Organizing Dressers: Works for Me Wednesday

25 06 2008

Works for Me Wednesday!
Is it called a dresser or a bureau?
Either way, life is nice when it’s organized and you can find what you’re looking for. Organization is particularly a challenge for kids’ clothes because they seem to be all over the place.
Well, little labels work for us! I just took a slip of paper and taped it to the inside of the drawer to mark the locations of shirts, onesies, pants, etc. They would look nicer if I had a label maker, but scraps certainly do the job. Now, dad can put away toddler clothes without having to ask where things go. And as new clothes sneak in, it’s a reminder to put or give away clothes that are too small.
When our toddler is older, I’m planning to put larger labels on the outside of drawers so she can practice reading and putting away her clothes!

Great idea! That’s funny how you mention that the labels are also for your hubby so he knows where to put things – perhaps I should label all the cabinets in my kitchen as well! 🙂

I need to do this on my dresser! Actually, this is a great reminder to clean out my dresser. And THEN I can put labels on to remind me to keep it organized.

I also love how this helps everyone stay on the same page as far as where to find things/put things away. Thanks for sharing!

This is a great tip. My kids are not quite to the point where labels will work for them though. Maybe if I drew pictures!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. Mind if I stick around a bit and browse?

Oh thank you for affirming that I am not OCD, (or at least that someone else is with me! :). I’ve been wanting to do this and I felt like it was such a dorky thing to do that I haven’t done it yet- now I’m going to! Thank you for visiting my blog- I love comments!
