How To

How-To | Clean Up the Kids' Closet

Oct 25, 2018

If the kids’ closet is starting to look like an avalanche of toys and clothing, we’ve got tips for you! Professional Shira Gill shows us how to quickly contain the chaos and transform it into a streamlined and practical space.

Gather These Tools:

6-Tier Hanging Storage Organizer, Storage Cube, Medium Storage Box, Large Storage Box, Collapsible Hamper

STEP 1:
Start Fresh

Start by taking everything out. Give the closet a good clean and vacuumed so you have a truly fresh start.

STEP 2:
Sort it Out

Next, sort piles by category – clothing in one pile, stuffed animals in one pile, games in another pile, etc. Once you see what you're working with, you can ask the kids to put anything they don't love or use into a donation bin. Part with clothing that doesn't fit, games they no longer play with, and books that feel too young.

STEP 3:
Relocate What Doesn't Belong

It’s important to define what items belong in any given space. Identify the random items that had migrated into the closet (there’s that tennis ball!) and relocate them elsewhere in your home.

STEP 4:
Store and Style

In order to make sure the kids maintain their streamlined space with ease, set up The Laundress Storage Boxes with labels to contain items by type. Place seldom-used items on the highest shelves (i.e items to grow into and sentimental items). Use the Hanging Organizer for displaying favorite shoes and accessories, ensuring easy access.

As a final touch, you can also upgrade sad laundry bins with the Collapsible Hamper, which is super lightweight and can handle a weeks worth of laundry.

STEP 3:
Create a Simple Routine

Once a space is set up and organized, it’s important to practice consistent habits to maintain it. In our house, the girls are expected to help fold and put away their clean laundry each week and do a quick sweep of their room before bed to make sure dirty clothes made it into the laundry bin, and that their toys and projects are put away.
