School Uniform Organization Hacks

Our youngest is entering PreK4 this year at “big kid school” with her three older siblings. This means more hand-me-down uniforms … and organizing the closets. Over the last 6 years and 4 kids, I threw some tricks into my bag to bring some chaos to the crazy that it back to school.

Here are my {hopefully} helpful hacks for school uniform organization:

I like to use these hangers for littles. You can store their shorts with the shirt to be worn with the shorts all in one place.

Older kiddos get these space-saving hangers for their bottoms. All the shorts all in a row. All the skirts, all in a row.

I have two different types of hangers for pants. The first is just a regular hanger and I fold the pants in half over the bar. Once cold weather is here to stay for a bit, I pull the same “outfit on one” hack and put all the long-sleeved shirts onto these hangers so all items for those outfits are in one place. The other is this multi-pants hanger WITH the rubberized arms so no pants fall off into the abyss at the bottom of the closet. I like these for my older children.

I love this hanging pocket thingy for small items like socks, belts, bloomers. We can’t confuse our school socks with play socks.

How do you organize your kiddos’ school clothes?

She returned to Acadiana two years ago following her husband’s completion of medical school and residency in Shreveport. After the move, Sarah switched gears from full-time pediatric speech-language pathologist and working mom to full-time stay-at-home mom to her brood. Her current hobbies include “speech-therapizing” her children, re-reading the Outlander series, catching up on her Netflix queue after the kids go to bed, completing XHIT videos at naptime, and taking her medication every morning. She loves and respects the sacredness of motherhood, but sometimes you just have to let go and laugh it out. Motherhood has been the most humbling, and empowering journey she has experienced.
