Feb week # 2 - Organization tip

Here's a tip that has saved me a lot of time in the mornings...

When putting your kids laundry away place the clothes in the drawers by outfit. This way you can just grab it and get them dressed quickly. I was organizing their clothes by shirts in one drawer, pants in another, etc, etc... And then I would have to hunt for something to match each. By organizing them by outfit it makes life so easy, especially on school days.


  1. That makes a world of difference. I do that as well. I started doing that about a year ago and now my daughter can pick out her own outfit for the day. Thanks.

  2. I started doing that when I was pregnant with my 3rd and I was approaching the delivery day. I was "nesting" I suppose. And I thought it would make life easier on my husband and parents who would take care of my older girls while I was in the hospital. Then it just seemed to work so well. my 5 yr old was able to grab her clothes in the morning and get dressed (and she matched! :) ). Now with 3 to get ready in the morning, it gives us more harmony in our home. There havebeen days when the laundry is in the baskets and not folded, and nothing in the drawers...those are the days that I appreciate when I am organized.

    Thanks for the comment

  3. That's a great idea. I never heard of that. I can use all the organization tips I can get. Thanks!

  4. I pack for trips this way too...for myself and my husband as well. It helps making sure nothing is forgotten and makes getting dressed a breeze!
