Evenings/Mornings: If you have rushed mornings, make lunches, set out clothes, and put everything you need for the next day in a designated area the night before.
1.Have kids pack homework and books in their backpack so they will be ready for the next day.
25. Store clothes that you want to save in a vacuum sealed plastic bag. These bags pack down for storing under the bed or in a closet. Remember to save only the clothes that you think will be worn!
Additional tip, if you purchase a binder that has pockets, store clipped recipes that you want to try in the pockets before adding them to your collection.
34. Get in a habit of cleaning out your refrigerator every time you bring home groceries. Dispose of any food that is no longer edible or your family is not going to eat.
40. Buy the kids their own alarm clocks and teach them how to get up on time.
Print copies and keep one copy handy for the current week. When you see you are low on a product or you’re preparing your grocery list for the week, simply highlight whatever items you need. Keep the document current by adding new items and/or deleting items you no longer buy. Also, create a space on the document for Misc. items where your family members can write down what they need that is not on your list.
50. Create an in box on your desk for papers (bills, permission slips, etc.) that need your attention.
