On Tuesday we talked about all things back-to-school regarding fashion and clothing. If you missed it, check it out here. Today we’re talking about back-to-school organization. Like I said before, I call this “Mom’s New Year” because it really is a fresh start, getting back into the routine of things. Lord knows I’m excited. Summer becomes one big free-for-all, lazy mornings, pj’s till noon, dinner on the fly and later bedtimes. Basically the perfect reset if you ask me. Then after a few weeks of that I get antsy and ready for a routine, meal planning (check out my favorite pad to do that on) and earlier bedtimes. I’m just ready for a schedule and to feel a bit more organized. You with me? Of course the kids are a tad pissed at first, but once we start gathering supplies and such they get into it and ready too.
So, now you’re buying school supplies, new clothes, and anything else your kiddos may need…It’s a lot! Just remember…the more you plan right now, the less overwhelmed you’ll feel when the household is knee deep in homework, after school activities, and whatever else may come up. Hello classroom volunteering!
Could it be as simple as a few new lunchbox containers (I’m obsessing over these reusable bags..I want like 10 more!) and essentials, it really is the little things that make the mornings + school life run smoothly. I’m ready, are you mama?
