Each school year, I try to come up with new ways to help make hectic school mornings a bit easier. As my kids get older, I love to give them more responsibility in their morning routine, and today’s project is one that I created specifically for that purpose. This DIY Outfit of the Day Tote (#ootd, in case you’re a hashtag lover like I am) can be made in minutes, and it is such a great way to reduce wardrobe stress on busy mornings! Kids place all of the elements of the next day’s outfit into the bag the night before, so all they have to do is grab it and get dressed once the alarm goes off in the morning. It is incredible how much this has helped reduce the stress of our school mornings since we started this little system! Read on for all of the details about this handy idea.

In the last 12+ years that my husband and I have been married, we have moved our fair share of times through our fair share of states. It’s been quite the adventure!
