
- Enjoy the view
Note: You don’t have to buy baby hangers like I did – a lot of the times they come with plastic hangers. What I ended up doing was removing some of the “size tags” and sticking it onto my hangers. But I didn’t stop there – I actually re-use the hanger for clothes that I have on hand (unwashed clothing).
I tried to give everything a home – so this is also where I plan to store my supply of diapers and wipes (currently hidden by closet door).
Tip: These 3 Sprout containers fit the Ikea KALLAX storage system perfectly!
Large baby items such as: baby bath tub, swings, seats etc.
This one has multiple shelves – so I decided to grab some IKEA baskets to keep all of his little things organized.
Right now, it has larger sizes of going out clothes. I decided to keep them here because:
- They are still unwashed
- I don’t have hangers for the pants
- I can store outfits together
I added a numbering system to my baskets just so I can keep organized. You can use any heavy-duty paper and a glue gun. Once you want to relabel, you can peel off the glue.
