I know I have to leave about fifteen minutes earlier than if I drive, but I get in a quick mile and my daughter gets a quick half mile to get her brain going too! It saves gas (always a good) and we spend 15 minutes talking! Win, Win Win!
I am not a big fan of morning exercise, but this is so much fun, I keep doing it!

It's back to school time. Sales are on, each year the teachers in your local schools spend thousands of their own money getting supplies for kids and classrooms. If everyone out their ( single folks too) spent $25 and got things like gift cards, crayons, copy paper and so forth teachers would have spend less on other folks kids. We talk a good game in this country about caring about education, let's show it.
Most schools will give you a class supply list for the asking, if you don't know what to buy.
I buy Scrip cards from my kids' school. It helps me budget how much I spend at each of those stores and I get 50% of the rebate applied to my kids' tuition and the rest of the rebate goes to the school. It's a win/win situation
I have to drive my kids to school. Instead of heading home after I drop them off, I go for a walk. If the weather is bad, I just head to the local shopping centre for some brisk mall walking. Mornings only half over and I've got an hour of walking in - instead of going back to bed, or getting wrapped up in housework, or running errands.
I bring my head phones and wear my walking shoes, get showered and dressed as soon as I get up.
