Just wondering what the best "system" is to store baby clothes. We plan on having more children, but we are running out of room keeping the "old" baby clothes. We currently have them in plastic boxes in closets and in the garage, but space is getting so tight. AND now I even have people giving me their hand me down clothes (which is great, but I have nowhere to put them). What does everyone else do? I heard someone say try to roll up the clothes that they take less space in a box, is that true?

I don't know how to get them take less space, but I do know that labels on boxes mentioning both age of baby and season of clothes are essential.

I use bins as well and then label them with the size of the clothes. But I know what you mean, it takes up a lot of space. I think rolling the clothes up does give you more space in the bin and you can fit a lot more clothes in it then! I like the vacuum bag system-we do that with our seasonal clothes and never though of doing that with my child's! This allows us to put our clothes that we aren't using under the bed . . . I know not an ideal place for storage but it is out of sight, out of mind!!

Why don't you try one of them vacuum bag systems? Put as many clothes as you can in them and then suck all the air out with the reverse function on your vacuum cleaner. This flattens the bag down to next to nothing and also keeps the bugs out! You'll save twice as much room with this system
