It’s back to school time! While I’m excited for the return to a more regular routine, it also means back to overseeing homework, packing lunches, and making sure the favorite shirt is clean.
One way to avoid arguments in the morning about what your child is wearing to school is to use an outfit sorter. It hangs from the rod in the closet and provides a slot for each day of the week. Your child chooses their outfits for the week ahead of time, maybe on Sunday (or the night before) and puts everything into the slot. Then in the morning it is so easy to grab the clothes and get dressed!
Not only does this pre-planning help alleviate some of the morning stress, it also teaches your child to be more independent. It also helps you both find out if the favorite shirt is in the wash, avoiding last minute frustration.
Here are a few examples of clothing organizers:
