Back to school: The clever school uniform hack that'll save you time and stress
Back to reality.
The kids are going back to school, and I don't know about you, but I am in equal measure delighted (yay, I can work, they can see friends and actually learn something from people who are trained to teach!) and terrified – I mean; how the heck are we going to manage the morning rush once more?!
I am meal-prepping breakfast muffins and have already got timetables and dinner plans up on the wall, and feel grateful my kids are in a school with no uniforms – meaning at least there is one less thing to be stressing about in the morning.
However, if you feel a little unnerved at the thought of trying to root out uniforms and matching shirts, socks and ties every morning, I have a feeling you might just love this mum's easy idea.
In the 'Lockdown Ideas' Facebook group, a very savvy mum shared how she has set up a school uniform station – and needless to say, other mums were loving the idea.
The 'school uniform station' basically consists of five drawers for each day of the school week, in which the kids' uniforms are stored so they know exactly what they need to wear on that day.
Some mums confessed they label each draw and some have a colour-coded system –the point is, this makes things super-easy for the kids – and it really doesn't cost much to replicate.
Oh, and if you don't have five sets of uniform for each of your kids, just restock the station once you've washed Mondays and Tuesdays.
