As you all know I luuurve planning for the week ahead. Well....I don't know that I love it, but I love how easy it makes my week. I'm always looking for ways to make things easier, and I'm stepping it up a notch this week. So in my room at school I basically have a mini kitchen in the corner....A microwave, bar fridge and a sink. In my first year of teaching I would spend hours and hours in that room. Quite frequently I'd be there planning till something like 7 or 8 at night. I know...crazy! Since I spent so much time there I'd eat all my meals there...hence the fridge etc. Plus the kids use the microwave for lunches so its really handy. Anyway....I don't need to stay quite that late anymore, but it is really nice having it!
One of the things that take up time at night is preparing my lunch for the day ahead. Well....my new plan is...no more! Last night I made my breakfast and lunch for the whole week. I have all of it ready to go and tomorrow I'm bringing it all with me to school. This way I don't have to rely on the man if I want to walk to school. It also gives me zero hassle at night. Every little thing I can do to save time makes life easier. Ta daaaaaaa
