A SUPER-ORGANISED mum has shown how she keeps her kids’ uniforms organised as she gets creative with this fun hack – while using it to teach her daughter at the same time.
If, like many parents, you find school mornings hectic between getting your kid up, washed dressed and fed, you know little bit of organisation goes a long way.
Holly Foxhall took to the popular Family lockdown tips & ideas Facebook group to share how she organises her daughters uniforms to make life less hectic.
“Just thought I would share with you my daughters’ school uniform boxes” says Holly.
She added: “I loved looking at all the different ideas but some were quite expensive.”
Holly is a theatre practitioner working for the NHS and says that after a very difficult year her family are trying to make life easier by being more organised.
She posted a photo of 6 pink boxes with the days Monday to Friday posted posted on five of them and one left blank which Holly says is for the spare uniform.
“I bought these photo boxes from hobby craft and they perfectly fit either a full school uniform or PE kit for a day for my year one daughter” she said.
Adding: “She loves them and they look lovely in her room ! I use the sixth one for a spare uniform.”
Speaking of the random order of the days, the mum says her daughter can reach the boxes so she organises them on the weekend.
“However we also use it to practice reading the days of the week and a little game when I am home from the school run” says Holly.
The post was met with a range of comments praising the mum’s creative organisation.
“Mine are 10, nine, seven and five. None of them have trouble brushing their teeth and getting dressed independently at the weekend. School mornings are manic” said one person.
“Love that the child has to order them to, great learning” commented another.
