First activity was to take all of little one's clothes to the living room, including those being unpacked from storage while the renovation was going on.
Monday: We seperated by size and tried on all the 4t, 5t and 4-6 sizes. Wow, we have lots to put together for boxes on ThredUp. Yea!; because we need swaps! If you are not familiar with Thredup, check it out. It's an online swap meet, consignment sale and yard sale in one place.
Tuesday: We took the clothes that still fit and seperated by type (hanging items vs in the dresser). Then each stack of hanging clothes were seperated by color. I just love an organized closet. Little one helped seperate the items into color stacks. Items that went into the dresser were seperated into 4 piles, one for each drawer. Little one wanted to label the drawers so we got out the labeler and she typed them up. Okay, she hit the print button after I typed them!
Wednesday: Last day of organizing. Good thing too! Bill was getting a bit antsy over the clothes piled in the living room on every available space! Anyway we took the color piles of hanging clothes and seperated out the dresses and dance apparel for the top rung of the closet. Then little one took all of the rest of the items and hung them on the lower rung. She chose the order of the colors!
So what did we learn this week:
- Organizing a closet is hard work
- Little one needs new winter clothes and she needs to stop growing.
- Who knew knowing numbers and colors could be so practical!
