Abigails organized closet

November 29, 2010

Last week I spent a little time organizing Abigails closet.  Oh, how I wish I could have shared the before!  It was a disaster.  We needed a “preschool” desinated storage system where she could put away and get her own clothes out.  She has a beautiful armoire, but it wasnt child friendly.  So, I am using that for extra storage now.

  I purchased the drawers from Target, as well as the circle containers.  The containers on the top shelf with the green lid are from Dollar General.  I used those for out of season storage (far from a 3 year olds reach)… since she loves to dress up in skirts and summer dresses.

The “tights” drawer has long containers to put her rolled up tights in (so they stay rolled up).

I labeled each drawer (I know, OCD!) 

1. Tights
2. Socks
3. Summer pjs
4. Winter pjs
5. Swimwear
6. Panties
7. Leggings
8. Jeans

Her short sleeved/long sleeved shirts, dresses, sweaters, and jackets are all on hangers.

What do your closets look like?

    Thanks Sandy. How is your picture taking going?

  3. I tried something in my girls’ closets awhile back, mostly because Paris has so much clothing lol, but it really helped a lot, and I love it. Instead of ordering her clothes by “short sleeve”, “long sleeve” “skirts” “dresses” “shrugs” etc… I did it in color order… All pinks together, then reds, on to greens, then blues, purple, so on and so forth… I did it because I had short sleeve polo shirts that she would wear with a matching sweater… well, the two were seperated because of the way I had them organized, and I would forget about cute outfit ideas! With everything organized by color, it works out perfectly! I believe I have it like this… Khaki,Denim, Black, Gray, White, Cream, Brown, Burgundy, Pink, Red, Navy, other blues, Greens, Purples, and then I have her formal dresses together toward the back since she rarely wears them… And if there is a certain line from Gap, Gymboree or Crazy 8, it still falls within the color order… and when they aren’t seperated by “lines” it’s easier to mix “non-line” pieces with pieces from a certain “line”. Hope this makes sense! 😉

    That sounds very organized. I minimalized abigails clothes to very few. She had tons of stuff she didnt wear and it was just getting tossed out on to the floor. So, I downsized. I find it easy to hang her shirts… so she doesnt drag them all out. 🙂 She loves to change clothes 5 times a day. Thats the only downside of having drawers in reach. :/

  5. I think it will work out for you though, the drawers… reading what items you kept in the drawers, she shouldn’t be into those too much, I would think… tights, jeans… a bit difficult to put on… the skirts and shirts are up, so I think it will work brilliantly for you!

    I LOVE the plastic drawer units you put in her closet! Where did you find them? I could use a few of these for my kids’ closets and my linen closets. TFS!

    Hi, I have been on Target.com looking for these drawers and was hoping you could tell me the dimensions you bought. I can’t seem to find the tall and short drawers in the same length and width (so they can stack nicely) like it looks like you have. Are you shorter drawers also not quite as wide/long?
