    *Keep keys, outgoing mail, permission slips, or anything else you need to take with you in a basket at the front door.
    *Keep a calendar or home agenda.
    *Bathe children at night instead of during the morning rush.
    *During the cold months, keep coats, boots and winter attire in a central location.
