Do you hang them? Dresser? Do you group outfits together or pants in one drawer, shirts in another?

I have 2 problems. Liz is wearing 6-9 month clothes but also some 12 month stuff. And she's the 3rd girl so we have SO many clothes from the other girls and people keep giving us new stuff! I HATE hanging clothes so all that's in her closet is coats basically. Her dresser is just a mess because there is no organization. We just bought a big cubical thing - 3 cubes long, 3 cubes high to put in her closet for clothes. We have one in the bigger girls' room because they share a room and dresser and also have lots of clothes. It's crazy!

I have nice dresses hanging in her closet. Socks in her left little drawer, shirts/onesies in the right little drawer, pjs in the top big drawer, and pants/sweaters in the bottom big drawer. I tried organizing by outfit but the drawer wasn't big enough to fit them all. The only problem with having pants and tops in separate drawers is that DH can't figure out what goes together.

We have on her changing table with a x-large wicker basket and that holds all of her misc oneies and random jeans/pants/sweats. I hang outfits together in the closet and also dresses, pajamas, sweaters and cardis. I have shelving in the closet that has wicker baskets one for socks, one for bibs. I also have one of those hanging cubicle that has her hats in one, shoes all in different cubes, one with hair bows and clips.

I don't know what's in her closet We don't really use it. There are some dresses in it but mostly it's stuff that's either too small or too big. Kolbie's in almost all 12 month sizes right now, but her drawers have 6m sizes in them still. Her top drawer is diapers, socks and bibs. Then jammies, shirts and pants in their own drawers. DH almost never dresses her so I don't worry about outfits.

Right now M doesnt have a dresser, his changing table has two drawers that i use. the top drawer has socks, burp cloths (that we dont really use anymore so i should take them out but... and bibs) then the second has his pants.

I hang up everything else, so i guess i'm no help!

eta -i like hanging up jammies and shirts bec/ then i can separate them by sizes. The pants drawer is only what is his current size then i keep the next size up ina box in the closet ready to go through if i need it. When its time to switch sizes i just take the bigger pants out and put the smaller pants in and that way they're all packed up to go in the basement

I have all of Karsyn's dresses, sweaters and jackets hanging.....then I have 2 sets of plastic drawers stacked on top of each other-so 6 drawers total. Top drawer has pants...jeans and soft comfy pants, the next drawer has onesies...long sleeve and short sleeve....then pajamas & footed onesies, then sets that have matching tops/bottoms and just tshirts. Then outfits that are a little big on her still...then the last drawer has socks, tights and shoes. Kinleys is directly across from Karsyn's and has the same set up...I put a post it note taped on the drawer that says whats in the drawer so DH knows exactly where everything is. Then I have a little set of plastic drawers with headbands/beanies, Kinley's socks, Kinley's panties and tights and hats/gloves. I have all of their bows hanging up on ribbons in their room. I also have an armoir that was mine as a baby that holds all of Kinley's dresses

The top drawer is pj's. The next drawer is matching "sweat" outfits - like the carters ones and a stack of onesies. The next drawer is jeans and nicer pants, long sleeve onesies and long sleeve shirts and a few sweaters. I don't hang much. His socks are in a basket on the changing table. I have boxes of the next size up and put those in the bottom two drawers so I keep the different sizes separate.

His closet has stackable open bins with his shoes (I already have liek the next 4 sizes!) and blankets.

I hang almost everything in the closet for both girls. Only panties, socks, and pajamas go in drawers. I mainly buy the girls outfits where the pants/skirts go with a coordinating shirt from the collection. So I hang the bottoms with clips on the hanger and then put the shirt over it. If they have multiple coordinating shirts from that outfit collection then I hang those next to them. Dresses are all hung up as well. Any clothes that are not part of a coordinating outfit (individual shirts/pants that I might buy) are hung in the front of the closet with pants hung first and then shirts. And everything is hung by color order and then sleeve length.

DH knows he can just grab a hanger and the whole outfit is there that matches. And the individual pieces are things like khakis and jeans, which go with pretty much any of the individual tops.

I don't really buy ahead in the next sizes up that often, but when I do I usually put them in a storage container in the closet that is labeled with the sizes in the bin.

I have been meaning to ask this question for MONTHS!! lol But just out of curiosity really...I think my procrastination is showing. >_< hehe

I don't bother to fold Cade's clothes--I just cram them in his dresser (& yet, somehow they never look wrinkled when he wears them idk how that works, lol). Top drawer--PJs, 2nd drawer--shirts/onsies, 3rd drawer--pants, 4th drawer--one piece outfits.

His socks n Babylegs are in a drawer on a set of plastic drawers. That's also where his bibs, cloth face wipes, & burp rags are (even though I haven't used them in a long time, they're making a re-appearance since he keeps drooling n spitting up since he broke his teething necklace n i still have yet to remake it).

Oh, I have clothes that were given to us that are still too big for Cade in a big bag shoved way back under his crib. That's also how i'm storing his outgrown clothes that i'm keeping for the very distant future, lol
