It’s that time of the year… school is in full swing, along with the field trips, sports, clubs, and activities that you need to haul your children to during your already busy weeks. So how can you manage multiple schedules, pick-ups and drop-offs, and keep up with your ever growing to-do list?
The experts at Book’s Automotive Service are here to help – we’ve teamed up to offer these tips to help you manage this busy fall school year.
- To do lists. It may seem old-school, but we are fans of the physical to-do list. Somehow, writing out the tasks you need to accomplish in a busy day helps to wrap your head around the day ahead. It can also help you prioritize tasks, so instead of being distracted by the next thing that pops up, you can stay organized and on schedule.
- Keep a calendar. The same concept works for busy schedules. Make a calendar that everyone in the family has access to, whether it’s pen and paper, a white board, or an online/digital calendar, and have everyone keep it up to date. When you’re in charge of getting the kids from home to school to sports and back, seeing how it fits together works miracles!
- Plan your errands. Don’t let groceries, laundry, or mundane tasks ruin your day. Multitask to knock out all your errands in minimum time. When it’s time for car maintenance, the experts at our auto shop in Fountain are here to help! We offer free pick-up and drop-off services so you don’t have to wait around for your vehicle and can get back to your other important tasks.
- Tidy up the car. From kid’s sports equipment to backpacks and grocery bags, it’s easy for your car to act as a closet on wheels. Instead, get rid of anything you don’t need to carry – the tidiness can help you feel more organized, and can even save dollars at the pump with better mileage!
All of us at Book’s Automotive Service wish you a happy, stress-free fall! Drop by our shop in Fountain anytime, or give us a call to schedule your next appointment: 719.382.5691.
