5 Tips For Organising Your Baby's Wardrobe
When it comes to babies, every bit of planning saves time in the long run – because, let’s face it, they don’t always stick to a schedule.
A task like sorting your bub’s wardrobe and giving everything a home will help you get out of the house on time. It’ll also make your life easier during those frantic searches for clean clothes at 3am.
Here are my top five tips for organising your baby’s wardrobe.
1. Divide your drawers and fold vertically
Piling your little one’s clothes on top of each other creates unnecessary rummaging. By folding them vertically, so they’re sitting up, you’ll be able to see what you have at a glance – and save space in the process.
A further step is to use drawer dividers to keep the items in place. They’re easy for categorising similar pieces, too.
2. Keep like items together
It makes sense to store similar items together, categorised in a way that works for you – for example, by season or occasion. Once you’ve grouped everything, place them in separate containers, such as baskets, tubs or boxes, where they’ll be easy to retrieve when you need them.
3. Dedicate a basket to donations
This is a great hack for saving time down the track. As your baby outgrows clothes, toys or other items, place them in your dedicated basket and store it at the bottom of your wardrobe.
When it gets full, you can deal with it accordingly – whether that’s donating to a charity shop or passing on to friends and family. Repeat the process whenever you need to.
4. Tuck away out-of-season items
A good way to think of this is: ‘out of season, out of sight’. Keep your unused clothing and accessories in boxes or baskets and tuck them away until it’s time to bring them back out.
This will free up your main wardrobe space for easy access to essentials.
5. Use labels
You might have sorted everything perfectly into boxes, but if you don’t know what’s in them, you’ll have to go digging back through.
A simple labelling system will help you find what you need, and fast. Cardboard tags on a string work perfectly and can be easily changed and removed.
