So the day is finally here! It's so nice to see the trees and tulips finally blooming outside! And even though we got away with an insanely mild winter, I am so glad to be done with it! In fact, I'd be fine just springing through to the warm summer temps!
In the meantime, though, there are few housekeeping details that need to be dealt with. Case in point: this was the current state of my guest bedroom just a few days ago:
Yep, you got that right. It's time to break out the bins. Boys' clothes a'plenty in this house. Thankfully I took the time a few seasons ago to purchase enough bins to hold each individual size of clothing so that I know exactly what bin to go to each season. I must say, I can't even IMAGINE having to sort and store clothing by sex and size, so I am abundantly grateful for having ALL boys!! It makes this transition so much easier!
Most of each size can fit into one bin but I have a few sizes grouped together, like sizes 5-7 are in two bins because well, quite frankly, the clothes are BIGGER so they take up more room! I don't separate my kids' clothing by season, just by size. It really does make it so much easier because I can go directly to one bin (or set of bins) and just pull out what I need and then replace it with the opposite season.
So my kids' closets are all set and ready to go for Spring & Summer. And in doing inventory of what they have, I now know that my oldest is pretty much the only one who needs anything new. Although, I do have the tendency to purchase tees and various flip-flops for my kids in the warm weather months.
Because of the mild weather we've had over the winter and now in the past couple of weeks, this is the earliest I ever remember having closets all changed over and completely organized! It does feel good! I am looking forward to some other spring projects in and around the house, too. How is your spring shaping up thus far?
