Not only should backpacks be loaded up the night before, but go ahead and pack up your returns and items for running errands as well. Coupons, receipts, etc. should be compiled into a neat folder or envelop the night before. If kid’s lunches don’t need to be refrigerated, pack those up as well. It’s a good idea to keep common items such as sunglasses, Chapstick, hand sanitizer, face masks, napkins, and wipes in your glovebox or center console to limit those frantic, mid-commute searches.
