Ways to Make Back-To-School Mornings Easier

Ways to Make Back-To-School Mornings Easier

  1. Forget stopping for your morning coffee - that takes a lot of time and money. Prep your coffee pot the night before, so all you have to do when you wake up is flip the switch. Your coffee will brew as you get everyone ready and out the door.
  2. Invest in a great travel mug (like this one from Contigo we found on Amazon, note it's an affiliate link) to take your freshly brewed coffee to go. (Make sure it fits in your car's cup holder).
  3. Keep a calendar with everyone's schedules on it right next to the coffeemaker. You can glance at it in the morning and know what's in store for the day.
  4. Pack lunches and plan outfits the night before to avoid morning confusion.
  5. Keep grab-and-go breakfast foods, like granola bars and bananas, on hand.
  6. Give yourself a time cushion for unexpected delays (don't wake up at the last minute!).
  7. Instead of dumping leftover coffee, store it in the fridge before you walk out the door. An iced coffee can serve as a nice afternoon pick-me-up.
  8. Check the weather and pick your outfits the night before. Last minute wardrobe changes and throw off a morning.
