I not too long ago noticed that somebody items their children’ academics Stanley Tumblers, which looks like one thing enjoyable for summer time (I’ve additionally seen wonderful opinions for the Simple Modern version, which is extra economical and broadly obtainable). Our faculty retains a doc on the mum or dad portal of all the academics’ favourite issues, which makes shopping for issues like sweet, flowers, reward playing cards, and many others., straightforward since what everybody likes!

I really like the concept that Kendra from The Lazy Genius coined referred to as “Decide Once” – a system you possibly can replicate repeatedly, so that you’re not all the time ranging from scratch, making an attempt to consider issues yr after yr.
