  3. Post a morning and bedtime routine illustrated checklist on the wall of your child’s bedroom.
  4. Plan and prepare your weekly meals on a Sunday. Preparing parts of your weekly dinners ahead of time will save you time and money.
  5. Create a homework station for your kids to concentrate on their school work. A trifold board that you can design and organize is a good tool and also folds away easily when not in use.
