First thing you can do is to bring some food, grocery, dates, drinks, etc. at home in advance for next couple of days by keeping their freshness in mind. This will save your precious times standing in food and grocery lines, because during Ramadan specially during evening markets got so populated.
Avoid your leisure activities such as watching tv, texting, games, etc. Instead try utilizing this time in praying, reciting Quran o Hadiths, learning something new about Islam, such as basics and history, etc.
Prepare your children for the Ramadan before: Explain to them what the Ramadan means Muslims for us. Tell them about the reward of good deeds within the month of fasting. So you give them an extra incentive to help along the way. Not only in the kitchen and in the household, but also other people. Whenever you see someone who needs help.
