I want to carry on with uses for a Sharpie pen. Last week, I told you how to mark expiration dates on your stockpile items. Heather taught us how permanent markers can help keep AC adapters and power cords organized and how to determine how quickly laundry soap is used. This week, I would like to focus on clothes organization.
My sister-in-law Cathy has come up with a clever way of keeping her three boys clothes organized and separated. They use the dot system. Boy number one has one dot on his tags, boy number two has two dots and the third has three dots. This system is a huge time saver when it comes to sorting and folding laundry. When the clothes are passed down from boy number one to number two, a dot is added. The other great thing about the dot system is that when the boys stay over with relatives, everyone knows whose clothes are whose!
I will be implementing this system at my house too. I have two boys and you would think it would be easy to tell their clothes apart. However, when my husband dresses them, I have commonly found my almost three year old in my 15 month olds shorts! I also find that their clothes area mixed up in each others drawers.
How do you organize and sort your children’s clothes?
