It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, any day is a good day to start getting organized. Let’s not kid ourselves, the beginning of the new school year can be one of the most stressful. It is the busiest time of year for me. I like to have everything ready to go so we can fall into a nice routine and get all of our school work done in time for the holidays.
So here are some tips for getting your children organized for back to school that you don’t want to miss.

If you’re at my house in the morning there’s a more relaxed feeling in the morning. We’re not morning people and don’t start class until 9. But I remember the rushed feeling when I was in school and I know that you want everything ready to go so you’re not late or forgetful. Here are some things you can do to prepare for the day so it runs smoothly.
Make a Command Center
Running out the door never felt this good.
Make a school binder to go in it with this cute free printable.
Store your supplies in clever ways like using a shoe organizer!
Don’t forget to take some pictures, especially on the first day.
This is a time to unwind, or do exciting activities. While everyone would like to play after school, most of the time there is work to be done too.
Keep them Learning
Designated writing and learning areas help the learning continue after school.
Give easy access to art and craft supplies so they have the freedom to create.
Set up a Study Time Routine so your kids never get behind and learn how to study on their own.
Post a Problem of the Day somewhere irresistible.
