Organizing Cooper’s Closet – One Project at a Time

March 5, 2014

Earlier this week I mentioned that my son is 16 months old and that things are changing around here.  He’s much more active and he’s acquiring alot more stuff!  So I’ve been making some changes to his closet, like putting his newly finished toy box in there and organizing some other things too.

(The Before)

Am I the only one who has a husband who never seems to know where anything is?  To make things easier for him (who am I kidding I did it in hopes he wouldn’t ask me where something was) I decided to buy some plastic bins from the Dollar Store so I can store some of Cooper’s things.

The things I have the most of are clothes that Cooper’s outgrown (once the 2 bins are full I donate them) diapers & wipes (I buy in bulk) and a smaller bin for his shoes.

I made some labels by just pulling an image of stars from the internet (Cooper is obsessed with stars in a major way) and then pulled up the image on PicMonkey and added test to it.  Once I made the label I printed them, cut them to the size and then laminated it.

I simply used 2 sided Command Poster Strips to attach the label to the bins.

The whole project cost about $15.00.  I had everything but the bins.  Organizing doesn’t have to be expensive and I’m fairly certain that even when Cooper has outgrown his diapers I’ll find other uses for the bins and can easily make new labels!

Today’s one of those posts where it’s not this super wow sort of project, it’s pretty simple, the photos could be better.  (Taking photos in a closet is hard people!)  However, I think it’s the little things like this  that makes a house more functional and in turn makes it more of a home!

Speaking of dark closet photos I decided to start taking this online photo course this week!  Photography is a hobby I never thought I’d enjoy as much as I have but I do!

If you’re interested in photography I also have collected quite a lot of information on my Pinterest board labeled Camera.

How do you organize your kids things?  I’m always up for new ideas!

    1. The bins look great. Completely agree that the closet is not a good place to take photos. I’ve been trying to post my closet update for over 6 months but never like how the photos turn out.

    1. I wish Rae’s closet looked this empty. her closet is a catch all for everything else. There is wrapping paper, all board games etc… Thanks for the tips!

    1. Love what you did! Been meaning to do something similar to keep our family and our stuff organized and more accessible. Thanks for the inspiration! Love how you customized the labels!

    1. It’s important to start early with kids and organizing their stuff. My sister-in-law didn’t do that with my niece and now my niece just throws her clothes EVERYWHERE.

      up-to-date and previous technologies, it’s awesome article.

    1. Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my
      iPad and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop,
      just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed
      and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share
      it with someone!

    1. I have been surfing online greater than three hours
      today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.

      It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you probably did,
      the internet will likely be a lot more helpful than ever
      before.

    1. Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging on sites I stumbleupon on a daily basis.
      It will always be useful to read through content from other authors and
      practice something from their sites.

    1. Hi I am so happy I found your blog page, I really found you by mistake, while I was
      searching on Askjeeve for something else, Regardless
      I am here now and would just like to say many thanks for a
      tremendous post and a all round enjoyable blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to go through
      it all at the minute but I have bookmarked it and also added your RSS feeds, so when I have time I
      will be back to read much more, Please do keep up the superb work.

    1. Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
      I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
      The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking
      for something unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    1. Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon every day.

      It’s always helpful to read through articles from other writers
      and use a little something from their websites.

    1. Hi there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after
      browsing through some of the articles I realized it’s new to me.
      Nonetheless, I’m certainly happy I came across it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking
      back often!

    1. Howdy, I do believe your blog might be having browser compatibility problems.
      When I take a look at your site in Safari, it looks
      fine however when opening in I.E., it has some overlapping issues.
      I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up!

      Aside from that, fantastic site!

      You actually know how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
      More people must look at this and understand this side of the story.
      I was surprised that you’re not more popular given that you
      most certainly have the gift.

    1. I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this
