Imagine a huge mountain of clothes. That's what I had on the floor of our living room for a good part of the day. I really should have taken a picture. I was sitting right in the middle of it, sorting, and sorting, and sorting. What can I say? My girls just keep on growing and they're about at a size change...so I had to empty all the drawers of too small clothing, then fill them up again with the next size up.
Of course, I also had to organize all the too small stuff into boxes categorized by size, and make sure they were all labeled and easy to find for the next girl who will join our family. No, I'm not pregnant. But we do want more children and the way it looks right now, I think we're pretty good at making girls! :-)
A few times during the sorting I got a little overwhelmed. I just sat and looked all around me at all the clothes, thinking "this is just too much stuff!" But the truth is I am very thankful that my daughters have all of these nice clothes to wear. We have been blessed to be given most of this and really haven't had to buy much for the girls yet at all.
You can see my baby clothes organizing system in the above photos. I have tried the trash bag thing, but I really like this one better. I like to find creative ways to reuse stuff around the house, so what better way than repurposing diaper boxes?
I just fold the flaps like so, then label, and you're good to go!
