During the weekend I did some cleaning really going-in, to get things done to beat daylight savings time, because these days seem to move at hyper speed! I know that the next few weeks of March before Easter are full of events and school activities. I had to really get some things off of my to-do list and create a functional to-done list. I realized that order is so important, and having things in order in my household is a pinnacle to create a healthy environment for my family. Cleaning the oven, folding and hanging laundry, mopping and sweeping the floors, deep cleaning the bathrooms, and taking a few breaks in between to create some fresh meals so we could save a few coins by not paying for food to eat out or order in over the weekend.
And Girl, whether it is getting ready for a new season in life with my children it is in my best interest to have order in the home, that will help to center each individual in the family. I believe that we all need a space to get away from the rest of the world to humble ourselves and be in a place of abundant gratitude for all the things that are in the present, as we are moving towards a brighter future. My children seem to be growing like weeds (literally) I cannot keep up with their shoes, pants, and shirts sizes these days. I love this time of year, when I can introduce new clothing brands and long-term items that they grow into as they develop from one life stage to the next amazing growth spurt!
I have come to the conclusion that they seriously grow in their sleep and when they come home from school. One of my biggest goals each Spring is to clean and organize my children’s closet. The biggest strategy for our family is to be a blessing to someone else in the community, so after I sort through all of their clothes, we give them away to a local charity in our neighborhood. Sometimes the Spring is just that time to grow and develop, and to give back to others in the process, which helps to teach my children the value of giving and receiving, and not to take anything for granted in life.
7 Ways to Spring Clean Your Kids Closet
1. Collect kid’s laundry from the hamper, and all of the dresser drawers:
Take the time to search under the bed for any missing clothing, below the closet door where the clothes should be hanging, and in the hidden corners of your kid’s room.
2. Wash everything:
I love to consult my favorite social media platform Pinterest to learn how to easily remove unwanted stains and stinks from clothes.
3. Clear a major spot on the floor:
Avoid the thought of thinking that I can use my child’s bed to begin the sorting process of clothing in their room. The floor is the best place to organize freshly laundered clothing for the season.
4. Pick up any random clothing from around the house:
Look for things that do not fit anymore, or won’t be worn again until next year.
5. Sort and put clothes in a massive heap:
The number of piles depends on the ones that I plan to keep, toss, donate, consign, hand down, store for next year.
6. Return to your kids room:
Make sure that you have cleaned the closet from top to bottom, and the space is totally empty without any clothes still hanging on hangers or have fallen on the floor.
7. Make trips to the garage or the front door:
I think that by this time all clothing items will be put in proper bags and ready for the donation center and friends. I am super excited that I am done, now on to the next kid!
