Do you prepare for the week ahead of time ?

Today is Sunday so I thought it would be helpful to prepare a little for the week ahead.

I layed out my 4 year olds school clothes for the whole week. I layed out my work clothes for tomorrow and when the baby wakes from his nap I am going to lay out his clothes . Will this really help or end up just a mess ? Who knows......... 

What do you do to help prepare for the upcoming week?

I prepare my lesson plans for the week ahead of time, this way I know if I need to get anything in the way of supplies ahead of time. I plan my outfits for the week, not that I wear many different things, we have to wear a t-shirt and jeans or scrub tops, but it is nice to have some sort of back up. 

Since I don't eat during the day, that isn't a problem...but I do plan my breakfast for the week.

Being prepared means that I don't have to rush, I have time to relax before I head out the door. Oh I get up two hours before I leave to have the relaxing time and make sure my hair is dry before I leave ( I have long hair and usually just leave it straight)

No I don't eat lunch, I drink a lot of water to stay hydrated and if I eat lunch for some reason I end up hungry the rest of the day. I still take my hour though to prep and just relax (I work in a Preschool/daycare).

No, because I am an empty nester. Still never was a big planner.

My daughter (she is 7) will often set out clothes for the whole school week. I don't tho, lol. Sometimes i will make sure i have what i want to wear for work together the night before, andbackpacks put together and stuff, but i don't plan that far in advance for clothing, usually.

Our schedules are usually set for the entire year, but typically as far as school clothes and lunches and things of that nature, just the night before...it takes like 30 seconds to pull out something for my son to wear to school. My daughter also usually puts her clothes out the night before...so does my husband.

I try to be organized but it usually doesn't work.

Nothing. Each day is too different

The only thing I really do to prepare for upcoming weeks is doing all my grocery shopping on Sundays and planning every nights dinner menu. It makes it easier for me at the end of the day when I dont want to think or worry about what I will be doing for dinner.
