I'm willing to [embarrassingly] admit that my kids live out of laundry baskets. These laundry baskets usually reside in our dining room and frequently end up "exploding" all over. Not to mention it is a terrible time trying to find things!
I don't like storing things in their closet because it's cramped.. there's one rod, the closet is about 3.5 feet wide and about 2.5 feet deep. We have our little air conditioners stored in the bottom of her closet. There are two big boxes of outgrown clothes and baby toys that we are saving.. those reside on the top shelves.
So I have about 1 rod to work with, about about 3 feet of space under the rod because of the things located on the floor of the closet. Maybe I can puzzle and stack the AC's differently... there is a lock on the closet so I don't worry as much about the girls' getting into it and hurting themselves.
Right now, the girls' winter wardrobe consists of long cotton dresses and cotton yoga pants that go under. I can hang the dresses- but what do I do about the pants? And what do I do with socks and underwear?
Also... their summer clothes. I can hang the shirts and dresses. But what about the shorts? Where do I put bathing suits when that time comes?
And when this new baby comes... oh man. I don't even know what I'll do with his or her clothes and diapers!
But for now... how should I be organizing their closet?
