Can you even believe it’s “Back to School” time already? Where has the summer gone? Do you remember thinking, “I have the whole summer to…” go to the pool, or visit the beach, or read that great novel? Has it happened? Don’t fret, you are NOT alone. The website, organizedhome.com suggests getting organized NOW before the back to school rush sets in. Some recommendations are: easing back into the routine by re-introducing strict bedtimes; creating a central calendar that the whole family will use and reference; sort through, purge and replace school clothing – sales start as early as July, so start shopping now!; avoid morning madness by planning ahead: clothes, meals, inventory of backpacks can be done the night before; and finally, take a practice run to school (and extracurricular activities for that matter!) so you know how much time you need to get there.
