I stock my daughters drawers the same way I do everyone’s in our home, newly folded clothes to the back of the drawer to rotate them. So it should be easy enough to just grab the first item in the drawer and put it on. But, she likes some choices, and I learned she likes to see an outfit laid out, not separate pieces. Plus, some tops just go better with specific bottoms.
So, I check my weather app for the week’s forecast and create 5 outfits on Sunday and hang them on hangers. I try to use one hanger for each day, but tutus are simply hung beside a day’s hanger.
Jeans and shorts I hang on a hanger with a shirt using a belt loop…
or a tag if there isn’t a loop…
I fold leggings directly on the hanger.
Now there’s 5 outfits for 5 days and she has some choice (I often hold up two hangers, “This one or this one”), but not so many choices that it will keep her from getting ready and getting out the door in time for school. I’m a big advocate for a lack of options.
How about you? Do you lay out clothes for the next day or do you do it for someone in your family?
