Back to School Organization Tips

It’s that time of year where kids get ready to get back to school. Shopping for school supplies, new clothes and everything else will ensure they are prepared for the school year. Not that your kids are equipped with school supplies, you can consider allocating a storage for these items.

Let’s take a look at some ideas that can ease the stress of getting back into the school routine. A great way to keep the whole family on the same page is to create a family bulletin board. The bulletin board is a visual organization board that can keep everyone updated on the important tasks at a quick glance. Another way is to have a designated area for the kids to do their homework. This should be a spot that is distraction free which can allow them to sit down and focus. Once they have completed their homework, they can proceed with their playtime.

A couple of ideas that can help reduce the stress of a typical school day morning:

  • Are filled with “to-dos” searching for backpacks, jackets, shoes and completed projects can be time consuming. Having a bench with internal storage as well as, coat hooks and a shelf near the door can help keep everything organized altogether. This type of organization system helps corral many different types of items into one area that can be easily accessed. You can consider a built in system for your next remodeling project.
  • Getting dressed and picking out clothes can be a hassle. A simple solution is to print out tags and pick out clothes for the week during the weekend and setting them up to be worn on that day. If you have children who are learning about colors, using different colored tags for on each day can be a fun way to help them learn.
