This week we are focusing on Weeks 53 & 54 in the book, Organize Now! a week-by-week guide to simplify your space and your life.
Organize Your Routines
This week I am featuring Jennifer Dempsey of Motherthyme. I can’t wait to make her oatmeal recipe!! Plus, she made printable checklists for you!
Today is week 4 of the Organize Now! Challenge. So far I have featured ideas to organize your Schedule, Cupboards and Closets. This week I am sharing tips and ideas to organize your routine. If you don’t have an organized routine day to day life may be chaotic.
Morning routines can differ from your evening routines.
Click HERE to a free print 8 x 10 morning checklist.
~ Have each family member make a list of everything they need to do.
~ Estimate how much time each task takes.
Once that is done review the list and check to see if everything needs to be done in the morning. Is there more time in your evening routine to allow for something to be done in the evening instead?
Save time in your morning routine by making lunches, checking homework, packing bags, getting outfits ready and ironed if needed the night before to save time in the morning routine.
~ Prepare easy breakfasts. Breakfast is essential in the mornings and you should always take a few minutes to eat breakfast. Check out the recipe for Overnight Steel Cut Oats which you can have ready for you in the morning to enjoy with yogurt for a healthy and satisfying breakfast.
