Ironing is not one of my favorite jobs. I also don’t like having to stand in front of the closet in the morning trying to find a matching skirt and shirt that are both fairly wrinkle free. After all I don’t want to look all frumpy for my family. 🙂
So my solution to both of these issues is to have an ironing/organizing day. 🙂 On Saturdays I get out the ironing board and find seven outfits that I want to wear in the upcoming week and iron them all. I match skirts and shirts together. I usually even hang them on the same hanger. So when morning comes all I have to do is grab the next outfit and I’m good to go.
Ironing isn’t a time consuming job. And by getting all of my ironing done one day a week I don’t have to set up the ironing board and put it away multiple times.
I also do this for Drew and Carter. I was getting tired of digging through their drawers trying to find a shirt and pants that matched. So I match up seven outfits for the boys one day a week. Now when I get them dressed in the morning I just have to open the draw and grab the outfit on top. It definitely makes the morning scramble run a bit more smoothly. 🙂
This definitely works for me!
