Good Habit: Prepping Outfits in Advance

One thing I got into the habit of doing when I was a wee little one was choosing then next day's outfit the night before. It's something I don't do now that I'm grown, but here is some inspiration for getting back in the habit (and saving precious time on mornings when you've hit the snooze button one - or a few - too many times):

1 Set it all out, including accessories. Image via Morning's Light
2 Hang your pre-selected clothes on wall-mounted racks, as in this previous Apartment Therapy post, IKEA Outfit Rack
3 Try everything on together in advance to make sure it all comes together without last-minute surprises Image: Fashion Architect
4 Go to Living Locurto for free, printable day-of-the-week tags for prepping your childrens' outfits in advance (or your own if you're really on top of the game!)
5 A grown-up version: 30 complete outfits on the hanger, accessories and all. Choose one in the morning dash and rest assured it's ready to go. Image: Brilliant thoughts by other people
