Open and Closed Storage

Fold clothes in short stacks, both to prevent wrinkling and to keep from rifling through big stacks to find what you're looking for. Buy lined baskets for clothes – that way delicate clothes won't be snagged by rough edges. Searching for your kid's favorite shirt can make any parent crazy – by assigning each child their own laundry basket, they'll learn responsibility and take some of the stress off of you.

Mesh and wire baskets are terrific for sports equipment, sturdy shoes and toys. Measure the space below hanging clothes to determine what size baskets you can use to maximize that space, but keep in mind that you might not want stinky soccer shoes stored under delicate dresses.
