{five minute friday} Coat Closet Rod Dividers

A few weeks ago we finished the organized makeover of our coat closet. It's went from a sad combination of overstuffed and underutilized, to a super functional space with room for the whole family, plus a lot of bonus storage. 

And now, thanks to one final, quick tweak, I can officially call this closet organizing project complete!

Adding an adjustable second row of hanging space for the boys' coats - down at their level - has been a game changer. But there was one thing I failed to take into account... the boys are very similar in size, and have several matching jackets, which was making it a bit confusing, for us and for them.

The solution was a very simple one - dividers labels! All I had to do was print two labels onto sticker paper, cut them out, and attach them to plastic clothing rod dividers.

These closet rod dividers {affiliate link} are available for $.99/each at The Container Store, or in larger quantities for less on Amazon {affiliate link}. So not only did this project only take me 5 minutes... it also cost me just $2. Talk about bang for your organizing buck!

Now everyone in the family knows at a quick glance which blue fleece jacket belongs to which boy, and we can avoid the last minute, on-the-way-out-the-door-coat-swap when we realize that they are wearing one another's coats.

This is such a simple, easy, and cheap solution - I just don't know why I didn't think of it in the first place. After wall, we've been using this same method to keep track of different sizes of clothes in the boys' bedroom closets since the day Beckett was born.
