Prep for Back to School: Outfit Planning

Pin It

 It's back to school time!  For my family this means an adjustment from relaxed summer mornings to a pretty rigid schedule.  One thing that helps with the chaos is having our outfits pre-planned.  My son? Well he basically grabs a top and a pair of pants and he's good to go.  But for us ladies in the house, sometimes it takes more time.

I made my daughter a set of five clothes pins with the days of the week written in five different colors with five different shapes to help distinguish the difference.

On Sunday nights we plan out five outfits including "choanies" (underwear), and socks or tights.  Basically everything she needs to put on in the morning is hanging on the hanger (the socks are usually tucked into the choanies).

In the morning she just grabs the appropriate hanger and she's ready to get dressed!  She has now requested we make Saturday and Sunday clips.

Planning is the key to a smooth(er) morning!

  1. This is a fantastic idea! Definitely going to implement this with my twins. It will probably help me ensure that I did the laundry in time and I'm not stuck without anything for them to wear! (caught you on SITS!)

  2. I love this idea! There are actually a couple ways I could see using thanks for the tip!
