Level-Up Your Morning Routine

I’d like to thank Folgers for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.

I seem to have inherited my love for coffee from both of my parents.

When I was a kid, I didn’t really understand why my parents couldn’t seem to make it out the front door without a cup of coffee in hand, but as a busy working mom of two, let’s just say that I totally get it now. Totally.

Of course, there was one thing I loved about coffee when I was a kid. I wasn’t allowed to drink it, but I can still remember sticking my face into my grandma’s can of Folgers and inhaling that amazing aroma. I love that when I crack open a new container of new Folgers Perfect Measures Coffee, I’m greeted with that same fabulous coffee scent, but instead of having to scoop out my coffee (which let’s face it, always makes a mess), I can easily grab a tab or three.

Making my morning routine easier is a pretty big priority in my life. With a business to run, two kids, pets, a household to maintain and all of our activities, my schedule is pretty hectic. I find that my days always go smoother when I can streamline my routine in the morning. A smooth morning means a more productive day!

I usually brew my coffee first thing in the morning. I’m talking pajama-wearing, tired, blurry-eyed, kids howling for breakfast first thing in the morning.

With Folgers Perfect Measures, I can make the perfect pot of coffee every time. The tabs are so easy to grab, pop into the coffee maker and brew.

Aside from the mess that traditional scooping can make, I hate not knowing how many scoops I’ve put in. It seems like something will distract me in the middle of my coffee routine every morning, and there I stand wondering if I’ve already put in three scoops. Or was it three? It’s too early for this—I just want my coffee!

It’s easy to see how many scoops (tabs) you’ve used with Folgers Perfect Measures!

I recently read an interested survey conducted by Folgers about coffee drinkers in my area.

Over half of Columbus coffee drinkers feel energized (55%) and motivated (53%) when they get the perfect cup of coffee, and I guess I fall into that group. There’s just something about the perfect cup of coffee first thing in the morning that makes me feel refreshed and ready to face my day.

Folgers Perfect Measures coffee tabs are nothing but 100% pure coffee. The tableting process uses extreme force to compress the tablets together without the use of additives. I love that.

In addition to having the perfect, easy-to-brew cup of coffee in the morning, I also like to save time by getting a few things ready the night before.

It’s amazing how much time you can save by simply pulling out your outfit and shoes for the next day before going to bed.

On days when my kids have school, I save time by making their lunches the night before.

Another way I save time in the morning and avoid certain time-wasting pitfalls is to avoid my phone until business hours start. I find that if I start looking through my email and social media before my workday officially beings I tend to get caught-up and it takes me forever to get my kids and myself ready.

I’ve made a rule for myself that social media and email takes place only during a certain window of working hours. It really helps me keep my focus where it belongs!

I’d love to hear your tips for streamlining your morning routine!
