Morning Routine Prep Hanger

Mornings at my house are the hardest. I’m not a morning person, so trying to get two kids ready and out the door while trying to get myself ready feels like swimming against the tide every morning. To help our mornings go easier, I like to plan ahead, and set up routines. One very simple way to plan ahead is to set aside clothes for the following day. We live in a small house, with not a lot of room to set things aside. So making this Morning Routine Prep Hanger makes sense – It gets everything ready, keeps it organized, and also out of the way. It also keeps socks from going missing. Many a tardy slip can be traced back to missing socks!

This project is part of Craft Lighting – Back to School. All week long my friends from The Country Chic Cottage and Happy Go Lucky Blog and I are sharing fast and easy projects you can make in 10 minutes or less, that are perfect for Back to School! We’ve also invited some of our craftiest friends from around the internet to join in – check out their awesome projects below!

Start mornings out right with this morning routine prep hanger - have clothes and reminders ready to go each morning!

To make your Morning Routine Prep Hanger, you’ll need:

Wooden Hanger
Hot Glue
Permanent Marker
Stickers (optional)


Use hot glue to glue on clothespins.

Paint in your child’s favorite color. I’m going with this great red Waverly Chalk Paint that Plaid Crafts sent me.

Let it dry. Then write on the clothespins what each one is for. Put light things on the outside (socks, notes), and heavier things in the middle (shirts, pants).

write with marker


If you like, you can decorate the hanger with stickers – or you can let your kids personalize their own.

You’re all set to have stress-free mornings! As long as you don’t run out of cereal. Or milk!

  1. This is a great idea. We were battling with little lady remembering all of her bits and bobs for school (bag, pet kit, spellings book etc) last term so I’ll definitely be making up this cute hanger for that. Hopefully help her be a little more organised, helping me be more efficient without her even knowing it 😊
