Michaels room isnt that big so he doesnt have a big dresser (didnt want to take up floor space where he could be playing) but his changing table is attached to his crib and it has two drawers so thats where we keep his bottoms, socks and sweaters. His closet is really deep so i think pretty soon we'll be getting him one of those plastic storage things with the drawers instead. Since he's not changing sizes so often we're accumulating more and more in each size so the 2 drawers arent really cutting it anymore. We hang up all shirts and jammies, jammies with pants i hang up with the shirts. Shoes usually hang out in the closet or just by the door with everyone else's

Lily and Vi share a room and their closet is fairly big. It's 3 doors long and I have 2 wardrobe things I bought from Amazon in it. One for each girl, plus a hamper between the 2 in the middle. The wardrobes have 2 rods (one on top, one on bottom), and then 4 shelves down the side. I took pics of Vi's even though it's a bit messy right now and most of her clothes are in the laundry. But it should give you an idea of what I do. All pajamas, panties and socks are folded into a dresser (Lily has 3 drawers and Vi has 3), but everything else is in the closet. Oh, and shoes are kept in baskets by the garage door.

Top rod is shirts and matched outfits (ie: shirts/skirts that she only wears together). When everything is in there, it's pretty packed but I order it by color and then by sleeve length within each color category usually. The bottom rod is pants, skirts and dresses:

The shelves are supposed to be leggings on the top shelf, then cardigans and sweaters, then coats/hats, then the bottom is just extra stuff. DH messes it up every time, so it's a bit of a jumble right now.

thanks! i also figured when we have a second kid in the same room we'll have to add another hanging shelf too... but then if i do that (down the road) i might run into the clothes hitting the plastic thing, so then i dont know, lol.

i also need a better place to put diapers as i get more, sigh

Organize? Ha! We don't have organization! When it comes to anything laundry related I am awful! IF I hang things its just shirts (but most of the time they lay in a pile on the guest bed which is in peytons room). All bottoms and pjs go in a dresser drawer. Socks go in a drawer in the changing table attached to the crib. Like I said tho I'm really.bad about putting clean laundry away and it will stay on the guest bed forever!

Thank you Quantum_Leap for my fabulous signature!!!

Kolbie's dresser has 4 drawers - top is diapers (if they get put away) and socks, then jammies, shirts, and pants. Dresses and sweaters end up stacked on top because I'm often too lazy to hang it all back up. Of course most of the time, like Shea, things are unlikely to be put away. I'll leave clean stuff in the hamper and all the dirty stuff will be piled on the floor

Everything gets hung up except socks and pajamas. Their clothes are hung up by outfit and grouped by brand. I try and make it very obvious for the mornings that DH gets them dressed...

I only hang dress shirts and sweaters. Jed has a pretty large dresser. Top drawer is pj's, next is short sleeve shirts, the next is long sleeve, than a drawer of pants.

We have an organizer in the closet that holds socks and shoes.

I don't hang much of Julia's clothes either...she has a big wardrobe that holds all her little pants, shirts and sleepers.
