Time to relax, have fun… and for me a chance to get organized for the week 🙂
Earlier in the month I posted a make-ahead lunch idea for the work week in Getting Organized: Jar Salads.
And today I have a second ‘getting organized’ tip to share.
This is not so much a ‘tip’ as much as it is my own attempt to get myself organized…and an excuse to do some crafts!!
I don’t know about you… but for me mornings are always a huge rush. Usually from try to steal that extra 5 or 10 (or 45…panic!!) minutes of sleep.
Which generally leads to the biggest disaster of trying to figure out what to wear. Ugg.
For some reason on those rushed mornings every piece of clothing I actually want to wear is either wrinkly, dirty, or hiding somewhere. I don’t know how this happens…it just does.
Sometimes I wish I just had a uniform, it would save so much time 🙂
Anyways, I was chatting with a friend about this, and she mentioned that at one point she had these little labels to put on her hangers as a way to organize her outfits for the week.
…Sounds like the perfect DIY idea to me!!!
So I stopped by the craft store to scope out their supplies. I had an idea in my mind of what I was going for and managed to find just what I needed to bring that idea to life!
I picked up these little chalk board plaques, and decided to go with stickers rather than handwriting on the letters (look at those colorful patters! Obvious choice). And I add the paper flowers for an extra touch.
Here’s what you do, it’s super simple:
Pick your sticker and stick it on, this one is my ‘F’ for ‘Friday’ (I labeled the plaques M, T, W, T, F, S, S, aka. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday…etc.) and then glue on the flower.
And VOILA! You are done.
This DIY probably took me 10 minutes total, and these outfit labels ended up so cute!!!
Now all I have to do is make sure I’m disciplined enough to pick my outfits out for the week!!
I’ll be giving these outfit labels a try starting Monday, here’s hoping they will save me some time in mornings!
We’ll see how it goes 🙂
