Can you believe that the kiddos will be heading back to school soon? This time of year can be stressful if you do not prepare in advance. Preparation can help ensure your children have a successful transition and are ready to tackle the new school year.

Get back to school ready in Houston, Texas!

Follow these 4 handy tips to getting prepared and staying organized and your family will beat those back to school blues:

  1. School supplies: Has your child received their back to school supply list yet? If so, go ahead and head to your local supply store and stock up on supplies early. You will beat the back to school shopping crowds and leave yourself plenty of time to make sure you have everything needed.
  2. Organize your backpack: Now that your little one has all of their supplies, help them organize everything in their backpack. Helping your child stay organized will allow them the opportunity to spend more time learning and less time rummaging through their backpack looking for pencils, papers, or other items.
  3. Homework caddy: Your child is organized and ready for the classroom, but what about home? Help them stay organized at home by transforming a shower caddy into a homework caddy! This portable homework station will help them stay tidy at home and, when homework time is over, you can hang it in the closet for easy clean-up.
  4. Maintain: You have done the hard part. All that is left to do is to maintain the organization throughout the school year. You can do this by routinely helping your child get organized. Not only will this set them up for success all year long, but it will teach them valuable skills that will help them throughout their entire life!
