MY BEST TIME SAVING LAUNDRY TRICK

Fold your kid’s outfits together!  How simple is that?!

I originally started doing this when Peanut was around one for my husband’s sake.  When he was in charge of grabbing an outfit to bring to daycare, I wasn’t always there to let him know what pants went with what shirt.  I started putting outfits together in her dresser drawers so he could just grab one and go.

After a while, I started to realize what a time saver it was for us in the morning.  I’m still putting Peanut’s outfits together, but now, it helps her when she’s picking out what to wear in the morning.  Less stress for both of us.

Here’s my process while folding laundry:

Make a pile of tops and a pile of bottoms.
Match up coordinating pairs.
Fold pants behind shirts.
Stack in dresser.

  1. This is so smart!! With my son starting school next week, I’ll definitely be using this tip! I know it will help my mornings go much smoother!!

  2. This is so smart. Our mornings are so hectic that this would save a lot of time. Do you get any pushback about wearing a “favorite” shirt? My son is obsessed with this one train he has. hahahaha!

    1. I could see that happening for sure. Right now though, she doesn’t care too much about what she wears. That probably wont last too much longer tho.

  3. That’s a great idea! I use a Miracle Fold board (Bed, Bath, and Beyond). Best household investment I’ve made! It makes folding laundry so much quicker and easier. And at the end all my skirt and pants stack so neatly and nicely because they are the exact same size.

  4. Such a simple and effective time saving trick! I don’t have kids yet, but I do the same with my sheet sets! I fold up the sheets and one pillowcase, then stick them all inside the other pillowcase to keep them all together and easy to find!
