Relieve Back to School Stress by Revamping Your Kids' Closet Storage Space
Back to school season can be both exciting and overwhelming! As the routines of summer come to a close you have to prepare yourself for the chaos that often comes with the first few weeks of the new school year. One of the biggest issues during a school-day morning is getting your kids dressed and ready for the day. By investing time in organized closet storage and routine for your kids you can alleviate much of the morning stress that comes with the new school year.
The first step in back-to-school prep and closet organization is to assess your child's current closet storage space. Take all clothing items out of the old closet and have your child try them on. Anything that does not fit should be sorted into a donate or discard pile while all the rest of the items should be put into a keep pile.
The next step is to define the area or closet space that you and your child will be using throughout the school year. Take any and all measurements while the space is empty of all clothes and other items. This will be hugely important in helping you choose the best custom closet solution for the space and for your needs. Check out our ideas gallery for some inspiration.
The last step is to invest in bins for your child’s closet organization. Kids are not usually concerned with making sure that everything is put away perfectly. By using a closet organizer bin system for your child’s toys and other items you will be ensuring that everything will be put away. Make sure to use labels and clear containers to help you and your child clearly and easily see where everything is supposed to go.
