Organizing Clothes

My child is almost a year and a half, but I still don't feel like I have a handle on everything. I still find myself underestimating how long it takes to get us all out the door, how much stuff to pack in my diaper bag, how many socks Lucy will go through and how much time I will spend looking for a matching top. But hey, at least now I can cross one of those off.

I have finally found a way to keep my kids clothes organized and not just organized, but sooooo organized that even my husband can find something for Lucy to wear and I can guarantee that it will coordinate!

I was over at Target and was checking out some tubs to help organize my crafting supplies and stumbled across some hanging closet shoe organizers, which gave me a great idea. I bought one and used it for Lucy's clothes. Every compartment can easily hold one outfit, complete with socks, hair bows, and shoes.

It is great, I don't have to think about what will go with what, where are her socks, and do I have a clean onesie? All I do is grab! It has been a life saver and helps me keep my house more organized, which is something that I always need.

You can get these organizers at any Wal-Mart, Kmart, Target, or Bed Bath and Beyond and you can find them for about 19.99.

P.S Congrats to Beth at A Mom's Life for winning the Shopping List giveaway! Everyone give Beth a big congrats!


  1. My mom used to do this for us when we were little girls, except she would put our entire outfit in a plastic bag, and loop the plastic bag around a hanger for every day. It really helped with the morning crazies when there were four little girls to get ready!

  2. Well, OK, I can see where this might work for some people, but our approach to fashion is a little more...mix n' match, if you get my drift.

    I have dreams of my daughter wearing/owning cute outfits, but instead we have this incredible hodge-podge of hand-me-downs and clearance sales and such that may or may not match anything else she owns. Every new day is an adventure in searching for a top of the right color to match those pants.

    Who am I kidding. That describes my wardrobe too. =)

  3. Very clever! I totally hear you about misjudging the time it takes to get out the door with baby . . . I swear he fills his diaper on purpose sometimes when I am trying to get out the door just to tease me!

  4. This is such a great idea! I think when my little peanut comes, I'll be stealing this idea myself. :-)

  5. I am soooooo slow! You left the "You Won" comment on my latest blog post and I didn't know what you meant. I was trying to figure out how "You Won" related to my post.

    As my son would say, "DUH, Mom!"

    I am so excited that I won this! And I guess this means you aren't really going to stalk me! :)

  6. Sounds like a great idea. I love ideas that simplify my life.

  7. Those are cool.

    And what do you mean, they have to match?

  8. This is an awesome idea! I may have to steal this from you. I am almost 21 weeks pregnant and we're working on setting up our nursery so this is perfect timing.
