Are you vowing to be a bit more prepared this school year when it comes to getting the kids out the door, and keep your sanity?

Dry Erase Board List









Just print out a list of what your kids needs to do that day for school, and put that list in a picture frame. You can check off what's been done with a dry erase marker, then erase it so it's ready for the next day. You'll never have to print out another list again!

Sponge Ice Pack









Want to keeps your kids' lunches cold without paying for those expensive ice packs? Just soak a sponge in water, stick it in a Ziploc bag, and put it in the freezer. Once it's frozen, you can put it in your kid's lunch box to keep the food cold.

What-to-Wear Organizer









How many fights result in your kids figuring out what to wear each morning? Get some multi-drawer plastic organizers, and put a set of clothes in each drawer for each day of the week.  On Sunday, your kids can fill them!

Lunch Packing Stock








Packing lunches can be a breeze if you make snack packs ahead of time. Put various containers in your pantry, and teach the kids to grab one from each bin and throw it in their bag. Each of the food groups can be covered and they can help pack a lunch without too many questions.
