In addition to the products above, we have a few tips as well.
First is for school lunches. Make extra dinner on Sunday night and then put leftovers in baggies/containers for the next few days. Sunday night is pizza night in Jillian’s house. She takes the leftovers and puts them in baggies for Taylor’s lunches. Simple, easy, and saves time in the morning.
Another tip is for moms and getting ready. In the mornings, it takes everything out of you to get your kids ready that there seems like there is no time for you. Accessories such as a cute necklace, cute shoes, or sunglasses can help make a simple tshirt or jeans look more pulled together. Take a look at the video to see what Jillian wore to bed last night…she put on a necklace and boots and was ready to go!
