Whenever I ask my Husband to find a particular cloth in Kids wardrobe, his obvious reply comes “I didn’t find”. This is why I always keep Kid’s changing clothes outside while I leave for Office.
Unlike adults, Kids wardrobe demands frequent visits.
They need to be organized more frequently and de-cluttered timely. This is because-
- Cloth size is small
- There are many categories of clothes- Sports wear, school wear, party wear, night wear, regular wear and so on.
- Searching by Kids results in shuffling and scattering
I try to involve my Kid while de-cluttering his Wardrobe and he happily participates.
However it is not easy to take Kid’s help because after a few minutes of folding and cleaning, they go into play mode and the struggle begins.
“For every minute spent organizing, an hour is earned.”Benjamin Franklin
Tips to de-clutter Kids wardrobe
Less Deep, more better
Kids wardrobe should not be deeper than 1 feet. It helps them to see through all the clothes better.
Pack the not-in-season clothes
Keep only the current season clothes in the wardrobe. It confuses them and may result in power struggles.
Personal secret tip: Do not keep their favorite dress in line of sight otherwise they will ask to wear it daily and you may end up in tears.
Segregate the clothes as per the usage
I try to keep more frequently used clothes in the front line and rest at the back.
Use baskets or cardboard boxes
Keep the clothes in separate boxes or baskets according to the cloth type.
Like socks, handkerchiefs and inner wear.
Do not consider Kids clothes as keepsakes.
Do not hoard them in the name of memories. Donate them time to time to the ones in need.
