It’s that time of the year! School buses, packing lunches, dropping the kids off and picking them up.

You name it, we understand! We are right there in the trenches with you.   

If you like preparing yourself and your kids for success and enjoy making lists here are a few tips to help you get back into the swing of things:

1. Invest in a family communication calendar – this helps everyone know what’s going on. This can be as simple as getting a blank dry erase board that you hang in the kitchen or office area. Need more ideas that would work for your family? Here are other calendar options with DIY instructions.

2. Make a Fall cleaning list – start by making an extensive list organized by each room of your home. Then break down the small tasks you will need to complete to help you organize and prioritize. Need help? Here are a few tips we’ve talked about recently:

     a.     Storage ideas?

     b.     Missed Cleaning Spots?

3. Create a homework space – this can be virtually anywhere; however, we suggest a quiet place with limited distractions. With this project, you can get the kids involved! The possibilities are endless! You can pick out new paint, have the children declutter the area by throwing out old papers and notebooks that won’t be useful, and make sure the lighting is optimal for brain function!
