Set up weekday breakfasts the night before

Feed Our Families: Weekday Breakfast Setup

via www.feedourfamiliesblog.com

Remove a few of the variables during busy weekday mornings by doing most of the breakfast setup the night before. Gina of Feed Our Families detailed her process, which took all of eight minutes.

If you haven't already visited Feed Our Families, take a moment to look around. Great stuff for parents trying to balance busy lives while preparing healthy food.

This is a great tip! I do this about once in a week and it makes me about 99% more likely to actually make breakfast!x

I used to do this on Saturdays so I could sleep in. I even would pour the dry cereal and put little pitchers of milk in the fridge.

But all of this would work for busy weekdays as well.

Thanks for this post. I can't believe how many times I've been reading your blog and thought, "Why didn't I think of that??"

Since our focus is saving time for moms going back to school, we're hosting a contest for time-saving holiday recipes, and hoped you wouldn't mind if we put a little plug in for it here. The winner gets $200 from Williams-Sonoma, so we thought it'd be interesting for your readers too. Anyway, here's the link. Thanks again, we love your blog!


Great Tip for helping weekday mornings go a little smoother!
