    Default Help me organise my sons clothes etc :)

    So I'm reorganizing my three year olds clothes in his room a bit better & I want suggestions from the more organised parents out there to help me!

    He doesn't have any hanging space, only draws.

    He has one bed side cabinet, with two large draws in it. And a tallboy, with two small draws side by side, & then three normal size draws.

    I need places for his jocks, singlets, socks, pjs, tshirts, shorts, jumpers, & trackies/jeans. Ideally somewhere for his shoes too, but that's not urgent. And I want to move his jocks (currently in one of the small draws in the tallboy) into his bedside cabinet, so he can easily access these on his own without my help if need be (newly toilet trained, trying to make it easier for him!!).


    So help me - what would you put where? & what things would you put in the same draw (jocks with socks or singlets? Or all three together??) - to maximize the other draws for other things?

    HELP!!!!! I'm a terrible organiser!!

    I have a long set of 3 drawers.

    Top drawer for pj's, middle drawer for winter stuff, bottom drawer for summer clothes.

    Undies and socks are in a woven basket that sits on top of the drawers for easy access.

    My DS doesn't have many shoes, so they're just in a big rattan storage chest with a lid near the front door that has all the family shoes in it.

    My 2 boys have the same set up:
    Undies/socks/singlets in the top drawer, then in descending order:
    Hats/beanies/belts/swimming gear
    Pyjamas
    Long sleeved tops
    Long pants
    Short sleeved tops
    Shorts
    Clothes they're yet to grow into/rain wear
    Shoes

    They have a little bit of hanging space and that's where jumpers, jackets, coats and their dressing gowns go.
    I swap the long sleeved / short sleeved and long pants / shorts in cooler/warmer months.

    We have the same set up. In the three small drawers we have:

    Underwear
    Swimming gear
    Winter undergarments (so his undie drawer is kept to undies and socks...it's easier for him to find things this way).
    Then tallboy:
    The divided drawers at the top - one has jumpers, one has trackpants.
    Then we have:
    A pyjama drawer
    A summer clothes drawer
    A winter drawer.
    Then he has a 4th drawer which bed sheets are stored in.

    I've had this system going for years for all of my children and I find it to be the most user friendly.

    Shoes are on the inside of the front door in our entrance...each child has a little basket for their shoes.

    I have DD's organised as follows:
    (Tallboy with 2x little drawers, 3×normal drawers & 1x large drawer)

    Pajamas in one little drawer
    Undies, socks & singlets in the other little one
    1. Tops (one side short sleeve, other long sleeve)
    2. Dresses/skirts
    3. Pants/leggings & jumpers
    Bottom drawer has spare blankets in it at the moment.

    I go through it at the start of each season & review - anything too small gets taken out so there is space to replace it if need be.
