Let’s set the hectic morning stage. The alarm never went off, you’re not sure where the backpacks are, and lunch hasn’t been packed. Does this sound familiar? In this edition of "Nailing It," our original web video series, we offer simple ways to minimize your morning stress and maximize your enjoyment of your morning coffee.

Laying out the kids’ clothes the night before is a relief in the morning. The little ones can get dressed, slip on their shoes, and run for the bus. Making lunch the night before, too — and we suggest some easy, cheesy grilled cheese roll-ups for the lunchbox — makes for a quick grab-and-go situation from the refrigerator in the morning. We wish you many stress-free mornings so you can get out the door with ease!
