Back to School Organization Tips

Hard to believe but summer has reached its end and school is back in session!  Here are some tips to organize your new home and help make the transition back to the classroom a little easier.

Set aside room for the paper!  It’s coming – schedules, assignments, handouts – be prepared for the deluge of paper by creating a filing system for each child. Assign different colors to each child.

Designate a drop zone for book bags, shoes, sports equipment. Keep it all in a contained area.

Store snacks at eye level areas in the pantry and refrigerator – to keep a lid on questions and too much rummaging.

Purchase a family calendar and organize all meetings, events and appointments in one spot. This can also be done electronically for automatic reminders.
