Summers are busy from going to the pool, vacation, camps, and more. The days are longer but we seem to jam-pack them full of things to do to keep the keeps from getting bored. There are moments when I think that the summer is harder to keep track of everything than during the school year. With that being said trying to gather things together for the activities planned can be a challenge. Try these Time Saving Tips to Maximize your Summer!
Keep a pool bag packed at all times.
By keeping a pool bag packed at all times you will be ready to just grab and go and not worry about forgetting anything. This is also helpful when going to the pool was not on the agenda and then suddenly appears on it. Make sure to add the following necessary items in addition to other items you need to bring.
- bathing suits
- beach towels
- flip-flops or water shoes
- extra clothes
- beach chairs
- bags for wet clothes
Prepare snacks ahead of time.
Buy in bulk and separate portions into baggies and store in plastic bins in the pantry or fridge. This makes it easy to just grab and go for on the run or an easy snack to get to for the kids. Below is a list of some ideas of foods that are great for easy snacking.
- apple slices
I know this sounds easy said than done but if you can plan out the summer schedule ahead of time it makes it so much easy. You can do it weekly by sitting down each Sunday night and plan the week out. I find that writing it down on a planner and then on a calendar on the fridge helps me out the most.
