Back to School Hacks

With a new school year under way and three kids, I am constantly looking for ways to be better organized and make the daily routines smoother and simpler. I came across FIFTEEN awesome hacks that will be sure to help my family and I have an extremely more organized, smoother school year. These were my favorites:

  1. Color-coded clock: color code on an analog clock the time allotted for certain activities, so it both helps kids with scheduling and learning how to tell time
  2. Designate a special folder for all parent-teacher correspondence from permission slips to progress reports to any other communication between you two
  3. Keep track of hair ties by keeping them together on carabiners
  4. Organize assembly-line lunches to speed up the lunch-packing process and prepare your kids to transition into making their own lunches with labeled bins of nonperishable lunch items on the pantry shelf
  5. Plan a week's worth of outfits on a hanging organizer, labeled M-F
