Tip of the Day: Organizing Kids Clothes

clothesPlease tell me I am not the only mother who has a daughter who will change clothes 18 times a day if I let her!   I got this idea from a mom with ten kids.   If she can keep her girl’s clothes orderly, maybe I can too!

Brandi’s tip:

“I started putting their clothes into outfits as I washed them. Underwear, pants, and shirt. All on one nice little hanger. Now all they have to do is take one hanger down and they have all their clothing for the next day. The system works so well, that now I put the boys clothes in outfits in their dresser. Can I just say how much easier it is to reach in and grab an entire outfit, opposed to having to look through drawers to find a shirt, then another to find the pants?!
Yes it takes a bit more time when I am folding laundry, but most of the time I make sure the girls and boys have enough clothes for the week and then I only have to make up the next weeks outfits during the weekend. Which is when I do my major laundry washing anyways. For anyone that feels rushed in the morning try this for a couple of weeks! You’d be surprised at how easy it makes getting everyone dressed and out the door.”

I don’t have the closet space to devote a hangar to each outfit, but I can try folding clothes together.     We’ll see if it makes our mornings any easier.   Let me know if her tip helps any of you!

    You are always full of good ideas. I just have boys so they stick to one outfit a day. Wait a minute what am I thinking, they change all the time because they are alway getting dirty!!

  3. We do this with my kids too. My boys are color blind, and can’t tell if their clothes match, and my daughter is, hmmm, lets call it a creative dresser. I fold the pants and socks into the shirt and put away. Then they grab a package and run!

  5. What a wonderful idea!
    My kids are transitioning to all their clothes hanging up, and this might help us grab outfits faster and with less things falling down.
