Corralling The Chaos

Let’s face it…Kids = Chaos am I right?!

When Adeline started Kindergarten this fall…I knew we were going to have to make sure we made every morning as SMOOTH as we possibly could. Leaving by 7:30 am each morning is a RUSH!

That means lots of PREPPING. And one of my FAVORITE tricks that I have up my sleeve is the dresser box.

I don’t know about ya’ll but looking for outfits in the morning is NOT my cup of tea…

So every Friday after school, Adeline and I sit down and pick out her outfits for the following week.

It’s so fun to see what she chooses & to have that bonding moment.

We have gallon zip locks with her name, the day, and number of the day on the bag. We place her clothes in the bag & put them in her basket in the bathroom closet.

Every morning when she wakes up she heads to the bathroom to get dressed. No fighting over what she wants to wear. No mad dashes around the house to find specific items of clothing. It’s all there, and ready for the week.

Another perk…all the clothes that you have folded…STAY folded in their drawers!! Which is a huge pet peeve of mine!

We also do a box for my four year old as well, because well..see above!

So if you are trying to find a way to corral the chaos…be sure to give this a try!
