Before we start…we KNOW what you are thinking, ‘back to school…already?!?’. It’s true that it’s not even August, but no doubt that every department store you walk into is flashing binders and backpacks for the school year that is upon us. Within 30 days, most schools will be starting off the 2016-2017 educational term, and we want to help you kick it off right!
Check out these three organizational strategies for making sure the days, weeks and months to come run as smooth as can be! Ideas are courtesy of Good Housekeeping and their article ‘25 Tips to Breeze Through Back-to-School Prep Like a Boss’.
WHAT TO WEAR
If identifying matching socks and finding favorite tops is creating a wayward war zone in your home…try laying out clothes for the week on Sunday night.
WHERE TO STASH SUPPLIES
Between your to-do-list and the family happenings, household items seem to disappear faster than a fresh batch of chocolate chip cookies, right?! Try setting up a command center with designated space for home, education and work folders, plus hooks for keys and trays for common supplies such as tape, glue and pens.
WHAT TO PACK FOR LUNCH
Don’t let the lunch box blues strike from the start; set up a designated cabinet space for containers, meal options and healthy snacks. Consider letting every household member take turns stocking the cupboard and helping each other try new things. That peanut butter-banana-honey-waffle sandwich could be the next big thing! 😉
If you feel like a half-day of help could create a school year with less stress – give us a call! In 4 hours we can take your organizational obstacles and turn them into stellar school year success stories!
All the best,
