Hi, I am Janet, we are back in my laundry room, and I will tell you why. This door goes to my garage. Right, now I would like to talk to you about a launching pad, which is a way to organize your mornings, so it would be less stress for you to get out of the house. The reason we are in here, is because this is the way my family leaves my house in the morning to get into the car, to go to school or work.
What you need for a launching pad is to find the place that your family exits the home in the morning. This is where you want to leave your coats, possibly shoes, your children's backpacks and briefcases, any umbrellas you might need, or keys. I even leave notes to myself on the door to remind myself and my family of things that I need to do, run errands or practices or some activity that we have later in the day. This is also the place where you want to leave the mail that needs to go out or any items that you need to take with you, like items to be returned to a store or dry cleaning that needs to be dropped off. That way it's ready for you in the morning and you don't need to run around the house looking for these things. If you have a little more space than this; a table where you can set your purse or your keys and items that you need to take with you, is a great idea.
This is a great way to help ease the stress of your morning. If every family member uses a launching pad, then everyday their items they need in the morning are ready to go when they are ready to leave the home.
