We have started the back-to-school countdown at our house! If you have school-age kids, I bet you are too. We are lucky to have a couple more weeks of summer before heading back on August 27. While I’m looking forward to these last slow days with Stella and Hazel at home, I’m also anxious to get us all back on a schedule. Establishing a routine at the start of the year and sticking with it can make getting out of the house in the morning so much easier and less stressful. I’ve partnered with the Chinet® brand to share my 7 steps for streamlining the back-to-school routine, including a free printable School Weekly Planner that you are going to love!
I’m a pen and paper planner and love starting my day with a look at the week to come. I developed this simple Back to School Weekly Planner printable to help you keep tabs on school events, after-school activities, and meal planning for the week. You can download it here! I’d love to know if you end up using it and find it helpful, so please drop me a note below.
“But first, coffee!” is the motto in my house on school mornings and Chinet® Comfort Cup® insulated hot cups are the best thing to have on hand when I want to take a coffee to go as we are running out the door. I like to keep a stack of them at my coffee station. Its new design is too cute to keep hidden in the cabinets!
In addition to the coffee station which makes my morning coffee routine extra special, I have a school lunch station in the cabinet below which helps streamline packing lunches, snacks, and water bottles while making everything accessible for kids to help out too. Head to the Chinet® brand website for more “life hacks” that save our family a lot of time in the morning with two kids that need to be at the bus stop by 6:45am.
Best of luck with the start of another school year, and remember “But first, coffee!”
