8 Ways To Make School Mornings Easier

Family Eating Lunch TogetherThe back to school rush is here again, which makes for hectic mornings. Most of us have a routine, but some are still pulling up to the school as the bell rings. Eight O’Clock Coffee has been making mornings better for over 150 years, and they have compiled eight tips for stress-free mornings to plan your schedule around the oh-s0-important morning cup of coffee!

1. Make It At Home

Forget stopping for your morning coffee – that takes a lot of time and money. Prep your coffee pot the night before, so all you have to do when you wake up is flip the switch. Your coffee will brew as you get everyone ready and out the door.

2. Buy A Travel Mug

Invest in a great travel mug to take your freshly brewed coffee to go. Make sure it fits in your car’s cup holder.

3. Keep a Family Calendar

Include everyone’s schedules on it right next to the coffeemaker. You can glance at it in the morning and know what’s in store for the day.

4. Plan Ahead

Pack lunches and plan outfits the night before to avoid morning confusion.

5. Grab-And-Go

Keep grab-and-go breakfast foods, like granola bars and bananas, on hand.

6. Don’t Be Rushed

Give yourself a time cushion for unexpected delays (don’t wake up at the last minute!).

7. Keep The Coffee

Instead of dumping leftover coffee, store it in the fridge before you walk out the door. An iced coffee can serve as a nice afternoon pick-me-up.

8. K-Cups

To make mornings even easier, that smooth, rich taste of Eight O’Clock Coffee will be available in Keurig K-Cups this fall.

With these great tips, you can savor those last moments of summer and enjoy a smooth transition back to the daily grind.
