Ways to Make Back-To-School Mornings Easier

The BACK-TO-SCHOOL rush is upon us again, and that makes for some very hectic mornings. Luckily Eight O'Clock Coffeehas been in the business of making mornings better for over 150 years, and they have shared with us these EIGHT tips for stress-free mornings.

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 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.
