Some products don't make a whole lot of sense to me, at first blush - but they seem to meet other people's needs. I'm not sure why you'd want to have a lot of different sizes of baby/toddler clothing hanging in the same closet, unless you have multiple children sharing a closet. (I guess if you got a lot of clothes as gifts, and you have spare closet space, that could explain it.)
Anyway, for those who do have multiple-size-clothes-in-one-closet issues, these dividers might help keep them sorted out. They come in a range of patterns and sizes. [via Apartment Therapy]
There sure must be a demand for this type of product, because there are a number of options. I think it was organizer Tanna Clark who directed me to these dividers. Update on July 18, 2012: I'm no longer finding these dividers.
There's also the omnipresent Baby Buddy Size-It Closet Organizer. [photo from Baby Bungalow] Thanks to organizer Kathleen Luskus for pointing this one out to me.
And then there's the Organized Clothing Divider (OCD) Closet Hangers from Precious Petals Handmade Creations. Update on July 18, 2012: I'm no longer finding these anywhere.
Moving beyond just children's clothing, there are the Simple Division Garment Organizers from organizer Lorie Marrero's Living Order. These organizers come with a choice of labels in both English and Spanish; you can also create your own.
For that department-store look, you can always get these very simple closet rod dividers that you can label with a wax pencil or label maker.
Or you could follow the lead of Ricky Spears, who made his own - so his wife would have an easier time putting away his clothes (and so he could find things more easily). Caroline Armelle also made her own, for her baby's closet.
