  1. All of these tips are great! I am going to try to set an alarm for departure time so that I know I better get into gear!

  2. Ahhhhh, mornings….. so much chaos! And only one of my two is in school right now! But that means that I have to corral a toddler while trying to get my preschooler out the door. These tips are great! I will add to the tip about setting alarms on your phone: I also use alarms to remind me of things I need to bring we leave, for example, packages to bring to the post office, special homework for my son, etc!

      Good luck!! I’m so glad you found this post useful! I hope the alarms help you out!

  3. I love all of these ideas. I’ve never heard of frozen sandwiches, so creative. We have a 5 month old so our mornings don’t quite look this hectic yet. Something that we do to save time on breakfast is making breakfast burritos on the weekends and keep them in the freezer. We use eggs bacon and cheese, grill them up a bit so the cheese melts to hold it together and wrap them in parchment paper and then foil. In the morning you just remove the foil and pop in the microwave. We like this because you can grab it and eat in the car if necessary.

      This is a great tip! I did this a few years ago until I got sick of breakfast sandwiches bit it was great when we did it ! You can also make egg and cheese sandwiches. You pour scrambled eggs into a large pan and bake. Then cut it into squares, put a piece of cheese on top and put it in an English muffin. They freeze great and can be reheated like the breakfast burritos !

      Thanks so much for commenting !

      Thank you! Thanks for being a loyal reader!

  4. This is such a great list! Freezing sandwiches?! How the hell did I not think of this sooner?? And making a morning to-do list is eye-opening for me, lol. I’m actually a great “morning person” but I do struggle to find time to handle everything I would like to in the morning, mostly because I get side-tracked. But I make a to-do list for my workday, so why not for my morning? Love it!

  9. I’m looking for a single cup coffee maker that I can schedule or that works on wi-fi and also does hot water. Haven’t found one yet.

    1. I would love one too! Bonus if it grounds coffee beans too! I haven’t found one but o absolutely love the OXO one still. The water kettle part is such a huge help. I had no idea how many times I’d end up using it when I got it !

  10. I’ve always found that if we start out well in the morning, it changes the whole day. Great tips, thanks!

  11. Departure alarm… brilliant! Now no one can have the excuse that they didn’t know when it was time to leave or what time it is! Thank you!!

  12. We always use the five minute warning to leave, the kids like setting the timer on Alexa. I’ve heard of people freezing sandwiches but never tried it… yet!

  13. Its been such a great idea’s!!! This will help a lot in planning a proper breakfast in morning with such a busy life routine. especially Meal planning on weekends is a must!
