With back to school in full swing, everything turns into chaos and you may find that you have a house strewn with new clothes, shoes, and school supplies. Before you rip out your hair from the clutter and disorganization, this article will delve into ways that you can stay organized during the back to school rush.
- Create a Center for Everyone’s Stuff
When you and your family walk through the door, what happens to all of your items? Do you place them in a pile on the floor, do they get thrown onto the dining room table? If you place a central center, such as a bookcase or storage bin, in the area where you always place your items, things will stay more organized.
Of course, you will have to convince your children to follow suit, but a place for them to hang their backpacks, shoes, and lunch boxes will keep your home much more organized.
- Pull Out Clothes the Night Before
To help keep your routine simple in the morning, consider pulling out your child’s outfit the night before school. This may even buy you a couple extra minutes to sleep in as well. If you find that you still run short on time, consider pulling out the week’s clothes on Sunday night. This way, clothes are already pulled out and ready to be worn.
