Are you trying to figure out how to organize baby clothes? I think that is something that a lot of new moms have to deal with, especially if you are lucky enough to have other moms to hand baby clothes down to you.

When I first found out we were expecting twins, I had no idea how we were going to able to afford enough clothes for both of them!
Two baby showers later, I had more baby clothes than I knew what to do with. I then found myself struggling with trying to find somewhere to organize everything.
I received as gifts many different sizes of baby clothes, from newborn all the way to toddler. Friends and family members who found out we were expecting also gave us many nice hand-me-downs.
I quickly realized I wasn’t going to have to buy any clothes for our boys for quite some time! After looking over all the clothing, I decided it would be easiest to organize the clothes by sizes.
I first washed everything and sorted all the clothing by sizes. I then went to Walmart and bought some very inexpensive large plastic storage containers to store larger sizes.
The boys have two dressers in their bedroom. I filled one dresser with newborn size clothes, and the other dresser with size 3-6 months.
I then labeled three plastic storage containers 6-9 months, 9-12 months, and 18-24 months. After sorting all the clothes I organized the storage containers on a shelf in the bedroom closet.
Then whenever I got new clothing I could go right to the storage container with the correct size of baby clothes. This system made it very easy for me to see what I had on hand and what I still needed to buy.
