The new "hook nook" has eased my night time preparation tremendously and makes my mornings simpler. I now pack lunches directly into bags so they are never forgotten. I remember to check the kids' knapsacks for homework and sign the paperwork every night. I even remember to put the folders and loose leafs back into their knapsacks. I can't forget because I see the hooks as I leave the kitchen in the evening. The kids now have a place to put their shoes so they are never lost and we don't have to search for them in the morning.
I can't believe it took me this long to think of it! Do you have a nook?
