Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

Getting-Organized-for-Back-to-SchoolSchool is creeping up on us, and it’s literally right around the corner! Are you ready for back to school? Getting organized is easy with a bit of prep and planning.


Organize Back-to-School Supplies

  • Find the school supply list for your child’s class.
  • Keep the list handy by printing it out or bookmarking it on your smartphone.
  • Check to see what you still have from last year.
  • Make a list of what you need.
  • Stash all the items in a tub or tote for safe-keeping until the first day of school.
  • Label everything. Make sure your child’s items don’t find their way to the Lost and Found.


Organize a Launch Station

  • Designate a location for backpacks, sports bags, jackets and shoes. This can be a spot in the entryway, or an area in each child’s room that is clearly marked and easy to access.
  • Install hooks or add cubbies. Decorate an old chair to hold backpacks in the seat and shoes underneath.
  • Help your child learn to keep everything here for scooping up and heading out the next day.


Organize a School Lunch Station

  • Designate a location for lunch bag/boxes, containers and food. This can be any location in your kitchen that is easy for kids to access.
  • Install baskets with labels for Ziploc bags, plastic utensils and reusable containers.
  • Keep it stocked with healthy food, supplies and snacks.
  • Help your child learn to pack a healthy lunch.


Organize School Clothes

  • Don’t wait until the last minute. You’ll find that selection in both color and sizes diminish greatly over the next few weeks.
  • Have your child try on everything. If it doesn’t fit, determine if it can be passed to the next kid or given away. If it fits but they never wore it, it’s time to get it out of their closet.
  • Make a list of what is needed. Include sizes, colors and favorite brands so you can be prepared to snag any great deals.
  • Review your school dress code before heading out to shop.
