Day 8: Kids Dresser and Closet

Updated: Jun 19, 2020

Hi, friends! Welcome back to our Organize Your Entire Home in 20 Days series!

You have done such a good job cleaning out and tidying up so far! We've worked through the entryway, coat closet, your kitchen cabinets and counters, the pantry, living room and the dining room!

Now that we have tidied up the common areas of the house, we’re going to start going into different bedrooms.

First bedroom up, your kids! Today we will be focusing on the kids dressers and closets.

Today would be a great day to get your children involved in the decluttering process so they can help you make decisions and they can start to build good habits on keeping their spaces tidy.

Start them out young!!

Keep in mind their age at this point. Younger kids will have a harder time getting rid of things, even if they don't really care about these items. This applies to clothes and toys.

For example, we had a client who's daughter loved an old t shirt. It no longer fit her, so in order for her to keep this shirt and continue to enjoy it, we framed it! Now she can look at it and remember it versus it taking up space and gathering dust on the shelf.
