Five Ways To Prepare For Back-To-School Madness

Posted on: August 20, 2012

For many, back to school means hectic trips to buy supplies, tired kids, and a stressed-out mom. But with a little planning and some smart ideas, you can make it easier on everyone—especially you.

Get kids back on schedule– To help kids with the change in schedules, start putting them to bed and waking them up a bit earlier every day, and start doing it two weeks before school starts up.

Start a calendar– Having a family calendar is a must if you want to keep everything straight. An easy option is a dry-erase calendar up on a door or wall where you keep track of the month’s sports practices, open houses, and your personal schedule. Then erase and start a new one at the end of each month.

Shop early– For the best deals on school supplies, make sure you shop at least a month in advance. Waiting until the last minute likely means you’ll be stuck with more expensive items and stores may even run out of high-demand items.

Plan ahead– Figure out how long it takes to get to the bus or school in the morning. You can even set the table for breakfast the night before to save you time in the morning rush.

With a little planning, back to school doesn’t have to be stressful.
