The Basics Box

When it comes to the early morning scramble, both parents and kids alike often zip out the door forgetting keys, homework, or lunch. Prep the night before to make sure nothing’s left behind. Craft a Basics Box and put it by the door as its permanent living space. Before you and your kids go to sleep, have everyone make sure everything they need for the next day is stored in the box.
