Getting Organized for the First Day of School

Don't Miss Our Back to School Guide to Start the Year Off Right!
With the start of school, families face new challenges.  School bells ring, but so do early-morning alarm clocks. Get organized now for the best school year ever! These next two weeks are the perfect time to re-introduce a school year bedtime.  Begin waking late sleepers earlier and earlier-closer to the time they will need to rise when school starts.  Shopping will become an Olympic sport - there is just so much to buy. Try to prepare for tomorrow today.  Do as much in advance as possible. Lay out outfits and get the non-perishable items into the lunchboxes at night - this can help academic success as well as teaching your kids life lessons of being organized. A new school year is a fresh start for both kids and parents!  Use these ideas to prepare your home and family for the busy days ahead.
