System for Shirts

I shared last night about how I went to Costco yesterday. One of my Costco items is the 6 pack of Kirkland brand undershirts. They stand up to Luke's wear and tear and he seems to like them. I get a new 6 pack every summer and I was trying to figure out how to mark them so I'd know which generation the shirts were. I couldn't do letters or numbers because eventually 1 or A would become B. I needed a system that would cycle with the shirts. Finally I came up with dots!


One dot means newest. Each time I get new shirts I add a dot to all of them. I leave the best looking three dots for messy jobs and cut the others into dust cloths/glasses cleaners/whiteboard erasers for school...you get the idea.

This is a good idea! I should do this for my man's white shirts.

I take care of my own and my kids clothes. He is on his own. That is enough for me! I don't even fold much anymore, mostly my own clothes.
