Doll Collection Organization

Someone was asking a while back when I was posting it on my personal LJ about how, exactly, I have my doll clothes organized, so I figured I'd put this out here for everyone to see.

I am totally aware that this is overly OCD of me, but here it is.

I've got these bins, one for each American Girl:


I used to have smaller bins, and everything fit, but I found that it wrinkled less if I gave it some room to breathe.

Anyway, each doll gets 12 outfits, one for each month. You can see each bin is labeled:


(Hey, it's my handwriting!)

Anyway, this is Kirsten's, since it's all filled out. When it comes time to dress the doll, all you do is look to see what month it is and what outfit she should be wearing. None of these are hard and fast rules -- October can also be Halloween costumes, for example -- but it's one way of sorting out who gets what. I don't even know if this is the best way to do it, but here it is.

  1. That's a really cool way to organize. I don't think I could do mine that way, but I still like it a lot.
