Hi, I’m Leanne from Organize and Decorate Everything. I’m happy to be visiting at Ask Anna today. I love all of Anna’s brilliant tips and ideas, as I know you do. My blog is full of great organizing ideas too so stop by and say hi!
By planning your kids clothes for the whole week or at least the night before, mornings go so much smoother.
I made this easy system by using a few simple crafting pieces and an over the door hanger with hooks for everyday of the week.
I bought these thin pieces of wood at Hobby Lobby (4 to a package) and then used my crop-o-dile to punch a larger hole to thread the twine through.
Then I used scrapbook paper that matches Emilee’s room to cover the wood label. I use mod podge to adhere the paper, but as you know sometimes you can get a few bubbles. I always use a little roller to roll over the paper to smooth out any little air bubbles. It works perfectly.
I used stickers to mark the days of the week on each label.
Then I punched a hole through the paper in the same place as the label hole and added twine so it could be attached to the door hanger.
Once the labels were tied on, Emilee could pick out her clothes for the whole week. She can also add accessories like belts, necklaces or scarves to the top hook to go with each outfit.
This is another system I use for the boys. I bought these hooks in the hardware area. I hang 2 options of clothes on the hooks. That way they can have a part in deciding what they wear but you know it’s appropriate for school. I just add another outfit before bedtime for the next day so they always have 2 options.
How do you plan and organize your kids school clothes?
