My son is not a morning person so before he goes to bed he has to to pick out his clothes, what he wants for breakfast and we make his lunch the night before. The allows him more time to sleep in the morning. Also, then we are not having to wait for him to "pick" everything. We know it is ready to go in the morning. Also, I am trying to get myself ready for work the next day so I pick out my clothes as well so I am not standing in the closet trying to figure out what to wear. It just makes the mornings run so much smoother.
