Organizing a Small Closet


My son's room is quite small.  In his room there is also a small closet.  I tried to maximize his closet space by keeping his things neat organized.

His pants and shorts are kept in his dresser, while his shirts hang in the closet. My son helps out with laundry by putting away his clothes. Organizing his shirts by color makes picking out outfits and getting dressed much easier.

To keep Caleb organized for the school week. After washing and drying his clothes I separate each outfit and place it in the hanging organizer by the day of the week.  This system makes getting ready for school each morning so much simpler.  There's no more whining about what he has to wear, since his school uniforms are already laid out for him!

I enjoy playing board games with my son.  To keep organized, we store them on a small bookcase in his closet.  We use the small blue bins to store his small toys.

Caleb enjoys reading. I try to encourage him to read by keeping his books out where he can see them.  I purchased this small  shelf from Target for his collection of books.  He keeps his room much neater because everything has its place.

I am not the most organized person, but I try to keep things in place by living by the motto, "when you're done put it back"!  

*Thanks so much to Tiffany and curbly.com for featuring Caleb's closet.

  14. You got me reorganizing my small closet for my husband and I and to get rid of some furniture because we have too much.
    I am glad your son likes to read. Those shelves remind of the school library shelves. I will get one my magazine and newspaper spread. Yes, I still collect, and read newspapers and books. I hope they will never go out of style.

  16. Olá Brandi, Caleb é tão lindo e me parece tão tranquilo, assim como vejo você... gostei de conhecer um menino tão organizado e que também gosta de ler... parabéns! A organização facilita mesmo no dia a dia, mas você minha Amiga faz tudo parecer tão fácil... adoro visitar seu blog, aqui aprendo bastante e já começo a lidar melhor com as tarefas de casa, desde então. Aproveite a tarde de domingo para fazer algo bem divertido com Caleb, beijinhos.
