Totally Organized Tuesdays: Kid's Closet Edition

My boys have spent the past few weeks playing in their closet during naptime instead of ya know napping. We don't have toys in their room so pretty much the only stuff they have to mess with is in their closet. So I thought it would be a good time to get everything organized and move it all up and out of their eye level.
This is Gabe who is taking a nap on his chair, but not before he tore up his room and those trucks are not toys that would be decor from his window sill and don't even ask me how he was able to reach it. Oh and also note that he is not in his bed.
I did have these bins on the bottom shelf but since I had to move them up higher and wouldn't be able to see what was in them, they needed to be labeled.
I didn't have any t-shirt vinyl at home and was too impatient to wait and order some online, so I used regular vinyl and cut it with my silhouette. Are you wondering how I got it to stick?
- I applied the letters on to the fabric bins.
- I saved the backing that I peeled the vinyl off of.
- Placed the paper backing  on top of the letters and then took a low heat iron and pressed it for about 30 seconds.
- Do NOT move the iron back and forth, the letters will move from underneath the paper.
- Be careful not to leave the iron on too long because it will melt a hole in the fabric.

This will not work on something that would need to be washed. This could be removed if you want it to be but it sticks enough to where it won't just fall off. It's not perfect but it works.
Their shoes are at the top. And because we live in Texas I have to keep their summer clothes and winter clothes out at the same time because one day it's 90 and the next day could be 40.
The majority of their books are downstairs in the reading nook of their playroom but we keep some upstairs for bedtime stories.

So there you have it, this is how I "Gabe and Grant proofed" their closet.

Here are some other closets in my home:

I am all about organization. I love how clean and neat this is. I just had to put some of my boys clothes on the top shelf in the closet but I can't tell what is in which bin. I will have to cut some vinyl and label them like you did. Thanks for the great tips. I would love it if you could link this up to our linky party going on right now.

Wow! I'm really impressed and inspired to re-organise my kids rooms.
I love your blog - so many great ideas, so little time!! ;)

Way to be organized! This would save a lot of time compared to digging in one giant bin and hoping it has what you're looking for (which is usually my system...)

When it comes to organizing, no matter what methods you put in place, it's the teens and younger children who can really pose a challenge to you.
