In the Valley right now, many kids are heading back to school. It’s time to jump into new routines for the new school year. If you’re looking to get organized and save yourself some time and stress, we have a few solutions for you.
Use your freezer space
Just before school starts is the perfect time to begin meal prepping. Preparing and eating meals takes up so much time each day and when life gets busy with school and extracurricular activities you may be tempted to skip a homecooked meal and run through a drive thru. Instead, use your freezer to help get meals on the table quicker.
The internet is full of excellent crock pot or Instant Pot meals. Many of them have ingredients that can be chopped up and frozen. When it comes time to cook, just empty the bag and have dinner ready in no time. You can also use your freezer to freeze breakfast items like breakfast burritos or sandwiches to be heat up in the microwave during the morning rush out the door.
Choose outfits ahead of time
How many times have you been in a rush to get the kids to school in the morning and heard something along the lines of “I don’t have any socks!” or “Where’s my favorite shirt?” You can save yourself time and headaches by laying out clothes the night before. You could even have your children pick out outfits on Sunday for the entire week. Place neatly-folded outfits together along with socks and underwear. Don’t forget to include a plan for sports uniforms too.
As you lay out outfits for the week you ay notice some items that don’t get chosen often—if ever. Decluttering as you go can also help save time down the line.
Laying out outfits also provides an opportunity to see which items need alterations, cleaning or to be replaced altogether.
