#16 Go Get Dressed
Use the drawers to sort outfits by purpose instead of putting all the pants in one drawer and all the shirts in another drawer. Put all the matched school clothes in one drawer. Put all the matched play clothes in another drawer. Put all the matched Sunday outfits in another drawer. Go crazy and get some labels if you think that will help you sell it to your kids. Hear yourself saying, "Go pick something from the school/play/Sunday drawer." and being satisfied with whatever they come out in because you have already assembled it.
My point. Kids, and their well meaning fathers, have a better grasp on activities than they do appropriate fashion choices. Take some extra time on the front end when you're putting the laundry away, save yourself the hassle of fighting with them over changing their clothes and just say, "Go get dressed!"
