Organizing 101: The Breakfast Routine

I love old housekeeping books.  They are fascinating tomes  full of tidbits and wisdom from the past.  I think of all the women before me that have read them as they planned how to manage their own homes in their own unique styles.  However, there was one piece of advice that I read many, many times and have only recently begun to appreciate... set your breakfast table the night before.

It's a simple thing to do.  But it is such a help with the morning rush.  Just set out the table the night before with any nonperishable items... plates, bowls, cups, forks and spoons, coffee mugs, bananas, bread on a cutting board with a knife, honey, boxes of cereals, tea bags... whatever makes sense in your family.

Five minutes at nice... maybe five minutes in the morning to actually sit and drink your coffee... those women before knew what they were doing.

I've tried that a few times but never stuck with it. I guess since we don't really have a rushed morning it wasn't ever a priority for me. I much prefer to come down in the morning and find the kitchen spotless, a fresh clean slate ready to start the day.

Here from NFF, have a great weekend!

Jenn: That is so wonderful to be able to enjoy your morning. We've gone back and forth on this based on work schedules. With me working full-time and my husband home with the kids, he in particular seems to appreciate anything I can help with before I rush off for the day. I love Saturday mornings where we can just do breakfast at our own pace.

Good idea! One thing I do like to do is get the coffee set up the night before in my preset coffee timer. so when we wake up it's already made.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Have a great day♥
