Organizing Baby Clothes


In my last post, I mentioned how special it has been for me to be preparing for our new baby boy. My friends have been incredibly generous with hand-me-downs, and I'm enjoying hanging up and organizing all of these precious, tiny clothes.
These clothes dividers have been very helpful in keeping all of these tiny outfits organized:

I picked them up at Baby Depot (Burlington Coat Factory) years ago, before my first daughter was born, but when I Googled them tonight, I found a lot of them available online. (Here's an example)
My friends have been SO generous, they've given me clothes in great condition all the way through size 3T. Instead of going into the closet right now and cluttering up Baby's room, all clothes over 6 months are being stored like this:


When Baby outgrows the newborn size, I'll bring in the 6-9 months from the garage and rotate the clothes. The less stuff in his room to keep organized, the happier I am. : ) I like the uncluttered feel/look.
Works for me.....
Here's what's working for other bloggers this week.

I think we must be long-lost sisters. I do the exact same things! I even posted about the closet thingies aknost a year ago: http://selahgraphics.net/noendinsite/2007/08/28/wfmw-closet-size-dividers/ I'm sure a whole new batch of readers will love the idea though.

Great idea - congratulations and I wish you a happy and healthy rest of your pregnancy.

I rotated the bins out according to size, just like you, but why didn't I think of buying clear boxes and adding a sheet of paper detailing the size? Enjoy the last bits of being pregnant.

What great ideas! I've been putting off switching out the winter for summer stuff in our boys' dresser. I like your detailed labels on the boxes. I'll have to try it. Thanks for sharing! Come on by Wani’s World sometime!

I am definitely getting some dividers! I was organizing baby clothes this past weekend. I'm like you, many hand-me-downs. I love that you stored the bigger ones. I tried to fit all the clothes into one dresser.... didn't work. I'm doing your way this weekend!
Thanks for the idea!!

I did the same thing with the clear plastic boxes. It really does help to keep all the kid's clothes organized.
