Ever wondered what life would feel like if we just had a magic wand that we could wobble at the end of the day and, ta-da! your room, wardrobe, and house were all spick and span?
As parents, there is no easy way to maintain a clean, organised house and cupboards. Keeping your child's wardrobe organised and clutter-free, in particular, can oftentimes be challenging. With so many clothes, toys, and accessories to manage, it's easy for things to get out of hand. However, with a little bit of effort and some helpful tips, you can create a functional and organised wardrobe for your little one. Here are some tips to help you get started.
Sort and purge.
Before you can organise your child's wardrobe, you need to sort through everything and decide what to keep and what to donate or throw away. This can be a daunting task, but it's important to keep in mind that you don't need to keep everything. Go through each item one by one and ask yourself if it still fits, if your child still wears it, and if it's in good condition. If the answer is no to any of these questions, it's time to let it go.
Use organisational tools.
Once you've sorted through everything, it's time to start organising. Invest in some hanging organisers, shelving, and storage bins; they are great organisational tools. Hanging organisers are great for storing shoes, hats, and accessories, while shelving and storage bins can be used for socks, shoes, and folded clothes. Make sure to label everything so that it's easy to find what you need.
Create a system.
To keep your child's wardrobe organised long-term, you need to create a system that works for you and your child. Decide on a specific place for each type of item, such as dresses, shirts, trousers, and toys. You can also organise by colour or size to make it easier to find what you need. Whatever system you choose, make sure to stick with it so that your child knows where everything goes.
To keep your child's wardrobe from becoming too cluttered, consider rotating clothes seasonally. Store off-season clothes in storage bins or vacuum-sealed bags to save space. When it's time to switch out the clothes, go through them again and decide what to keep and what to donate or throw away.
Involve your child.
Getting your child involved in the organising process can be a great way to teach them about responsibility and the importance of keeping their space tidy. Allow them to help you sort through their clothes and toys, and ask for their input on how to organise everything. You can also create a chore chart that includes cleaning their wardrobe as one of their responsibilities.
Organising your child's wardrobe can be a daunting task, but it's worth it in the long run. With a little bit of effort and some helpful tips, you can create a functional and clutter-free wardrobe for your child.
