We're halfway through Back To School Prep Week! Are you feeling more prepared? I'm feeling a little less like a lost sheep, so let's keep going!
This year Mia is attending a school that requires uniforms. Hallelujah to my ears! No debate over what to wear each day. Last year we set up this daily outfit hanger with a "Today I'll Wear..." sign.
Even though we're going to uniforms this year, I think it will still be a perfect solution to making sure we have all the uniform pieces ready for the next day, and to help us avoid a last minute dash to find socks or a sweater in the mornings. Even though there's no guess work on what to wear, she'll still set out clean clothes and whatever accessories the night before to ensure we're set (and that I don't need to do an emergency load of laundry!).
Our boys are only in preschool a couple days a week, but we've found that also setting out their clothes each night helps to cut down on the morning chaos that much more. We find this helpful even on their non-school days since they are creatures of habit and we all need to get out the door on time to get big sis to school M-F.
We have a mini drop zone set up in their shared bedroom that is the holding spot for the next day's clothes.
For those of you that may be dealing with choosing an outfit for school 5 days a week, a system like Jen's where you choose the outfits for the whole week might be your answer.
