Organization Around The House

Now that kids are back to school, coordinating schedules and planning your weekly meals are a reality again. Become organized in a hurry with these convenient tips.

  1. Layout your kids clothes for the week. Letting your kids help pick their clothes out ahead of time avoids last-minute doubt.
  2. Post your upcoming meals for the week. You can include family nights for dinner, or nights you are going to go out to eat. This allows you older children to plan accordingly.
  3. Establish a command center. This can have the following: wall calendar, chore chart, younger kid visual schedule, weekly meal planner, and paper bins for important documents.
  4. Create a homework station for your children to concentrate on their school work. A trifold foam display works extremely well as you can design it however your child would like. It also folds away and stores easily when homework is completed!
  5. Post a morning and bedtime schedule that has an illustrated checklist for your kids. Having these schedules will help them get back into a daily routine for the school year.
