How to Store Baby Clothes

Storing baby/child clothes can be a challenge, because people tend to get over cluttered and frustrated so they just give up leaving themselves with overstuffed closets and one big mess.  Now I know some professional organizers would say to donate, sell or get rid of the clutter- however when properly organized these garments will not be clutter in your home and stored properly they can be relocated to an attic, garage, or basement. If you end up having another baby down the road the clothes could come in hand saving you lots of time and money. Here’s my simple steps:

  • Sort all clothes
  • Wash/Dry all clothes – so they are clean for storing
  • Now you need some storage tubs with lids you can find them in a variety of shapes, colors, & sizes  (tubs are my personal favorite because they keep water, dirt, & bugs out)
  • Here’s where to buy tubs: Wal-Mart, Rubber maid online store, The Container Store, and Amazon
  • Also, you need 1 dryer sheet per tub (you will tape this to the inside of the storage lid) for a fresh scent
  • Don’t roll clothes, gently place them lying as flat as possible on one another – rolling will take more space and incur wrinkles
  • Label the boxes like you see in the above picture (sizes and items – visible to the outside of the container)
  • Make a separate bin for non clothing items (baby wash clothes, towels, crib sheets, blankets, etc)

 

This project may take a day or two but its well worth it and make it fun have your kids help sort clothes and carry them to the washer
