Space Saving Organizing Tricks for Kid's Clothing

Earlier this week I showed you a couple organizing revamps I”ve been working on this week – today I”m going to  share a great way to organize clothes in drawers for easy access.  Maybe you all do this already, for sale but if not give it a whirl.  It”s a great trick that won”t take any more time, store but it”s sure to keep you a little saner in the clothing storage department.  Not only is it easier for your kids to see and grab their clothes, physician but this is a space saver too.   Want to try it?  Next time you”re putting laundry away, follow these easy steps. 

  • Take everything out of the drawer
  • Sort the clothes by clothing type or pant type
  • If you It’s “ check credit score for free = money. fold pants in half, fold them in thirds so they fit
  • Put the clothes away “standing up” instead of flat

Here are two ideas:

My daughter has a smaller dresser with three drawers – so the middle drawer holds all pants, skirts, and shorts.  Socks, tights, undies in the top drawer and pajamas in the bottom drawer.

My son has a larger dresser with more drawers so he gets a separate drawer for pants and shorts.

This method works great for pajamas too:

Want to see how I fold two piece pajama sets to save space and keep them easy access for the kiddos?

So how about you?  Any decluttering or organizing projects this week?

  1. I am definitely trying this! In fact, i’ve alredy begun by collecting a huge pile of ironing ready to be done and put away! Thx for the great idea.

  2. I definitely need to teach my kids to fold their PJs together; maybe then they wouldn’t have to spend so much time searching for them!

  3. My project for this weekend is to get my dear husband to clean/organize his corner in the bedroom. My end goal is to get him to keep less clutter/papers. 🙂
    Love your folding method.

  4. OMGoodness! Why have I never thought of that folding tuck for the two-piece PJ’s?!?! That’s fantastic! And DD has a drawer full of legging/shirt outfits that will go the same route so that she and Daddy can easily KNOW what goes together! THANK YOU!!!!! 🙂 And I’m also going to try the standing-up approach, I think that will help her tons… 🙂

  5. I do that with my son’s clothes. The pj’s, the winter clothes, even his closet. We hang his shirts. Long sleeves with long sleeves, now that it’s winter, sweaters with sweaters, shirts with shirts. My husband likes to go in and color coordinate too. Which actually makes it look really organized. We also hang his jeans. But his sweat pants we fold in his dresser. It feels good at the end of the day when his laundry is all done and his clothes is neatly put away…

  6. I have had a clothing problem with my kids for as many years I have had children, 25 to be exact and still have the same problem. Myself and the kids are all add. What ended up working for me was to do away with dresses completely and use stackable bins and shelving. Thus far it has worked out great. They can see what they want to wear and grab it without digging and throwing clothing everywhere. When putting away it is wonderful too, find the stack of short sleeve shirts and they just add to the pile!!

    That’s a great idea to stand the clothes on end instead of in stacks! I will be revamping my son’s drawers soon! About your pajama-folding method, I didn’t see any link to click on or video to watch…..could you post the link here for me? I don’t know why I don’t see it…

  8. I already do this pretty much one drawer for pjs one for under clothes and socks and one for shirts and one for pants and if there’s another drawer ill put play clothes or one side is play shirt and other Is school/church shirts and same with pants cause I have boys and boys must have play clothes…i never understood growing up why I had to take off my school clothes but I get it now cause I had a brother And it was more for him
