Get Organized For Back to School

Create a command center: it will be where your bags go, keys, bulletin or message board, chargers, etc.

Print the school supply list: print the list of all the supplies you or your kids may need. Prep ahead of time. In August is when a TON of supplies go on sale at various stores or you can buy standard supplies at the end of the season when they are on sale.

Create a supply area: Have a station where you keep various school supplies in other areas than their room like in a study or kitchen, so you aren't constantly dragging supplies everywhere. 

Master to-do list: Make a list of everything you know will need a place to live like, backpacks, papers to be signed, purses, keys, jackets, schoolwork, etc. Then figure out your organizing plan and what type of organization supplies you may need.

Plan ahead of time: Get a family calendar and write down everything everyone has going on. This way you will know when to plan for what. You may want to use a physical calendar or use something like an iCal, Google Calendar, Cozi or something similar.

Use a desktop file: You will get a ton of paperwork through the year and it is a great idea to have a desktop file to corral and file all paperwork. 

Plan the night before: Plan everything you will need the night before. Put your clothes out, make sure you have everything you need to take with you ready to go, if you can prep your lunch the night before, plan what is for dinner the next day, etc.
