It is no surprise that kids in their childhood frenzy are uninterested in maintaining tidiness. More often than not, you will find yourself heavily engrossed in cleaning your child’s room and being left to deal with what seems like a mountain of clothes either piled in their closets or stuffed inside their drawers. Here is a handful of nifty ways to organize your kid’s clothes, the next time the ghastly unpleasant chore of cleaning out and re-arranging you child’s cupboard arises:
- First and foremost, it is vital to remove each and every article of clothing or accessories from the closet before you begin. This will afford you some idea about the space you have to work with and allow you to brainstorm your ideas on how to arrange the given closet space. Furthermore, you can wipe the closet area clean and divest any dust particles or unpleasant smells that may have sustained in it.
- One easy way of commencing this task is to arrange your child’s clothes according to categories of colors. Dark colors (such as blacks, blues, greens, and browns) can be separated from lighter tones, and the more flashy clothing items can be dissociated to a different portion of the closet.
- To ease your child’s routine and make the organizing simpler, you may also further sub-divide your child’s clothes according to tops (t-shirts, cardigans, tank tops, etc.) and bottom wear (jeans, skirts, shorts, etc.) and hang or fold the shirts in a distinct portion from the lowers.
- Use some of the space to create a separate portion in the closet where you can hang pre-decided washed and ironed outfit for your child’s ensuing week. This will enable time-saving and efficiency in your routine and means that your child will not have to dig through clothes and create any new messes since their outfit will already be ironed and ready to wear from beforehand.
- If your children share the same closet space, then it is imperative that you assemble their clothes and belongings completely separately to avoid any quarrels or fights over territory. You should aim to organize their clothes in a way that is clearly demarcated and ensure that each child gets equal closet space.
- To guarantee the prevalence and maintenance of your organizing, you can ensure that you have set the cupboard in a way that is readily available for your child. For further clarity, you may label the different compartments of clothing, socks, etc. so that your child does not need to rummage through his or her entire wardrobe to find what they are looking for.
- Lastly, do not forget to purchase colorful, funky hangers, net baskets as well as other closet accessories. The hangers will help you compartmentalize and arrange the cupboard with greater ease as well as allow your child to hang the clothes back or put them in the ( laundry) basket once they’ve been worn, instead of piling them onto a chair.
