Mommy Tip Monday

I don’t want to sound like I’m tooting my own horn, but I’ve been told quite a few times that I have good ideas. Who knew? So I thought I’d share them with you. I’m going to shoot for once a week…but we’ll see how it goes!! (Mapsgirl, if you’re out there, I think I see another button in my future! 🙂 )

Some of my ideas are not original; I get the ideas from magazines or other blogs, etc. I promise to give credit!! I just know it’s nice to not have to hunt for new ideas sometimes…and to know if they work!

I’ve shared with you Daddy Dollars and Gabe’s Checklist
and notes in lunchboxes.

My tip for today is very simple, yet you’d be surprised at how often my friends say “Wow! What a great idea!” even though it’s so easy. Because mornings are insane and we barely have a minute to spare to get everyone out the door, I keep a set of toothbrushes and toothpaste for everyone downstairs…even one for me. Because I swear if I had to go upstairs and get everyone’s toothbrush and paste in the morning? We’d never brush our teeth. That’s the honest truth. This saves a few minutes and definitely my sanity. Good idea, right?
