Organizing kids clothes can be a daunting task… but it can also be fun and it can be freeing to finish it! Today we are talking about 5 tips for organizing and buying your children’s clothes, with the help of Garanimals!
Yesterday, I had to go through our four children’s closets and do “the switch”.
Summer clothes were taken out. Fall clothes were moved front & center. I actually enjoy organizing their closets. Our kids grow so fast (like your kids!) and I love to swap out their old clothes for their new ones (even if they are hand-me-downs).
TIP: I always save an outfit from each size, just to keep for their child one day.
Here are my best tips to keep their clothes organized, because this can be a chaotic event!
1- Organize one closet at a time. Take out the clothes that don’t fit and place them into a bin. Take out (or move) the out-of-season clothes. Be sure that your new clothes are clean and ready to go. If not, set the wrinkly or messy ones aside to be washed before they go into the closet. (Kids LOVE to play, so before I move our older son’s clothes to our younger son’s closet, I check for stains. (playtime gets messy in our house!) I just treat the stains & wash them again before they go into the closet.) Luckily, I buy clothes that are affordable, so I ‘don’t cry over spilled paint’.
2- Place outfits together. I really try not to have shirts separate from pants. Honestly. I just won’t ever put our daughter in that top if it doesn’t have the matching pants. I’ll just grab a dress instead. Its easier & looks cute.
3- By clothes that you can mix and match. I follow the #2 tip above, but the awesome part is that with Garanimals, I can have three shirts with three pants that can all be mixed and they still match. This really gives me so many more outfits! (Its like saving money!) They make clothes for Newborns up to 5T, so its great for our family!
4- Organized in the closet: I like to organize by style. In our sons’ closets, I have dress shirts, then short sleeve, then long sleeve. In our daughter’s closet, I have holidays (ex: Christmas outfits), then dresses, then shorts outfits, then pant outfits. It makes it easy to find what I want.
5- Buy clothes that you can afford. Kid’s grow out of their clothes so fast, so just remember that you child will only wear that outfit for a few months before they grow out of it. Buy clothes that are affordable (again, Garanimals is an awesome choice- they hold up, but they aren’t over-priced) because kids grow fast…
