We have been busy getting our house back in order after a crazy summer. I needed to come up with some back to school ideas for organizing the kids and our new schedules. I knew one area we needed to work on was our morning routine. This year we decided to make a drawer for the younger kids to hold each of the school weeks outfits. I know this is not a new concept, but we needed a better plan of action at our house this year. Last year we tried hanging them in the closet…but that didn’t seem to work for us very long. My kids seem to forget how to hang up their clothes for some reason. Do your kids suffer from the same problem? So this year I decided we need to have a spot in their dressers for their school week outfits.
My kids are really excited about this new method. And I actually have hope that this one will stick. We have been refilling the drawer when the kids put their laundry away for the week. I have been helping them this first little while so that they can know what to do and what shirts and pants/shorts make a good combination. This is really going to save me some headaches this year when dealing with a certain child’s dressing habits. And hopefully it will save us some precious time in the early morning before school rush. And in case you missed it, I also like to organize the kids home lunch routine that I shared last year.
What do you do at your house to beat the early morning chaos?
