Do you pick out your children's clothes on a daily or weekly basis?

I've thought about going through all my kids' clothes and have them picked out several days in advance. I haven't done it yet because when I think about it, I don't have the time. Maybe I'll try it here soon. It's just a matter of getting my husband on board with what I pick out.

When my two (now grown) sons were smaller I did. I bought those stackable crate looking things and picked ou thier clothes for the week and had them neatly stacked in those. I worked full time and it was such a time saver to just grab them and get them ready to go to the sitters. I always had one outfit for them to wear and one for a back-up and the sitter just kept the back-up until it was used then I would throw together another. I recently adopted my nephew and I am finding it very hard to get back into this habit now. But I think it has to do with the fact that I don't work full-time now so there is not really the same need for it. It is really nice once you get the routine down though.

Right now, I can only really handle two days at a time, but that's better than nothing. I'm home during the day, so clothes really aren't a problem during those times. It's just a matter of making sure my husband knows where the kids' pajamas are when he has to get them ready for bed on the nights I work. Although, there have been times where my son, who's 18-months, I'd find him in the clothes from the previous day when I pull him out of his crib. The only thing my husband did was change his diaper and put him in bed. Of course, I shouldn't talk...I've done the same thing.
