How To Organize Kids Drawers

How To Organize Kids Drawers

I am going to be starting by taking everything out of every single drawer in his room.  I will be looking at the sizes to see if he’s outgrown any of the clothes.  Then I will sort through the clothes that I had stored in his closet that we got from his cousin.  Since he has a tall dresser, I need to reevaluate how we use this dresser.  I want to foster independence when it comes time to selecting his clothes, so I am only going to use the bottom three drawers for his clothes.  The top two will be for bedding and bigger size clothes.

I decided to put all of his pajamas in a bin in his closet.  Then I put all of his pants, shorts, and socks in the bottom drawer.  The second drawer from the bottom will hold all of his t-shirts, then the drawer third from the bottom will hold all of his fall/winter clothes.  As the weather gets cooler, I will move some of the fall clothes into the drawer with this t-shirts.

My daughter’s drawers are a different story.  She has a long, low dresser with many drawers.  To help foster independence for her, I am keeping all of her clothes in the bottom drawers.  I am putting all of her shorts, skirts, and capris in one drawer, socks in another, and t-shirts, tank tops, and dresses in another.  Her pajamas will stay in the drawer they are in as she can reach those easily.  I have a drawer for tights, and a separate drawer for sweaters and sweatshirts.  I also have a drawer that has her long-sleeve shirts and pants.  By keeping all of her items categorized in drawers together, and located at an accessible height, she will be able to select her own clothes easily!

Now get to work on those pesky drawers!  And follow along via Facebook and Instagram for more pictures throughout the day!
