Page 12 of 39 n Hudson Valley Parent 13 Organization is the key to easy mornings Before I moved, the organization in my room was nonexistent. This made me late to work more times than I like to admit. In my new apartment, everything has a home and it has made mornings a breeze. I even have time for breakfast, now! An easy, cheap addition to your closet that also adds some style is the use of baskets. I have baskets lined up in my closet and they all are labeled and filled with similar objects. I have organized my closet by season and style. Getting dressed in the morning is no longer a guessing game! These are easy switches that can help you and your family in the mornings, too. Getting everyone ready for school in the morning can be a hassle. Between showers, choosing clothes and more, it's a miracle if you get out the door on time. Organize your child's wardrobe and room and take the chaos out of mornings. Teach your child that everything has a home (no more last minute searches for the other sneaker!). Label hangers with your child's name so they know to hang their coats and backpacks there at the end of the day.
