CALENDARS.COM’S ‘BACK TO SCHOOL’ ORGANIZATIONAL TIPS

My mother always had this book of a day planner that she couldn’t go anywhere without. It went from her desk at work, to her car, to her desk at home and ended the day on the kitchen table. We always knew where it was and to check it before we asked to do ANYTHING. I also had a calendar posted to my door with practices, work schedule, school events, and personal dates written on it so they knew where I was any given day. – Ashton, Marketing

In my family, school supplies are bought little by little, all summer long, so by the time school starts they are fully stocked and ready to go. Then the week prior to school starting we begin the morning and evening school routines, so no one is grumpy about waking up or going to bed once school starts.  – Steve, Customer Service

A friend of mine has six children and all are still in school. She has a cubby for each child with their name on it where they place ALL school related articles: backpacks, permission slips, report cards, homework, etc. That way no papers are lost, misplaced, or mixed up with a sibling’s. Yes, she’s a VERY busy lady! – Jessica, Merchandising

We start by getting our school supply lists early. Then, I put a copy in my purse so that I always have it with me when I see a deal. Our “master” copies are kept on the back of the front door and things are checked off as I purchase them. Then I can always see when I’m heading out what things are left to buy! – Sarah, Marketing

    The biggest time waster in the morning is for kids to decide what to wear. Best time saver – get a 5 tier pants hanger with swing out arms. On Sunday have your child decide what outfits they want to wear for the week. Start at the bottom, drape the outfit over the rung and hang Fridays clothes (shirt, pants, dress, socks, tights whatever). Work your way up to Monday’s outfit on the top rung. Also, don’t forget the gym clothes. This makes so there are no fights in the morning or time wasted in finding the missing part of an outfit or that something needs a button fixed or part is still in the hamper. Everyone starts the morning stress free and looking great.
