My morning organization actually starts the night before. I have learned what works for me, so I thought I would share it with you guys.
Marty and I are coffee drinkers, we enjoy our morning cup of coffee, or any time of day for that matter. :) I make up the coffee the night before so all I have to do is turn it on in the morning.
|The coffee is all ready to go!|
|This is what my kitchen looks like right now.|
|Fresh out of the oven berry oatmeal bake!|
I also like to set out my clothes the night before. I know, that's simple, but it keeps my sleepy head trying to figure out what to wear in the morning. I put my clothes on top of the washer, so all I have to do is get dressed and get on with my day.
|I like to keep it simple, denim skirt, t-shirt and a cute pair of earrings, and I'm good to go!|
My morning routine goes a little something like this:
6-6:30~I crawl out of bed.
6:30-7~I get dressed, turn the coffee on, and read my Bible. Yes, in that exact order. :)
7-7:30~I work on getting breakfast together and wake my kiddos up.
7:30-8~Breakfast and clearing the breakfast dishes. While the kids get dressed I will go and fix my hair and do my makeup. I feel more put together if my hair is fixed and I have at least a little bit of makeup on. The makeup is a personal preference, and it literally takes me less than 10 minutes to do my makeup.
8-8:15~We do morning family devotions.
Then after that our day starts with whatever we have going on that day.
I hope, in some way, that this will give you some ideas on how to organize your mornings. I would love to hear if you do any of the things I do, or hear any of the things you do to help your mornings be more productive.
