|There is no way they can get away with their messy habits in my room!|
|I am so thankful for this extra storage space.|
With six boys I have lots of hand-me-downs for the little boys. My four year old was overwhelmed with too many choices each day and most of his clothes ended up on the floor. So, I paired Isaac and David's clothes down to four play outfits, four nice outfits, and four jammies each. When I put the clean clothes away I stack them in outfits so Isaac can grab an something to wear without digging through piles of pants and shirts. This has kept the mess to a minimum. My older children dress the baby so it is easier for them to find an outfit for David each morning and I don't have to put clothes back on shelves every day.
|Little clothes don't take up much room!|
|I even have room to keep a box in which to collect hand-me-downs to give away.|
Having the girls' clothes downstairs has given me more laundry to do, so they get to help me with the folding. The older boys(8 and up) do their own laundry. Our house has laundry hook ups upstairs and down so my hubby bought the children their own washer and dryer. I have a set of stacking front loaders downstairs which I keep busy every day. Having the extra set has made laundry so much easier! With a large family it is almost a necessity to have two sets.
