Time Savings Tips for the Back to School Rush
1. Start early.
The week before, start getting use to the new bed times and wake times. This will help kids get into the routine, know what to expect, and in turn move smoothly and save time in the morning and evening.

2. Gather items the evening before.
The night before school, spend 10 minutes gathering shoes and back packs. This will keep you from wasting time in the morning looking for them.
3. Pack lunches the evening before.
Don’t use up precious time in the morning making sandwiches. Make lunches the night before and shave at least 15 minutes off your morning.
4. Lay all clothing items out.
Place all of your clothing items out, all the way down to the underwear and shoes so that you don’t spend a single minute looking for clean clothes and matches.
5. Make a checklist, and use it!
Keep a simple checklist by the front door so you can do a simple inventory on your way out. This way you will be sure you have everything you need when you need it.
