Zip Lock Order.

To eliminate confusion in the mornings, I took 10 zip lock bags, labeled them for each day of the week and for each of my girls. I then put in each bag all the clothes, including socks and underwear, that they would need for that day of school. I have used it for one week and will never go back to doing it any other way!
Good luck sis! Ike is on it's way.
How do you put order into your weekend?
Are you having a good week?

Your word of the year has really become a part of your daily life. Good for you! The ziplocks are a great idea, and a good way to learn days of the week too.

What a great idea! Glad it is going so well. I think I will have to try it out with Livy. She needs so much help.

This is a great idea! I waste so much time when I look for my children's clothes in the morning.

My kids would never go for this. They are very particular about picking out their own clothes. But I'm glad it works so well for you!

Liz said...

You are a FREAKING GENIOUS!!! I always want a certain pair of socks but she wore them two days ago... AAAUGGH!

I really like your new banner, too!

oh wow...michelle. I heard this long ago, but in the light of traveling. So after that...since I over pack...I have put this method in place and it has been wonderful. I still tend to pack 4 more extra ziplocs per kid, but I am getting better. What a great idea for every day! Way you go!
