How do you organize your baby's clothes?

do you put matching outfits in the closet on hangers and mixed matches in the dresser along with pjs?
or all in dresser, what do you do with the clothes they outgrow, do you keep a box in the bottom of the closet to put too small clothes in?

  • I consider it organized if they make it from the living room basket back into their room.

  • I tend to keep the hangers the outfits came on and rehang them up in the closet. I like to hang shirts so that you don't get fold lines or wrinkles. Her dresser has socks/ shoes in a drawer, pjs, pants, and then a couple of outfits for the opposite season (summer outfits when it's winter that sort of thing) because we live in California and the weather is nuts.

    After she outgrows them I have a large rubbermaid bin, and I bought the large ziplock baggies. I put them in the baggies by age (0-3mo, 3-6mo, 6-9mo) and then I put them in the bin. We're saving all our baby clothes until we're done having kids just to be prepared, especially with the way the economy is going. Ugh! But if my next is a boy, unless I get him some clothes he is going to have a very pink wardrobe! lol

  • Currently, my son has 3 drawers, my daughter has 4 and they share a closet. Jackets and dresses are hung. For her, (3y) I put long sleeve shirts in the top drawer, then short sleeves, then pants, then pajamas (bottom drawer). Socks and undies go in a small tupperware type drawer thing. His clothes go as follows: top=tops. Middle = undershirts and pajamas and bottom is pants. I have two boxes in the bedroom for each of their outgrown clothes.

  • I hang up all the clothes that are currently her size, and organize them in the closet by type: first short-sleeved onesies, long sleeved onesies, t shirts, pants, dresses, jackets and then pajamas. Her dresser has one drawer for socks & hats, and a cabinet for blankets. The other three drawers have clothes in bigger sizes, organized by size.

    With the clothes she's outgrown, I wash them, and put them on the top shelf of her closet in a rubbermaid bin.

  • I use clothes pins to pin the pants to the hanger that the shirt is hanging on.
    For the PJs, I stack them so the two pieces are right together.
    In the closet, I have long sleeved shirts in one area, short sleeve or sleeveless in another. Warm weather outfits in one area, cool weather sets in another. Special items like swimsuits or snowsuits in one area. Clothes that are too big are not in the closet.

  • I hang up my daughter's dresses and son's dressy clothes in the closet. I also hang matching outfits together so that they are easy to find. Any outfits I want to keep I have one box for in their closet. I have another box to put clothes that they outgrow. I save one dresser drawer to put the next size clothes in so that I'm prepared.

    I'm really weird about how I put their clothes away. I put them away in sets so that I can just grab one out of the drawer easily. First I lay down the shirt, then I place the folded pants and any other outfit pieces on top of the shirt and fold the arms around it to make a bundle. I like to put matching socks in the bundle also.

    I keep the pj's in a separate drawer.
