Initial Clothing for Easy Sorting

When doing laundry for my 5 boys, sorting is easy: each boy's clothing item is marked on the "collar" area with the first initial of their name, in permanent marker. Every shirt, pair of jeans, and underclothes they own has a small letter on it. After awhile, I recognize whose item it is by sight.

The easiest method I've ever found for marking kid's clothing is to use 1 dot for the oldest, 2 dots for the next child, 3 for 3rd, etc. That makes handing things down so much easier. Even passing on to a neighbor works since there is no initial.
