This is an oldie but a goodie - lots of you probably do it already but if you are new to sewing then add this to the final step when sewing elastic-waisted pants and shorts.
Before you sew the final seam to encase the elastic, add a small tab of ribbon to the back of the pants.
This makes it super-simple to find the back, particuarly handy when you are dressing a wriggling toddler.
I like to refer to it as 'daddy proofing' them.
I got tired of finding my girls walking around with their dacks on back to front!
