This week's tip may seem silly if you don't have a house full of kids like I do. But finding a sharpened pencil around this house can be challenging at times. So when I say Sharpen Some Pencils (you may want to hide them as well!) Nothing slows down the production process like not having the tools you need. So check your supply basket or drawer, and make sure you have some sharpened pencils ready to go. Then you'll be prepared when you need one!
