Works For Me - Clothes (and GIVEAWAY!!)



Clothes. At times I feel that I am drowning in them. Especially boy clothes. When my 3 boys were smaller, it was difficult to tell their clothes apart. I ran across a system that worked well for us. All it took was a Sharpie.

Instead of using initials, where we would eventually run out of room on the tag, I used small dots.

Very simple concept. Boy #1 – who wore the largest clothes, received one dot. Boy #2 received 2 dots and Boy #3 received 3. Works great if you pass the clothes down the line as we do. This also allowed my husband to sort the clothes without having to ask “Hey, who’s are these?” 95 times. And I didn’t have to hear “Hey, he’s wearing my shirt!” over and over either.

To celebrate my first WFMW post and in honor of my girl’s 5th birthday tomorrow, I am having a giveaway. Just head over to my etsy store (over on the sidebar), come back here and leave a comment, and your name will be entered in a drawing for $20 credit in the store. Winner to be announced Monday morning-ish, September 15th.


Head over to Rocks in My Dryer for more WFMW tips.

You just solved a dilemma of what to put in family member's x-mas stockings this year. Coffee cozies! The crossword one would be perfect for my hubby!

Enter me - enter me! I like the diaper totes. I don't carry a diaper bag anymore so I could really use something like that in my car.

Very cute items on etsy! I really like the hug-a-latte's! So cute!
And my daughter could use one of those crayon rollups...she loves to color.
THanks for the giveaway!
And your sharpie idea is great too...but since I only have one girl and one boy, I don't think I would need it. :)
