Back to School 2010 Giveaway: Streamlining Your Morning Routine (5 Winners) [CLOSED]

This fall, we will have three children to get up and ready for school instead of one. The thought of it is making me rather nervous. This is uncharted territory for us. Getting our 6 year old son up, ready, and to the bus stop on time was challenging enough last year, but now we will be adding getting our 3 year old twins up, dressed, fed, and to preschool on time as well.

This contest could not have come at a better time. I do have a list of things I plan to do to streamline our mornings, but I really could use some more tips!



My Tips for Streamlining Mornings During the School Year:
  • Help your children pick out their clothes and lay them out the night before, including matching socks.
  • Make sure all homework and anything else that needs to go to school are already in their school bags.
  • Take the empty lunch bag from your child when they come home from school, repack it immediately with the following day's lunch, and put it in the fridge.
  • Leave the school bag unzipped to remind you that you need to put the lunch or snack in there the next morning.
  • Leave the drinkware, flatware, and dishes needed for breakfast out on the counter the night before.
  • Serve your children something for breakfast that is nutritious, but can be prepared easily and quickly, like the new Eggo Real Fruit Pizzas. They offer your child a hot breakfast with just 1-minute in the microwave.
  • Serve your child something you know they will like to eat to avoid a battle at breakfast. Save the experimenting for the weekends.
