I hate school mornings, Grumpy kids – Grumpy me! Arghhhh! So ideas to simplify the mornings are always good. Here is an idea I found on the internet I wanted to share. Each child had 2 sets of three drawers (like pictured – around 12.50 per unit) and stacked on each other. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday were written on paper and slipped on the inside of each drawer front. Each drawer had an outfit folded and ready to go. If paperwork like permission slips or something important had to be turned in on a particular day that also would go in the drawer. Their book bag packed each nigh goes on top of their respective drawer system.. This leaves sleepy heads no choices because they already are made. You can place these in a mudroom or in their own rooms out of the way. It just helps make the mornings a bit more quiet and much less panicky….. which is good if I have yet to have my coffee.
