Closet Organization!

The next step is organizing the closet… I’ve made a few plans for that so far.  First I bought these plastic tubs to hold her folding clothes.  She’d outgrown the baskets I used for her baby clothes, and the new baby can use those anyway.  I’m not 100% sold on these, but they are at least organized for now and they block the corner on that silly shelf that everyone seems to bump into.  I also bought a big 18 gallon tub to hold the hand-me-down and off-season clothes she hasn’t quite grown into yet.  (Thanks Kelly and Raegan!)  I went through everything while I was at it and packed away all the clothes that she’s outgrown and hung up her dresses in matching hangers… yes, pregnancy OCD strikes again.  Although I usually do hang her clothes in rainbow colors, I don’t usually go to the trouble of spacing them evenly like this… so it was worth a picture. ;)   (Oh, and notice the important fire escape ladder)

Making this whole organization thing more fun, Serenity found me while I was trying to decide what clothes she'd outgrown and what of the 4t stuff we'd just gotten from Raegan would fit her... and so we had an impromptu fashion show.  I think she tried on everything twice!!!  I especially loved it when she began her outfit by wearing just her pink boots and diaper =)  She eventually added a dress and pink jacket but for a while it was all about the boots.  Then she discovered a polka-dot nightgown... and decided it went great with a polka dot swimsuit... and then later I found her in polka dot pants too.  Believe it or not, there is also a pink polka dot skirt underneath all that!  =)  

I plan for the second bar to be dress up-clothes, with a tub for the hats and such underneath.  Then on the right side will be her dollhouse when it’s not on rotation in the corner I’m dedicating to a “big toy”

I added the dress up clothes!  It's so nice to be able to hang some, the tub that now just holds hats and accessories was enough at first, but her costume collection has grown like crazy!  I love that she enjoys it so much =)  You can read more about the cape, and bird wings here.

  1. I am envious (in a good way) of that closet. I had those systems installed in our old house (came with the house) and I LOVED them. I really need to do that. What a little sweetie..I love fashion shows.
