I have two daughters and they each have a bedroom. They are young (2 and 5) and I often find myself just shoving things back into their closets in the hustle of our daily lives. I tackled their closets during my home reset and it went a lot faster than I anticipated.
Miss. Em's Closet (2 year old)
I pulled everything out and removed anything we no longer use or that she has outgrown. I wiped down shelves and replaced the items.
Miss. E's closet (5 year old)
Miss. E's closet took a little longer, as she is old enough to help and provide opinions. We took everything out. We removed items that Miss. E has outgrown or won't wear. We went through her jewelry box and she donated a few things that she doesn't use. We went through her shoes and "small things jar" (where she keeps her trinkets). She donated a few things and threw away a few things.
Ahhhhh... So much better, right?
- Remove every single thing from the closet.
- Get rid of anything in poor repair, that does not fit, that doesn't get used.
- Wipe the shelves, vacuum the floor.
- Replace items neatly.
