Keeping My Baby's Clothes Organized- WFMW

When Baby Ray was born, we got a TON of clothes. I mean a TON. Gifts, hand-me-downs, two first time grandmothers and THREE first time great-grandmothers makes for a LOT of baby clothes. To keep them all organized, I have a set of hanging shelves in the closet of Ray's room. Each shelf is dedicated to one size, and the shelves are in age order. So right now at the top I have 3-6 (Ray's upcoming size), the second shelf holds 6-9 and 6-12, the third 9-12, etc. For the bigger sizes, which I have fewer clothes for, I combined shelves, so the bottom two hold 12-18 and 18-24, and 24 mos and up, respectively. This way, everything stays organized and separated, and if I'm going shopping I can just glance at the shelves to see what I still need in which size, in case I find something cute. If anything comes on a size-labeled hanger, I keep the item on the hanger so I can easily see what size it is without having to shove away all the other hanging things.

Keeping Ray's Clothes organized works for me, so I'm linking up to Works For Me Wednesday at We Are That Family


  1. I love this idea and will share it with my daughters-in-love...aka mommy's to my grand daughters.

    Nice blog. I love the first experiment photo.

    My daughter and both daughter-in-loves all blog. As a not-on-sight grandma, I love them. They are the first thing I read each morning. It makes me feel like I live next door, not 120 miles away. I hope your friend and family enjoy your blog. If not, it is a wonderful to record your family activities each year. I understand that most blog locations can make a book out of your blog entries....what a great thing that is, makes a wonderful present for grand parents.

    Have a great day, kiss that baby.

  2. Thanks for stopping by and commenting!! :)
    My mom is also far away and it's tough on her too. Although, truthfully, I haven't told anyone about the blog yet, seeing as it's still an experiment.
    Happy HOlidays!
