#Backtoschool organization tips! It’s now mid-September and seems to be most families are settling into a groove with school BUT there is always room for figuring out good daily systems + solutions.

A few tips about “stations”:
1. Backpack Station: Designate a consistent spot for kids to store their backpacks after school. Choose whatever works best for you– hooks on a wall (that they can reach), a bench in your entryway or a spot in their room. And best to check backpacks with your kids at night to make sure that everything is in them for the next day. Keeping school stuff together and in the same place makes the mornings less stressful!
2. Snack Station: Whether in a kitchen cabinet, pantry or a part of your fridge, group snacks together so kids can help themselves when they come home from school.
3. Clothes Station: It takes 5 minutes at night but it’s very helpful to everyone in the morning. Encourage your kids to lay out their clothes the night before. This can avoid the “oh wait, I have gym class today” as they are walking out the door wearing high heels (ok, just kidding
Homework stations are a larger topic so I’ll cover them in a future post!
