Getting Your Kid's Closet Ready for Back to School ~ #GameOn #CartersAtKohls


Summer is almost over and back to school is fast approaching. We share some tips on how to get your kid's closet ready for back to school, while introducing some new clothing from Carter's available at Kohl's.


I'm going to be honest with you, I LOVE back to school shopping and I love both Kohl's and Carter's. Growing up, going back to school shopping was the highlight of actually going back to school. It mean an entire new wardrobe and I just love clothes. Madison, the baby of the family, starts Kindergarten in just a few short weeks, but her closet is a mess. Madison has more clothes than anyone in my household. Not so sure how it all happened, but there are even clothing with tags still attached, still not worn, but are now too small for her. With a new school year approaching, I wanted to get her ready for back to school with an entire new wardrobe, but in the meantime I needed to clean out her closet. So how do you get your kids closet ready for back to school? I'm going to share with you how I get it done.


Set a schedule. 
While it depends on how big your child's closet is, it will more than likely take a few hours to get it reorganized. Set aside a day or a few hours of a day to get it all done.

Get your child involved. 
While your child may not want to do the work, letting them know that they will be getting a brand new wardrobe might get them in the mood. You can also offer an incentive as well for younger children and praise them for doing a good job. To make it fun, let them put on a fashion show, this will allow you to see what fits and what doesn't.



Sort through clothing. 
Take everything out of the closet, don't leave a single thing behind. This is your time to sort through and evaluate what you want to keep, donate or place in the trash. Store clothing that your child may grow into containers, and put away seasonal items that will not be used.

Make a list of what you need. 
Once you've gotten rid of what you don't want, it's now time to go back to school shopping for new items. Kohl's has always been one of my favorite place to shop and the Carter's brand has been one of my favorite when it comes to children's clothing. As a matter of fact, they were one of the first piece of clothing Madison had against her skin as a newborn. Their selection is always age appropriate and I feel good knowing that I'm getting value for my money.




Get new hangers.
Madison's closet was filled with baby hangers, but she's now grown up, so I decided to get her new hangers. I purchase plastic hangers since they're not only affordable, kids can also use them to slide their clothing on and off easily.

Organize.
To make it easy for your child to get dressed, organize your child's closet by type, such as all tops, pants, dresses etc., in one spot, using a label which you can purchase separately, or if you're handy make your own. You can also keep matching outfits together making it even more accessible.




Don't forget the maintain.
Keep your little one's closet in tip top shape by maintaining it. Get rid of too small clothing as soon as they become too small, and remember to place clothes in their designated section. Keep a hamper near by so that your little one will not place their dirty laundry in their closet and once a week, go through to make sure everything is in order.




Whether you're shopping for new clothing for back to school or because your little one has outgrown their clothing and you just need a new wardrobe, be sure to check out Kohl's. Before I went in-store shopping, I took a look online at what Carter's had to offer at Kohl's so I could plan my shopping trip. Carter's has a great selection for both boys and girls from size 0-8, and I love the fact that I can mix and match my choices. This way I can have quite a few outfits while only purchasing a few pieces. They are very affordable so I never feel like I'm breaking the bank.



There is a 40% - 50% off Carter's Playwear sale from 8/4 – 8/20. Shoppers can also use the BTS10 code to get $10 off $50 spent on the back to school categories (which includes Carter’s clothing).

  3. This is great advice and we love Kohl's here, too. I have to start school clothes shopping probably int he next week or so here. I did get supplies, new backpacks and lunch bags. But now clothing is my next step. So truly appreciate your list and definitely going to try to take your advice :)

  5. I remember the days of sorting through clothing for back to school season. Being that I have always had a small budget and before blogging had no idea where to get the best deals, the kids had a lot of hand me downs. Now that we can shop for each child this year I love the idea of getting the boys at least to clean out their closets and make a list of their needs. I know my middle is all about dressing fancy-ish this year with button up shirts and nice jeans. I will give a look at some of these ideas that your daughter is wearing for my niece, as she needs us to help anyway we can for back to school!

  6. I love all her outfits. This idea is so great, so when the time comes that you'll be so busy, you could simply pull out one of these.

  7. Goodness, your daughter is a great model! My kids aren't in school yet, but I'll keep these tips in mind when they start.

  8. When my daughter was younger she wore nothing but the Caters brand! They have the most affordable clothing, that lasts, and always super cute!

  9. Cleaning out my sons closet is a good 5 or 6 hour ordeal because he needs to try on everything to see what stays and goes. It is great to involve the kids because then they take ownership.

  10. Great advice! I always kind of liked back to school shopping too. It's even better when there are some discounts!

    ReplyDelete
  11. We always shop at Khol's for the kids clothes. They have such great bargains and the quality cannot be beat.

  12. I love your daughters style! She is absolutely gorgeous and would look good in anything of course! But these outfits look great. My niece's bedroom always looks like a bomb has hit it so i'll send these over to my sister as a not so subtle hint haha!

  16. These are so cute! This was my first year doing back to school and it was so much fun! My daughter was so excited to get all her new clothes.

  17. Such great advice. I love all of her outfits! Before we would go shopping we would pull out all the prior years fall clothes that we weren't sure were still going to fit and had a try-on party. That would let us know where we needed to start as far as gathering new things. Especially in the jeans department. Sometimes we had to start all over, sometimes we had a few pants and shirts (because we bought them a few sizes bigger the previous year) that we could mix and match with new. Shopping off season sales racks was a huge saver too.

  18. These are really great tips! I need to try these!

  19. This is such a smart list. Prepping before the school year starts can help you get off on the right foot. It's better to plan ahead then try and play catch up later.

  23. These are all awesome tips for back to school shopping. Organizing the closet first before heading out would help a lot in getting only the stuff we need so we stick to a budget.
