The beginning of August always signals one thing kids everywhere dread: back-to-school. And with school starting up things can get a little hectic. There’s new clothes, new school supplies, and so on. It can be overwhelming. That’s why we’re sharing a few organizational tips today to make back-to-school a little easier for everyone involved!

  1. Fabric Storage Bins for Everything

    With fall comes a change in the weather and as things get colder, the kids play inside more. Keep everything neat, tidy and off the floor with Fabric Storage Bins. They’re perfect for storing toys, movies and more. Plus they’re chic and can add to your home décor as well!

  2. Closet Organization is Key

    No one wants to go to school without a new wardrobe and we’re sure this holds true for you and your kids too! Stay ahead of the game and prepare for the new influx of clothes with Closet Organizers. These can come in the form or shoe storage, closet dividers and more! Nothing says organized like a neat and tidy closet.

  3. Keep a Coat Rack

    If you don’t have one already, make sure to invest in a coat rack. You wouldn’t believe how much of a difference they make in your mudroom. Keeping the kids coats and clothes off the floor is half of the battle when it comes to keeping a clean mud room and a coat rack will help you do just that!

  4. Organize Your Pantry and Fridge

    Keep your kids lunch box food separate from the rest of your fridge and pantry. This will keep things streamlined on those crazy mornings where everyone is running a bit behind. Plus it lets you easily keep tabs on inventory so you can stay ahead of the game and stock up when needed.

  5. Keep an Organization Station

    The start of school comes with a ton of different papers, notices and permission slips for you to go over. It can be tough to keep it all organized but the best way to do it in our opinion is to keep it all in files. That way it’s easy to see what you’ve done, what needs to be done, and where to find everything.
