Now I know y'all know, I L O V E anything that makes mornings with kiddos just a little bit easier. Preparing my kids clothes for the week has got to be the best "Life Hack" I have learned yet. It takes the guessing and the arguing out of the picture and getting dressed is easy breezy lemon squeezy!! 🍋
It's truly as simple as 1, 2, 3.
1 - Check the weather. We live in Texas, y'all so the weather never can make up his mind. Like this week, for instance, it's 65 one day, 77 the next and then a whopping low of 19˚over the weekend. 🤪 Luckily, it's easy to throw a jacket on or switch a t-shirt out for those truly unpredictable days.
2 - Pick out outfits for every day of the week: top, bottoms, undies and socks! Get your kids involved if they tend to be a little pickier. Once it's picked though - there's no turning back the morning of. (Remember when I said it takes the fighting out)... I tell my boys it's already out, you're wearing it! They recall our Sunday evening convos about what they're wearing for the week and quickly oblige W I N! 🙌🏼
3. Place each outfit in an organizer labeled with each day of the week. We use these and LOVE it. I have one for each kiddo and ours are labeled Monday - Friday & WEEKEND. This works best for us to make the most of our available space but there are plenty of larger (&smaller) options out there! There are tons of cute options for labels for printing here 😁
I can't wait for you to try this method - it'll gain you a few extra moments of quiet time, maybe a few minutes of sleep, or an extra sip of that coffee while it's still hot!
