Matching Outfits When You Cannot See

As Noah gets older, he is 15 months now, I feel like he is wearing more two piece outfits whether it is a shirt and pants/shorts set, or pajama top and bottom set. As a blind mother, this makes matching items after doing the wash, a pain in the butt.

I created a simple method that if you do your laundry as much as I do, it will be a sure way to keep things organized without constantly having to ask for assistance.

For example, let’s say that Noah wore four different two piece pajamas. I will put one top and bottom in the wash as is, right side out. The next top and bottom, I will completely put inside out. For the third outfit, I put the left arm inside out and the left leg. For the last outfit, I will put the right arm and the right leg inside out. This way, hopefully, when the laundry comes out of the dryer, I can easily match the tops to the bottoms and put them away without asking for sighted help.

Of course, this is only going to work if I am wide awake, had my cup of coffee, and can remember my right from my left at the given moment.
