Weekday Morning Essentials

When Monday mornings roll around I rely heavily on my family's morning routine to get us up and out the door. After a fun weekend full of plans I know that I have to account for an extra slow pace to get my twins to school and to get my workday started. 

As I tell my clients and have shared on the blog before, successful organization relies on creating systems that work for YOU. Cutting out the guesswork and saving time whenever and wherever you can makes it possible to keep you and your family on track, even after you've hit the snooze button one too many times. 

Pairing categories that work in conjunction are an easy way to create a one stop spot in your home. The kitchen is a great place to practice what I preach, and you can start with your morning necessities. Keeping your lunch packing essentials in a drawer together help with making lunches on the fly, and storing coffee and tea in a cabinet near your mugs gives you a single location to get your morning cup ready before heading out for the day. 

What are your weekday morning essentials? Is there anything you do to help speed up your process to get out the door faster? I'd love to hear about them in the comments section!
