Making Your Life a Little Easier

I love to organize and plan. Everything. I make a lot of lists and write tons of stuff down in my planner. I go through things and re-organize them probably once a month, if not more. I love to try and figure out ways to make my busy life a little easier and more time efficient, so that I can spend more time with this guy.

This idea started because I needed to figure out the best routine for my mornings so I could make it to work on time. My son wakes up very early and requires most of my attention until my husband gets up, and then I get ready. I figured out, that in order for me to get ready in the quickest amount of time and get out the door, I had to plan my weeks ahead of time. I needed to have my lunch ready the night before and my outfits already selected. I can't tell you how much time I have wasted trying to pick out what to wear every morning. 

Now maybe, for some of you this is not such a big deal, but for me it was. It was actually the reason I started arriving late to work. I had to figure out a solution, so I came up with these days of the week outfit tags. The idea is simple. You go through your closet every Sunday night and pick out your outfits for the week. Then you take the corresponding tag and hang it on the hanger with your outfit that you want to wear on that day. And that's it! One less step you have to tackle in the morning that will hopefully save you a few extra minutes. 

Just print the tags, cut them out,  punch a whole at the top for the string, and start planning your outfits!

Many Blessings,
