During the summer the kids and I are constantly headed out the door- whether its to play outside, swim in the pool, or go out on a hike. And while I keep a bottle of sunscreen in the car and also in my handbag- I've found that the best way for me to make sure that we each actually apply sunscreen before heading outside, is for us to see it right there by the door! So I decided to get organized and created a little “grab-and-go” station to help me in organizing sunscreen and sunglasses.
Organizing Sunscreen and Sunglasses with a Grab-and-Go Station!
I simply set up two plastic bins right on the table next to the door we use most often.
I've found that setting up a grab and go station by the door is the best way of organizing sunscreen and sunglasses- and makes sure that we use these items all summer long!
All it takes is the visual trigger to remind me that we need to apply sunscreen!
Clearly labeled- we literally can't miss them.
I created the labels using PicMonkey and then laminated them using my home laminator , but I could also have used these chalkboard labels that just peel and stick and can be written on with chalkboard markers .
I also threw some bug spray in with the sunscreen- as I found we were using that nearly as often!
Do you find it easier to remember items when they are strategically located right where you will see them?
