Back to school is here, that can mean chaos filled mornings if we don’t plan ahead and prepare!  I know that if I try to wing a morning it ends up starting with hitting the snooze button one to many times and ends with three kids missing the bus because we couldn’t find a shoe.  So I try to plan out as much as I can for the week on Sunday afternoons and make sure everything is ready to go for the morning on school nights.

One morning chore that could easily take up too much time is our breakfast routine.  However I keep a few tried and true items well stocked in the cupboard so that we can have breakfast go smoothly every morning.
Cereal is an obvious must, I try to keep a good selection of cereals in the cabinets at all times.  They are an easy weekday breakfast go too, plus my kids and I love it for an afternoon or late night snack!
Cinnamon Buns are the perfect mid week treat when we need a break from cereal.  Oh my yummyness, the kids smell these in the oven and I don’t have to worry about getting them moving and down to the table.  Plus they are a cinch to make, open them up and throw them in the oven for 10 minutes, wa la a perfect hot breakfast.
Cereal and Cinnamon Buns are my two typical morning breakfasts, plus I always keep Go-gurt well stocked in the fridge to pair with the staples, or to grab as they are running out the door.  My kids love Go-gurt and could eat an entire box in ten minutes if I let them.  I also add some fresh fruit to keep some balance in there meal.  Bananas and clementines are our go-to’s because there easy but we also love strawberries and watermelon with our cinnamon buns.
Another great perk of these staples is that I’m earning money for my kids school while we eat our normal breakfast!  I always make sure I choose Box Tops branded cereal, cinnamon bun dough, yogurt, and other groceries.
Box Tops are worth $0.10 a piece for your child’s school, that seems pretty awesome to me considering these are all products that are in my grocery cart anyways.  Plus its one of the largest school earnings loyalty programs in America with over 80,000 k-8 schools participating,  So I feel as though I am putting my money into a trusted program.  Best of all the schools get to use Box Tops cash to buy whatever they need, this is imperative considering each school has its own individual needs and budget! 
So how do I organize all these little pieces of cardboard between school collections?  With a cute little carrier made out of an index card holder and washi tape.
2 rolls of washi tape
Index card holder
Remove any separators from inside the holder.  Then begin wrapping the plastic holder with washi tape.
Add as much or as little as you want.  I like to cover the bottom and then leave most of the top empty because I love the bright coral color of this case.
That’s it! So simple and easy to toss in Lilly’s backpack on Box Tops collection day.
