I’ve been working on getting the house organized this summer while I have the time since school is out. Also, can I please add that summer as a teacher with three kids is not as rest filled as it once was? I know the days are long but the years are short…but the days are SO long right now. I feel like all I’m doing is cooking, negotiating 3 bites of this, 2 bites of that, cleaning, and laundry-ing, and repeat. I’m working on squeezing in some organizing stuff in between all of THAT (oh, and working on getting my blog up and going!)
One of my fave blogger and instagrammers is Nesting With Grace (check her out here). She’s got a summer organizing challenge that focuses on different areas of the home each week. Last week (or was it two weeks ago? Keeping track of time in summer is pretty much impossible!) was kids clothing. I jumped in a little late, but I was able to do Charlee’s dresser and closet. Baby clothes are like the literal worst to organize. They’re so small and they grow SO fast, by the time you get one size organized, its time to move ’em up!
Here’s a quick look at her drawer before I went after it. Everything was literally just wadded up in there and I never took the time to fold anything back up because it would just get all messed up again.
I ended up ordering these drawer organizers from amazon. They fit perfectly in her drawers. I chose to fold her pj’s, rompers, shirts/onsies, pants, and swimsuits. Oh, and I am keeping her bloomers separate of her dresses just because I mix and match the bloomers with different outfits depending on what she’s wearing.
I also ordered felt baby size hangers. I did have to spend a little extra, and I know, I know…they won’t last forever because she will grow out of them but I like the perk of the clothes staying on them better and they look really nice and sleek in her closet. I hung all of her dresses and a few little sweaters/jackets (that will probably be too small when fall rolls around but oh well).
I feel like I can find her outfits much quicker now, plus it looks nice and that’s always an added bonus!
