Building downtime into your summer schedule is one key summer organization tip. It can be all too easy to cram the days with activities leaving you and your family little breathing room. When everything is go-go-go, the rest of your life starts to reflect that fast pace from laundry piling up to messy kitchen counters.

Downtime in the schedule lets you catch up on life’s necessities, so they don’t get overwhelming. Not to mention that a less busy schedule allows for relaxation and quality time spent enjoying the lazy days of summer. The more relaxed schedule can help you and your loved ones enjoy these long, hot days more before school starts again.
