Mom reveals system to knowing what clothing item belongs to which of her kids – it even works for hand-me-downs

A MOTHER of multiple children shared her secret to keeping track of her children’s clothes when doing laundry. 

She said she uses a simple dot system.


“I myself have multiple boys the same age and when it comes time for laundry, it can get really confusing, really fast [when keeping track of] who’s is who’s – especially when so much of them are the same,” she explained in a video she posted to TikTok.

“So what I’ve done is a dot system. 

“One dot means it’s the oldest boy and when they no longer fit him, I hand it down to the second kid and I’ll add a second dot,” she said while showing the markings on her children’s clothes.

She added that this prevents her from needing to remember which boy is which size. 

“And when I hand it down to the third child, I put a third dot,” she concluded. 

The mother previously revealed that she sections off the boys’ closet so they know where to look for their own clothes.

Another mother of multiple children shared time-saving tips that she believes make her and her kids’ day run smoothly. 

First, she starts each day by laying the morning’s breakfast options on the table.

“Then they just need to choose cereal and get themselves a glass of water or milk and they can be eating while I’m getting myself ready or sorting something else,” she said. 

She also puts toothpaste on each child’s toothbrush so all they need to do is grab their brush and start brushing.

Lastly, she lays her kids' outfits for the day out the night before, as well as pre-packs their lunches

“I also always make packed lunches the night before and put them in the fridge ready to be collected by each child when we are ready to leave,” she explained.
