We are prime candidates for a minimalist toddler closet!
Soon we will have 4 children in a 10X10 room!
(I’m so excited, and so are they! They love the idea of the baby sleeping in their room with them!)
In preparation, I made some major changes into their closet.
Our old closet was really cute but impractical and definitely NOT a minimalist toddler closet.
The new closet has 9 identical baskets.
- Each Child Has Their Own Toy Basket
- Each Child Has Their Own Clothes Basket
- A Joint Shoe Basket
(The 3 Drawer Dresser has a diaper/cream drawer, joint sock drawer, and joint pajama drawer. Sunday clothes are hung on the child-sized fuzzy hangers, each child has a hook on the left to hang 2 hoodies)
I’ve become very obsessed with hyacinth baskets. Their metal frames are durable, but the hyacinth weave is light-weight enough for the kids to lift easily. (Even though the five-year-old’s toy basket is kept above his head, he can lift it down multiple times a day.)
The kids helped put up the shelving, and they enjoyed filling up their new baskets.
Each child has about 5 play outfits so there was plenty of space.
When we fold clothes I can bring them out to the living room where we are folding together, and the kids can help put their clothes into the baskets.
So that is our new system. It’s not really the classic system you see, but it is working perfectly for us, and I would say that it is minimalist! Toddler closets are a fun project too, and it was fun to have the kids help!
