Is it really back to school time already? We are starting to see the back to school TV ads so it must be time to get started. I always felt that I had to race and get all the school supplies and new school clothes purchased and organized before the first day of school. Some things can wait until after school begins, of course. Traditionally all the best back to school deals can be found in August, so before school begins is the best time to get organized. Here are a few tips to get you started. Now what happens when the kids come home from school? They drop all their stuff….somewhere. Here are a few ideas to keep organized after school begins.
Baskets: Be ready with a designated basket for each child with a DIY label. Add a basket for mom and dad to hold notes and permission forms that need signing before they get lost!
Wall Mounted Coat Racks: If you had a place right inside the door to hang their coat and store their hats and gloves would they use it? It’s worth a try. Hang a wall mounted coat rack with hooks and shelf storage. Place each child’s name above a hook and hope for the best.
Storage Lockers: If you have the extra space or have a mud room, a cute wood or metal storage locker will hold everything in style! The kids can hang their coats, store their boots and gloves and still have a basket for their school books.
Get all their stuff organized and you will surely be ready for the back to school season!
