Transitioning to fall means the end of endless summer days and the start school morning routines and a need for some DIY back-to-school organization. Still, most moms agree that the transition will go a lot more smoothly if you plan ahead for the change in lifestyle. Whether it’s simple things like a house cleaning schedule or a chore chart for kids, getting an organization plan in place can help a lot, but if there’s one thing that’s harder than changing your own habits to stick to a new routine, it’s getting your kids on board and committed to their back-to-school organization. No sweat, Supermom. We’ve got some organizational tips for home and school that are sure to help your fall craziness.
Back-to-School Organization Problem 1: Forgotten Lunch
No matter if the lunch in question was packed the night before and accidentally left in the fridge to rot (or if packing one slipped your mind altogether), your kid still has to eat, right?
Save yourself a midday trip to the school and make sure your daughter’s backpack is always stocked with a ten dollar bill tucked into a cute and useful coin purse, like this one that comes with two moisturizing lip balms to boot.
Back-to-School Organization Problem 2: Germs Everywhere
Nothing throws off the best-laid plans like an unexpected cold or flu that starts at school, comes home with your kids, and then systematically infects the whole family, knocking everyone out of commission.
You’ve tried buying hand sanitizers to protect from schoolyard germs before, but they met the same fate as all of the missing socks you lost while doing laundry. It’s hard to hang on to pocket-sized sanitizers, but we’ve got the foolproof fix. Try a colorful and sweet-smelling multipack that comes complete with a handy and hard-to-lose holder that can attach to a lunch box or book bag.
Back-to-School Organization Problem 3: Lost Art Supplies
Remember that long list of markers, crayons, highlighters, glue sticks, and the like that were so organized at the start of your back-to-school shopping? Don’t let your forgetful offspring lose them in less time than it took you to get through the list.
Help your girl set up an art supply storage area she’ll be happy to show off in one of Townleygirl’s popular Sophia the First Train Cases (it also comes complete with tons of lip balm for chapped, cold-weather lips).
Back-to-School Organization Problem 4: Your Kid is Like a Nutty Professor
Has your daughter gone back-to-school and started more advanced math and science material, that involves specialized tools like protractors, calculators, compasses, etc.? Your little mathematician or scientist might not be used to carrying specialized tools like this, and they can be easy to forget at the bottom of a cluttered backpack.
Keep delicate, specialized schoolwork tools organized in one place, with a carrying case she’ll be stoked to lug around. Townleygirl’s Trolls Awesome Nail Design Set comes complete with all the nail tools, and glitter one could hope for. Then once she’s done styling, the carrying case works perfectly to hold all the stuff she’ll need to lock down A’s in math and science.
