The birds are chirping, the toads are croaking, and the temperatures are in the high 60s. Woo hoo!
Spring is peeking around the corner which means it’s switch-a-roo time.
Yep, time to switch our family’s clothing from sweaters, jackets, and pants to tank tops, capris, and swimsuits.
Though we still keep out some long-sleeved outfits for those cold mornings, I will need to start making the change in the next week or two.
To stay organized and to keep the mess to a minimum, I follow this organizational system for switching out my children’s clothing:
As Paul and I are able to keep both our winter and our summer clothing housed in our closet and dressers year round, we do move our clothing around a bit to make getting to flip flops and short-sleeved shirts a tad easier.
In the next few weeks as you embark on switch-a-roo time, remember that extra outfit you stash in your vehicle, the coat closet downstairs, and/or the sports backpack that is sure to have a couple pairs of socks. I list these items more to remind myself as these are spots where I find items after putting everything away.
Enjoy these last days of winter as we wrap up the cold weather activities and prepare for days outside. Switch-a-roo time is coming along with warmer weather, visits to the park, and neighborhood walks. Happy preparing!
