A Few Nifty Little Hacks We Can’t Live Without Now
Organizing Clothes That Don’t Fit
When your little one outgrows something in their closet, going all the way to put it in the attic or the basement can be a huge chore. Instead, keep a couple of plastic storage boxes in the bottom of your kids’ closet. Label them “too small” and “too big.” When something no longer fits, just throw it into the “too small box”, then when the box is full, put a lid on it and it’s ready to donate, consign, or give to a younger sibling or cousin. The “too big” box is for those hand-me-downs that don’t quite fit yet.

Keep A Small Bag Of Activities In The Car
We’ve all had those days where no matter what, your kid just wants to do something entirely different than what they are doing. If you’re running errands in the car all day, they are bored out of their minds. If you’re out at the park, they want to be coloring, typical! So, a cool hack we’ve got for you is to keep a small bag of activities in the car for all occasions. If they’re bored in the car? Throw them a coloring book or something else cool from the stash.
Marshmallow Ice Pack
Might seem like a little bit of a weird and funny one, but we swear by it now. At some point, your kid is going to need an ice pack.
