I got so tired of the ‘getting ready’ drama in the mornings, that I’ve tried to take a bit of the sting out of getting ready for school.
The best thing that I did was buy one of these from IKEA for $2.99. I love IKEA. And I’m super cheap and didn’t want to pay $20 for the specific days of the week organizers, so this works out perfectly for us.
On Sunday night I pick out D3’s clothes for the week. He used to help me choose, but now he doesn’t want to- which is fine by me!
I put shirt, pants, socks, and underwear in each little cubbie, so that all he has to do is grab and get dressed in the mornings.
This has been a lifesaver!
I also have a chart taped on the inside of his closet that gives him a run down of the things he has to do each morning.
If you can’t read it, it lists go to the restroom, get dressed, eat breakfast, brush teeth and hair, put lunch box in backpack and be ready to go by 7:20.
He doesn’t really rely on this chart anymore, but for quite a while it was a super important piece of paper!
A little bit of clothes organization to help my sanity in the mornings works for me!
