The following post is from Jason & Jennifer Bruce of New Season Design: Free Printable Labels for Kids’ Clothing Bins!
Our daughter outgrows clothes so quickly. We try on last year’s size each season only to find that half of them don’t fit anymore. While I’m thankful that she’s healthy and growing, I’m ending up with lots of plastic tubs full of her outgrown clothes. We pass them around to several friends and family members before they get donated, so I need a way to keep them organized.
We created these printable labels to help with organization. We use several sizes of plastic tubs (depending on what we have on-hand), so there are two different label sizes.
Simply print them, trim them to the size you want, and mark the size and season of the clothing. Then slip them down into the ends of your clear storage tubs with the size information facing out. You can also tape them to the outside of the tub, covering them with clear plastic packing tape. This will keep them from falling off the tubs and give you a quick visual to help you find the size you’re looking for.

How do you organize off-season and off-size clothing for your kids?
