Helpful Organization Around Your Home

Arranging the family’s schedule and planning meals is all part of the back to school routine. Use these tips to help get organized quick!

  1. Create a homework center. It can be the kitchen table or in an office space, as long as your child has a quiet place to be able to concentrate on their school work.
  2. Take inventory of your kid’s clothes. Go through their closets and drawers and get rid of any articles of clothing that no longer fit them. You can then make a list of what they need and go shopping so you are not rushing around last minute trying to find clothes.
  3. Download a family calendar app (Cozi Family Organizer) so you can see everyone’s schedule, which is color-coded for you. Also, you are able to share reminders and there is even an editable shopping list feature.
  4. Plan your dinners ahead of time. You can save time and money by prepping and planning meals in advance. This eliminates ordering take out if you are prepared.
  5. Have a school supply stash. If your child has a project and you run out of a material they need and it is the evening when stores are closed, then you will have all the items you need. Also buying in bulk can save you cash!
