It’s that time of year again: back-to-school season is officially upon us. We all know it can be a hectic time of year, what with all of the school supply shopping, hunting for the perfect first day of school outfit, and getting back into the groove of making school lunches. Or are you super mom and started prepping weeks ago for back-to-school season? If so, we salute you! As for the rest of you who are a little late to the back-to-school game, don’t fret! I rounded up a few tips and tricks for getting your home ready for school that will make your life so much easier by the time the first bell rings.
Get on Schedule
Before it gets too close to the first day of school, try and get back into a normal schedule. Laying out clothes the night before, getting to bed by a certain time and, of course, getting up and ready for the day before 9 AM. Summer is great, but we get all off schedule which makes back to school that much harder for us. We started our new schedule a week ago and so far, it’s going great!
Clean and Declutter
This might seem like the type of thing you would do for spring cleaning, but trust me, it’s just as important during back-to-school season. If you can purge a lot of your unneeded and unused things from around the house, you and your family will feel so much more organized and mentally prepared for the school year ahead. It’s kind of like New Year’s Day. You could even have your kids create resolutions for the new school year!
