Do you struggle with making it out the door each morning, cup of coffee in hand, only to realize that you have forgotten something? If you have children, maybe it was their homework (how convenient!) or you left someone’s lunch on the counter? How easy is it to miss some of the details as you make your way out into the world on time?
Thankfully, our friends Ashley and Julie from Mind Your Mess have opened up about 4 streamlined tips that can help you not only make it out the door on time, but with everything you need!
- Reset Your Bag; Take everything out- yes, everything. If you’re using the same bag tomorrow, the essentials can go back in now.If you are switching, put your daily essentials in a bin, basket or drawer by the front door.
- Mind Your Mess; Everything’s out in the open, so it’s time to deal with it! File receipts, place food containers in the dishwasher, put snacks back in the pantry, and toss the trash.
- Rehome Your Keys; They’re the difference between leaving your house on time or not. Don’t leave them in your bag, otherwise you’ll be digging for them when it comes time to lock your door. Find a bowl or a wall hook for fast access.
- Prep For Tomorrow: What are you doing tomorrow? Put everything you will need by the front door. This is the time to prepare any meals or snacks that you will need to bring with you in the morning.
