Tell me, do YOU have a good routine for helping your kids get dressed in a timely manner? School days in our house (any days really) start early and before we are up for an hour there’s already been an argument about clothes. My son is a breeze as far as getting ready but my daughter has a mind of her own. I know some of you can relate 🙂 This little “mind of her own” causes a few issues when it comes to picking out clothes, especially for school days. This is where the idea of the days of the week clothing tags come in.
It didn’t take me long to realize I needed to come up with a better plan for choosing clothes before school.
That’s when a friend shared a great organizational idea!
She purchased “days of the week” clothes tags for all her kids and they choose their outfits for the whole week on Sunday.
I’m all about organization, especially when it comes to my kids. Recently I found a way to organize my kids photos and memories into a private Instagram account. I love this because it eliminates the need for storing all their extra art work and worrying about what to do with all those photos and videos you have stored on your phone.
Back to the clothes organization; I searched the web for “days of the week” clothes tags and couldn’t find any that I really liked. That’s when a light bulb went off.
I’ll print my own!
I figured while I was creating my own clothes tags I might as well share some free printables so YOU can print your own “days of the week” tags at home too!
What do you think of these? I even added cute motivational sayings. After all, kids need all the help they can get these days right!

Clothes tags Materials:
- Paper to print clothes tags on. I used glittery card stock. Regular card stock works fine too. I would suggest a heavier weight paper rather than normal weight.
- Printer to print them from. Note; it’s best to use a LASER printer rather than ink jet because the toner will be less likely to wipe off. That being said, you can use an ink jet, just make sure the ink won’t rub off on your clothes. I used an ink jet printer for mine and they do rub off just a tad.
For those of you who prefer to buy your own days of the week clothes tags, I’ve found a few cute ones below;
You will probably have to add a piece of tape to the back so the clothes tags don’t fall off the hanger.
Aren’t they cute? LOL. I’m praying my daughter thinks so and will want to use them!
Now for the fun part. It’s time to put the DIY clothes tags to use!
Sitting down with a four year old and picking out five outfits for the week might be a stretch, but at least it’s a step in the right direction to creating a more organized and less stressful home. We actually pick out 6-7 outfits because it never fails that she isn’t happy with at least one of them.
