{5} Tips to Get Back-to-School Ready

On today’s agenda, I’ll give you {5} tips to get back-to-school ready to make doing life simple!

1. Get Back to Your Regularly Scheduled Programming

It’s time to start adjusting your nighttime and morning wake up routines. Start slow and adjust bedtime & wakeups two weeks before school starts by 10 min. each day to ease into the process. If you rush this and force the process too soon, you will pay dearly my friend.

2. Check the Stock Before You Shop

Before heading to the store for school supplies & clothing, go through all the items you have on hand {last year’s supplies, clothes, shoes, etc.} and assess what is usable, in good shape and still fits. Then make a list of what needs replaced.

3. Man the Command Center

Designate a semi-permanent area of your home {not a kitchen table you need to clean off each day} for the school lunch menu, schedules, notes, and homework. Use bins, baskets or whatever you have on-hand for storage.

4. Set up Stations

Let’s not start each day in a crazy panic, friends! Set up a breakfast station the night before, pack lunches ahead of time and have your kids pick out their outfits for the day or week to make mornings feel less stressed.

5. Pantry & Meal Prep

Declutter your pantry and make snack zones for the kids and meal stations for the week. Do your grocery shopping ahead of time and plan out dinner menus. Instead of hitting up a fast-food drive-thru, research Pinterest for easy, quick and healthy meals for your Crockpot or Instant Pot.
