Strategic Sock Drawer
The theme for this week's Works for Me Wednesday is "Best Back to School Tip".
For me, back to school means getting everyone out of the house earlier in the mornings and with a firm deadline and again in the late afternoons for various activities. This can be tricky when little kids are involved!
In conjunction with my shoe shelf that I posted about here, the strategic sock drawer definitely helps makes things run a little smoother for us. Now in the summer this isn't an issue because the kids are wearing Crocs or sandals without socks, but for the school year when more socks are needed, this drawer is a time saver!
The sock drawer is located downstairs in the living room and holds all three of the kids' socks. This way they don't have to run back upstairs for shoes or socks and we can get out of the house in a hurry! Also, it is low enough that they can reach the drawer and handle their own socks in the morning.
And feel free to admire my drawer dividers -- most of them are repurposed shoe boxes!
