Christina's Corner // How to Fold Clothes to Maintain an Organized Closet

Hello everyone and welcome to another week in Christina’s Corner! We often discuss the Modular Closet’s accessories or systems but what’s the point of having an organizational system if you don’t utilize it properly? So, today we are going to talk about my best tips for neatly storing clothes, specifically in a kid’s closet. 

I Couldn’t Do This Alone!

In the video attached to this blog post, you will notice that I had a lovely assistant. Ava McClure and her twin sister Alexis were a huge help in filming this series. They graciously allowed me to use their closet to demonstrate. 

The Struggle is Real!

When you have kids, sometimes it can be a bit of a struggle to keep their closets cleaned and organized, even if you have a Modular Closet system. Kids just don’t care about cleanliness as a general rule, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t learn to be organized. It just may take a little practice and patience. I have learned in my years working on organizational projects with kids that they love to help and be a part of the process.

If you encourage your kids to be involved and teach them where things go in the closet, they may surprise you and become mini organization gurus. 

Keep it Simple.

We focused mainly on folding pants and leggings in the video and I really think that this is one of the easiest things that you can teach a kid to do. The technique that I use is simple and when you’re done, they will be able to see all of their pants instead of stacking them on top of each other. This can help them learn where certain items of clothing go when they are putting them away and also give them a sense of independence when picking out their clothes.

Building a Foundation is Key. 

They may not be able to reach the top shelves or even fully understand how to fold yet, but if you start by giving them little tasks like putting their shoes away, then you build a foundation for organization. 

Don’t Put Too Much Pressure on Them.

Of course, no closet needs to be perfect, especially not a kid’s closet. All I am saying is that I don’t think we give our kids enough credit. They are capable of learning how to be neat and how to clean up after themselves. You can even use a label maker or picture cards to help your kids learn how to keep their spaces organized.

I Want To Hear From You!

How do you help your kids keep their closet organized? Do you have systems in place to help them? Are you at a total loss and need help? You can always email me at and I will gladly give you some guidance.
