I am only a year in on my “soccer mom” journey, but I went in way underprepared and found myself struggling on Saturdays to keep up. However, each Saturday I kept seeing these moms who had it way more together than me, and I set out to get my soccer mom game stronger. A quick search on the internet, and I found that the Post Cereals brand really supports soccer and soccer families.
Here are my soccer mom survival guide tips with the help of Post Cereals:
Build Your Own Survival Kit (or enter to win one!)
My best tip is to have a bag ready to grab each time you head out the door for your soccer activities. These are the things I keep in mine at all times:
- wet wipes
- triple antibiotic
- hat and some cheap sunglasses (in case I forget mine)
- ice pack (grab as you head out the door or throw in a cooler for a long day on the field)
- water bottles (fill up as you head out the door)
- extra clothes, socks, shoes for your little player
During the month of July, we are partnering with Post Cereals to giveaway a survival kit to our followers. Watch our social media for more!
Make Snacks the Night Before
Post Cereals is more than just a traditional breakfast option. Their website has tons of snack ideas that can fuel your family for your days out on the soccer fields. Here are my favorite make-ahead snacks. I will make these and package them up the night before. They are usually in my Survival Kit the night before.
This granola is quick, easy, and oh so tasty! You can keep it for up to two weeks, but ours has never lasted quite that long.
Peanut Butter & Cocoa PEBBLES™ Cereal plus some peanut butter, water, and oats. I usually have everything I need in my pantry and don’t have to make any special trips to the store.
These Apple-Walnut Muffins are the best breakfast for those early morning rushes out the door. Our summer sports days start at 8am, so it is hard for me to feed my family a sit-down breakfast.
I don’t mind making these ahead of time and having them ready for us to eat in the car on the way to practices and games. They make my house smell so good too!
Set Out Everyone’s Clothes the Night Before
Yes, Momma, even yours. This just makes everything so much easier. Uniforms make it easy to know what kiddos are wearing, but laying everything out the day or night before will ensure that there isn’t a last minute rush to find socks or realize a bag wasn’t unpacked from the week before and now everything needs to be washed. SAVE YOURSELF and do it the day before.
Keep Chairs in the Car
We use our camping chairs so often on the weekends that I have just started leaving them in the back of my SUV. We don’t ever have to worry about forgetting them anymore.
Along those lines, I have started keeping an outdoor blanket and our wagon in the back of my SUV as well just to be safe. I realize that not everyone wants a soccer mom station in the back of their car, but if you can be more prepared at all times, you find yourself in fewer binds.
