Back To School Organization

  1. Start a calendar somewhere everyone can see it, to keep track of everyone’s schedule.
  2. Get in the routine for school a few weeks before the actual start date.
  3. Planning dinners and lunches will help make the shopping list.
  4. Keep a quick-grab bin in the fridge for lunches of healthy sides you know the kids enjoy.
  5. Stay on top of the first paper influx with an accordion folder. This is a better use of space than a large binder.

Seasonal Storage: What You Need To Know

  1. Pack boxes with labels so you can tell what is in each box.
  2. Clean camping gear and beach coolers thoroughly to remove and remanence of food.
  3. Use heavy-duty plastic bins on the bottom if you are not using a shelf. Shelves can make the most of your storage space.
