Back to School Organization & Prep
It’s the first day of August (where did July go?!), which means it’s back to school time. If you have kids in school, you likely have seen a back to school shopping list of supplies your kid needs. Let’s start the school year off on the right foot by getting organized and prepared for the year ahead. We’re sharing some tips and products to help you keep you in shape for this new year.
Grab a copy of your back to school shopping list.
Normally you can find these on your school’s website or even in certain stores. Go ahead and grab a copy. If you have multiple kids with different lists, consolidate when you can. Create a master list that details everything you’ll need. Then you can find the best deals and buy in bulk which will help you save money. Since most stores will have back to school deals, if you’re able, it’s often better to go ahead and buy supplies for the whole year now and save them for when you kid needs things later on down the line.
Figure out your schedule and leave room for free time.
The beginning of the school year is often when you sign your kids up for extra curricular activities. Before committing to anything, map out your weekly schedule. Figure out who is going to what and when. By mapping out your commitments, you’ll get a better idea of what your weekly schedule will look like and what you can realistically fit in. Make sure you’re leaving extra space in your schedule to allow for last minute things that inevitably pop up.
Looking for a desk calendar to help you stay organized? It’s a great way to keep your schedule in front of you while working.
Volunteering for PTA?
Are you volunteering for the PTA this year? We have some great products to help you keep things organized. Carpool tags are one great way to help keep your school’s pick-up line run smoothly.
Hosting a back to school fundraiser? It’s a great time to sell customized products with your school’s logo on them. We shared some ideas here. Pop Sockets are normally a great seller. Share your school name and logo with us and we can get those printed for you!
Don’t know what Pop Sockets are? They stick flat to the back of your phone, tablet, or case with a reusable gel. Then they are extended they become a stand for your phone making it easy to watch videos or take photos. You can also use it as extra grip while texting.
Here’s to a great school year!
