To save time and energy in the morning, nothing beats a well-organized wardrobe. Here are some simple tips to eliminate the clutter in the children's closet.
We often talk about preparing meals in advance to save time on weeknights. However, the morning routine can be overwhelming, starting with the choice of children's clothes. To be efficient, to stop searching and to avoid over-consumption, a tidy wardrobe is the key.
It burns you to find THE photo of the dream child's wardrobe on Pinterest. Everything is coordinated there, there is even tapestry on the back wall. But your wardrobe probably does not have the same dimensions and the quantity of clothes is surely different. To clearly see how much space you have, take everything out. Make sure you have a bed made to put all the clothes you put on it. Make stacks in this order;
- To give away: this pile must go immediately, so as not to encumber you any longer
- To put away for a future season: consider putting your out-of-season clothes in the basement or in another closet. Clearly identify the boxes in which you will putthese clothes. Indicate its contents (snow set, for example), the name of the child, the sizes and why not paste a photo of the article.
- For sale: be sure you will otherwise you will fall back into the mess
- To keep: these are the clothes that your children wear or will wear for back to school, for example.
By sorting, you will know the quantity of clothes to put away and the nature of the objects to organize. You will now be able to determine what type of storage is required and buy ONLY what will make your organization easier.
Have the right tools
We add shelves at the top of the wardrobe to put pretty boxes or decorative baskets containing off-season clothes, souvenirs or finds that will be used later. You could also stack clothes in vacuum bags which take up 75% less space.
In the bottom of the closet, we put a box for the shoes that we will place in such a way as to identify each pair at first glance.
Playing with the rods. Rather than a single long rod, opt for 2 adjustables placed one under the other. Since children's clothes are shorter than those of adults, you will save space and maximize your floor-to-ceiling storage capacities. You can reconfigure them according to the size of your children's clothes.
Everything in its place
Be creative by not hesitating to put a chest of drawers in the wardrobe. in additionto look chic, it offers camouflaged storage and frees up space in your child's room if you run out of it. Compartmentalize small items such as underwear or stockings by sectioning a drawer using adjustable dividers.
Maximize space by getting a multipurpose rack for accessories. The latter takes up the same space as a hanger but can accommodate up to 28 accessories such as scarves or shoes. You will find some at Dollarama.
A great back-to-school trick to try is to incorporate hanging lockers where each space represents a day of the week. On Sunday, your kids check their schedule, choose an appropriate set for each day, and fill in the boxes. With this trick, you will save time in the morning and above all you will develop your child's autonomy. winwin
Often we think we are running out of storage space when it is rather that we are not maximizing the space we have.
For example, use the back of the closet or bedroom door to hang cute accessories, photos, a backpack or outerwear.
Encourage them to tidy up now, they'll thank you later
Even the smallest wall can accommodate a nice hook to put necklaces or shoes on. Put the hooks at the height of the child to encourage their independence and accustom them to forming good habits.
Everything in its place
- Clothes tidy and above all highlighted, it's almost enjoyable. To create a wow effect you can;
- Classify clothes by color for a stunning visual
- Make sets for easy identification
- Show off a piece of clothing by hanging it on a wooden hanger in front of the closet door.
- Make or buy beautiful labels to identify everything.
To keep the clutter away
To maintain your new good storage habits, remember to keep a basket nearby for clothes that no longer fit. When this bin is full, you immediately donate it to an organization.
Before going shopping for new clothes for back to school, take a look at your children's wardrobe so you don't buy duplicates. By sublimating this space, you and your children will rediscover certain clothes and perhaps lose the desire to go and buy others.
Finally enjoy rearranging this space.
