Tiny twin clothes can be the worst! But I'm here to show you how simple and fun it can be to do their laundry, fold their teeny tiny twin clothes and keep an organized closet!
Organizing your twins closet the easy way!
When my husband and I bought our rambler, we knew once we got pregnant that the room that would become our nursery wouldn't have a closet because we didn't want to put our baby in one of the basement bedrooms. We had no idea that baby was going to turn into BABIES and that we'd need double the closet space!
So my husband and I headed down to IKEA and bought this nice closet wardrobe that is actually in the room next to theirs. At first it was weird to me to not have their clothes in ‘their' room. But to be honest, I couldn't be happier with where it is! I've been able to do laundry and put their clothes away during naps and bedtime without fearing that I'm going to wake them up or leaving them on the kitchen table until nap is over. (Apparently thats where all the cool kids fold their laundry these days! Ha!)
I was worried as they got bigger that I would need more space but I'm pretty certain I'm more orgazinzed now on what we actually need for clothes that even though they're getting bigger as each moment passes, the key to it all is how you fold, hang and staying on top of only keeping what they wear in their closet and selling the rest on SameSame Kids!
Below you'll find a few examples of how I make the most of our closet space just by how I fold and hang their matching clothes!
Ps. If you're not a matching mom, no worries! You can always fold and hang outfits together to save time and space, even if they dont match!

I dont think I'll ever stop loving one piece jammies. There is something so adorable about their tiny little bodies all snuggled up.
Lay out jammies flat – I apologize for the crumpled photo, it was the only way I was getting it all in the picture!
Fold in both sleeves one at a time so they lay flat and are within the width of the jammies
Fold legs all the way up to the arms
Fold bottom 1/3 of the way
Fold another 1/3
Wa-Laa! Stack and put away!
Use 1 hanger!
One of the best things is doubling up hanging clothes, you save more space and your closet will be so much more organized this way! Plus its way easier to hang one over the other than you think it would be! Even with hoodies and bulky sweatshirts!
