Make your twins closet fun and functional with these 5 simple tips.

It’s a Saturday morning, and for a split second I’m wishing that my mother had been a helicopter parent so that she could help me arrange the twins closet where they keep their clothes, lol.

While everyone else was going hurray! last night, I was quiet. The weekend has arrived. Nebert, my husband, stayed up all night to watch over the children. While he attempts to read through a blog post that explains how to make it through the sleep regression phase, his eyes are wide open.

When I unlocked the closet that belonged to our twins, my mind was about to explode. The closet is a complete disarray. Once more, perhaps it’s high time that I worked out how to maintain the twins’ closet in an ordered manner. For the sake of ensuring that they continue to sleep, I have no alternative but to keep my rapid, anxious breathing at a low volume.

When it comes to organizing your twins’ clothing, do you ever get the feeling that you just can’t get a handle on things? Are you irritated by the fact that you can never find your socks and that your closet is always causing you to get worked up? On the internet, I find that many new mothers of twins are going through phases that are strikingly similar to mine.

After some trial and error, I was eventually able to figure out how to organize and store the clothing for my twins.

This article is your ticket out of a cluttered closet, unproductive time, and pent-up worry that you’ve been carrying around.

How do you the organize twins closet and store their clothes?

Organizing twins’ clothing is a tiring experience for most parents. First, the clothes, especially for infants and babies, are too tiny to stay in place. Second, it’s easy for them to get lost in the sea of stuff in the nursery

To help you avoid lost outfits and mix-ups, here are five twin clothing organization tips.

1) One hanger for each set of look-alike outfits

Pairing outfits that you like your twins to dress in is crucial for saving time. Instead of browsing through the closet or searching through drawers, put the identical outfits on the same hanger. It will save you a considerable amount of time and make dressing your two babies less of a hustle.

2) Different color hangers for their separate cloths

Some outfits are for sharing, while others are for an individual twin. Things like personal gifts and different sizes are to be kept separate. To avoid the mix-up, try using a different color for the hangers you use for each twin’s clothes. 

3) Have an outgrown bin/box

It’s hard to stay up to pace with your baby’s development. One minute, their shirts are fitting, while the next, they can’t fit their heads in. It’s still a phenomenon most parents are trying to come to terms with. 

Sort through their clothes every couple of months, dropping what doesn’t fit into the outgrown box. Place the bin where it’s easy to drop the clothes the moment your twins outgrow an outfit.

4) Use clear storage bins for the next size 

Instead of putting the next sizes in the attic or basement where it’s hard to get them, use clear storage bins. Mark the bins with their sizes and the type of clothes stored in them. It’s crucial that you sort through the bins every couple of months or when the seasons change. 

Sorting through ensures that you don’t buy clothes and items that you already own, saving you money. One storage bin can hold clothes for three to six months, six to nine months, and so on.

5) There’s more space on walls and behind the nursery doors

Are your twin clothes not fitting in the closets and drawers? What about utilizing the space on the walls and behind the nursery doors? As long as it’s safe and not easy for your twins to reach, there is a lot of room to use.

Use extra hooks, nursery organizers, and hang in the wall baskets to store itty bitty items like socks, bibs, hair ties, and more while paired up. 

Don’t be afraid of letting go 

For your twins’ clothing, less is more. Donating the outfit your twins outgrew six months ago is not dumping the memories of them as babies. It doesn’t mean you are a bad mother or inconsiderate of your baby’s milestones. 

Giving away hand-me-downs from friends and relatives is not being rude or ungrateful. It means you are creating a more organized nursery and, in turn, a happier home and a less frustrated mom.
