Week 7: 5 Tips for a Streamlined Morning


Week 7: 5 Tips for a Streamlined Morning



I don't know about you, but my mornings aren't always this peppy...


That's why mornings need to be as organized as possible for me, but that doesn't mean that they always are. Let's go over a few basic tips that you can do to help mornings move more smoothly.  

1. Coffee, Tea, Green Juice..{whatever your pick} get it ready for go time


Having the coffee pot set on an alarm or grinds filled in the filter ready to go, is ideal.  If you're really on top of your game, you can even take out your cup and set it by the machine.  You can do this with breakfast too.  Set out the cereal box next to a bowl and spoon. Every minute counts if you're running late!

2. Pack your lunch the night before


If you're a person who packs a lunch you can save yourself a lot of time doing this the night before. 

3. Set out your outfit, including accessories the night before



How many days do you have where you wish you would have done this?  Although daunting, setting your outfit outfit out the night before will do wonders in the morning.  

3. Organize the powder room


Keep only the items you use the most in your shower


and cotton swabs, q-tips and brushes within reach


and makeup, perfume and anything else you use organized for easy access

4. List it up the night before



Make a list the night before of anything that needs to be accomplished in your morning.

5. Create a one stop shop at your front door


A spot by your front door to keep keys, mail, the netflix that needs to go out, umbrella...etc. saves time so that you don't go searching if you're running late. 

And don't forget to find a small guilty pleasure before you sprint out the door! Whether that be checking your favorite blogs, using a few squirts of your favorite perfume, or throwing on that new accessory you bought yourself.  You deserve it after all that prepping!

  5. This is such a lovely and helpful list! I love all the images you used, and it's all such good advice. The outfit thing is my demise. Or I should say it was... now that I work from home I hang out in my PJs as long as I want. : )

  8. Great tips and beautiful pics. Ever since having a child, I find it really hard to try and stay organized. My favorite tip on your list is to make your to-do list the night before. Once I get up, there is no stopping not even to make a list! Thanks for the tip!

  13. My mom always had us pick out our outfits the night before when we are younger, and I'm completely lost on morning when I forget to do it. It saves me so much time.

  17. I know I've learned these somewhere along the line, now if I could only follow them. Great tips and your pictures make it even more enticing to follow. Maybe I should take your cue and make lists with pretty pictures next to them, then I'd be more apt to follow them. I love, love, love that dressing room picture from Domino. That's one of my faves I tore out of the mag along time ago and still have it.

  18. This is an excellent list. I recently re-organized my bathroom and it has made a WORLD of difference. Even if I'm not running late, I get happy every-time I see my makeup and toiletries meticulously placed...

  19. Any time that I do anything the night before, it is such a relief in the morning that it's already done. It is like starting your day off the best way possible! Thanks for the reminder :)
