Operation: Back to School Organization #FAIL
  • September 23, 2015

Being a mom and wife, things don’t always go the way we planned. Life happens, right?

Well, with that said, do you recall my post in August about my plans to organize my children’s clothes each school week? Well, It worked for 2 days! Yup, you read right! Not 2 weeks… TWO DAYS! I hung up my children’s clothes (Monday thru Friday) and after day 2, they didn’t like what they picked out! All of my planning went down the with the rest of my failed ideas! All of the prepping wasn’t all a bust, I lay out their clothes daily after school. They chose what they wanted to wear the next day and set it out for the next morning. No fuss, right? WRONG!!

There are still some days where my son or my 2nd oldest daughter would change their minds 15 minutes before the bus arrived. But, like an experienced mom in the attitude department, I just wake them 15 minutes earlier just in case! LOL

Life sends us curved balls all of the time, but when you know the game, it is not so bad to deal with! Well, I’m signing off! I have kids clothes to fold! LOL

 

What are some of your failed back to school ideas? We all have been there! Please share below or on my Facebook blog page https://www.facebook.com/hisproverbs1822

 

Operation: Back to School Organization
  • August 14, 2015

Yup! it’s that time again!! Checking off supply lists, early registration, buying more clothes… it’s almost a love/hate time of the year as a parent!

LOVE- your children won’t raid thee kitchen in the middle of the day. No fighting or unnecessary spills.

HATE- you have to get the kids in the habit of going to bed even though the sun is still shining… and you have to buy school supplies and clothes again.

I can only imagine how it feels to be a teacher this time of year! (I’ll know soon enough though)

 

Well, with the busyness of the new school year, moms have to step up their organization and time management game! Mine this year is set waaaayyyyy high! Now that I have FOUR children going to school this year, I need to manage my time wisely. This means having a plan for their clothes all week long!

 

My plan is to wash and prep my kids clothes during my wash day (Thursday). I will iron and hang up all (labeled) outfits for each day of the week. (Click sample to view.)

I’ll do a part two to show you my actual weekly clothing set up! Stay tuned!!!!

 

Until then, what are some ways you are preparing for Back to School?
