Apparently, if you take a look at the tags of a shirt and pants that are meant to go together, you will find matching numbers that signify that the items are a pair.
Parents took to the comments section of Long’s video to speak about the finding.
Some people wear aware of the tip, like one who wrote: “Yes!!!! Been doing this for years!”
Another said: “I did that and everyone said it was too much… Then wondered how I had so many nice outfits to pass down years later.”

Others hadn’t heard of it, one person writing: “I never knew this, I just always mixed and matched my kids’ clothes.”
An additional person chimed in: “I wouldn’t even know. I cut all tags.”
Many viewers left their own methods for keeping track of what pieces go together.
“Before I wash my baby’s clothes, I put numbers on each outfit so I can just look for the numbers,” one wrote.
“I take pictures of the outfit before putting them in the washer. I have a whole photo album of his outfits to know what goes with what afterward,” a second added.
“I always just safety pinned the top to the bottom before washing,” a third said.
“Lmfao, this happens to me. I just Google the outfit and see it there lmao.”
A naturally skilled person said: “I have this weird skill to remember what goes with what. Even hand-me-downs that have been stored for years, I just know. It ONLY works with kids clothes.”If you look at the tags of a shirt and pants that are supposed to go together, you will find matching numbers that signify that the items are a pair[/caption]
