AUGUST PROJECT: ORGANIZING THE SHELVES

I know that we are all different, and different things work for different people. I have spent a few weeks really racking my brain on how to organize my son's clothes. I knew that regardless what system I do implement, it will definitely include a bin. This way my mind can rest in peace knowing that the shelves are going to look neat, regardless of what the inside of the bin looks like. The clothes are going to be corralled inside the bin, out of plain sight.

I definitely had a few systems in mind, but was not exactly sure which one to try first, and naturally (for me) a little nervous about how  he will accept it, and whether or not it would work.

...That is until I had him try on his jeans. The crate was sitting empty on the floor, next to his sister's neatly organized crate. He became increasingly excited and exclaimed that he will fold his own pants  and store them into his crate (remind you of anyone?). So I let him, curious to see what he would do.

My heart was going pitter-patter as I watched my little guy roll up his jeans, telling me that this is how he likes it, because it's fun and easy. So there you have it! He showed me the way.


Not bad for the first time, don't you think? 

Then  I asked him if he would like me to show him a little neater way of rolling his pants. He agreed...so we folded them together.


This is what our bins looked like after:







Next we folded the pj's. We rolled the bottoms into the tops. Check it out:


All this is fine and dandy, but I do have a small problem on my hands. We have spent an entire afternoon going through the kid's clothes. We pulled out the clothing from the storage, weeded out the small items...and everything did fit into the wardrobe, but it's way too tight. I will be spending the next week figuring out how to solve this issue, and what to do about the drawers...
Any ideas? I would love to hear from you!

Have a fabulous week! 
Lots of love,
