New Organization For Your Home

With school starting, that means coordinating the whole family’s schedule, along with planning meals for the week. Here are a few useful tips to get organized quickly for the back to school season.

  1. Make pre-made kits and leave them in your car. Tech needs (spare chargers and batteries) in Kit 1. First aid necessities in Kit 2. Homework aids (calculator, pencils, pens, glue stick, scissors, crayons) in Kit 3.
  2. Create a command center in your home. Hang a dry erase board for to-do lists, hooks for keys, hanging files (one slot for each family member, bills and mail) and a calendar.
  3. Store your children’s backpacks and shoes in a cubby or designated cabinet. This will cause less cluttering around your home.
  4. Create a fun homework station where the kids can concentrate. Using a tri-fold that you can design however you like, or a pop down table in their bedroom. Both options are space-saving and very convenient.
  5. Plan out your meals for the upcoming week on Sunday, and even start prepping meals in advance.
