A couple of weeks ago, we had a guest speaker at MOPS. She was a home organizer and she gave us tons of tips for getting organized.
Um, I need her help at our house. Desperately.
But since hiring a home organizer isn’t in our budget at the moment, I was super excited to soak in her advice at our meeting. Lots of her ideas were things I am either already doing or know I should be doing. She had a few awesome new-to-me ideas too. Here’s one that I have adopted and am loving:
Use a hanging closet organizer to hold your kids’ outfits for the entire week.
So on Sunday, I plan our Week’s activities and pull outfits for each kid. And I even pull pajamas for each night. Then I drop them in the organizer for each day and voila! One less hassle/decision To make every day.
Love thus simple system for a few reasons.
1. We have old dressers whose drawers stick. The fewer times I have to open/close them, the better.
2. I hate mornings. So the easier our morning routine is, the better.
3. I like feeling organized.
Sometimes the outfits of the day have to be changed at the last minute because of weather or a change of plans, but I’m ok with that. Laundry day is Monday at our house, so sometimes we run out of clothes/pajamas when I set out clothes on Sunday. No biggie, I just add them in as I do laundry on Monday.
Yay for organizational progress!
