DIY Closet Dividers for Back to School

August 6, 2016

School starts Monday!  I’m trying my best to get prepared this weekend.  This weekend will be filled with grocery shopping, ironing and washing hair.  I’m a true believer in laying out school clothes for the week on Sundays.  That way there are no disagreements about what Peyton wants to wear at 6am.   Trust me, it makes life in the mornings a whole lot easier.  This year, I decided to make closet dividers so the outfits can stay organized.  Here’s how I made Peyton’s closet dividers for $2! closet dividers 1 closet dividers 2

I picked up some stickers and foam shapes from Dollar Tree.

I used a quarter to trace a circle in the middle of the foam shape.closet dividers 4 closet dividers 5

Using a pair of scissors, I cut straight up to the circle and around the outline. closet dividers 6

Since space is limited, I decided to abbreviate the days of the week with the stickers.

This cute DIY only took about 15 minutes and turned out so cute.  closet dividers 9

I made something similar for Peyton before she was born to organize all her baby clothes by months.  Since I’m on a roll, I’m going to make some for Harper, but she’s already wearing 24 month clothing.

How do you organize your child’s school clothes?  Do you lay them out at night or pick them out in the morning?  Feel free to pin an image.

    I try to plan my outfits out for the week because it saves soooo much time in the mornings. I love this idea for myself. Might have to make them.

    Now this is smart AND super cute! Love this idea. My little boy is only one but I could do what you suggested and divide by month. I’ve got some hand-me-downs from friends and that would come in handy!

    That’s a really cute idea. Jas wears uniforms to school right now.

    Nifty! Actually I try to lay them out at night for the entire schoolweek. But as my ‘minime’ has a very strong own taste it sometimes collapses. Need I say more? Anyway, love this DIY. Will share it with my Dutch readers (I blog about being pregnant and being a mother above 40)!
