Secrets of Success

Bonus: this keeps you busy in the evenings when you might be prone to snacking! It's also fun to get the kids in on - my daughter loves choosing her outfit for the next day and laying it across a chair so she can dress herself in the morning.

  • I always used to do things in the morning ironing etc, things in bag but lately I have started doing things on a sunday ready for the week ahead and although I really struggle to do this- I am a great procastinator - it really does save time, and I find I'm more relaxed to face the day - by LOSINGLUCY
  • I have to do this, otherwise we would never get out of the house in the morning. On days I don't do everything the night before we tend to forget something. - by COMEUNDONE87
