Clothing storage

What do you do with all those wonderful things that your older child has outgrown, but that the next child probably won’t need for 2 more years?  Or what about the hand-me-downs, consignment store and garage sale finds that are too cute to pass up but you won’t need until next summer?

My super easy storage solution is Banker boxes.  You can purchase them in 10 packs from any office supply store.  They are sturdy, stack well and have their own lids so you aren’t having to tape them shut.   If I am out shopping and see a too-good-to-pass-up deal for next season I can open the box and add the item without having to re-tape it.  I write the size, gender and season(if needed) on the outside of the box and store them on a basement shelf of in the closets.

One thought on “Clothing storage

  1. Great idea, I love the LIDS. That’s perfect for me. I use these plastic containers for pretty much the same thing, but they are a pain to get something in and out of without taking down the whole box to open it.

    And I bet your banker box idea would be cheaper than what I have used too. Thanks!
