I need help organizing my 3 year old’s closet.

When organizing any closet, including one for a child, first decide what you’ll be storing (besides clothing and shoes).  Will you keep costumes and dress up clothing inside the closet? Jackets and other outerwear and accessories (scarves, gloves)? Will you keep linens and blankets on the closet shelf? Toys? What you store, how much you store, and the size of your closet will determine how you organize it.

Once you have decided what items you’ll store in your child’s closet, figure out if you need containers to store certain items and the sizes that would work best for your space. Will you use clear containers or lined baskets on the closet shelf? Will you install hooks on the inside of the door or use a shoe organizer (for shoes, toys, hair accessories, socks, etc.) instead?

For clothing, you may want to organize them by size (3T, 4T) and then type (pants, dresses, tops) so that you can find what you’re looking for easily (especially if you’re the parent who helps your child to get dressed). If you’d also like your child to easily reach some of the clothing inside the closet, think about using a double hanging rod or using a closet organizing system like the Rubbermaid HomeFree series™ Closet Kit. It’s expandable and can be customized to grow as your child does. This means that you can reconfigure it as your child’s needs change.

    I’m impressed, I must say. Actually not often do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me let you know, you might have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is excellent; the issue is something that not enough individuals are speaking intelligently about. I’m very glad that I stumbled across this in my search for something referring to this.
