4 Back to School Home Organization Tips to Help You Optimize Your Home
With the kids back in school, it’s a great time to optimize how your house is organized. Not only can improved organization help you be more relaxed and productive, but an organized home can help children stay on top of their homework and extracurricular activities throughout the semester.
While taking on a task like this may seem daunting, the relief you’ll feel by having an organized home will help keep you from feeling overwhelmed no matter how busy your schedule gets this school year.
Now that you’re ready to get your home in optimum order, let’s look at these top four back to school home organization tips.
Cut the Stress of School with These 4 Home Organization Tips
- Establish an HQ: Create a space in your home, maybe near the entrance or by the kitchen that can act as your headquarters. Keep a dry erase board on the wall for to-do lists, a calendar for schedules, and hooks for car keys so you have a few less things to think about as you try to get up and out in the morning.
- Embrace the cubby: Whether in their bedroom or by the front door, set up a cubby to store shoes and backpacks. These are the two things kids are most likely to misplace. But by giving shoes and bags a designated home, they’ll be right where you need them when it’s time to head out to school.
- Create a homework station: If possible, designate a homework desk with all of the paper, pencils, and other tools your child will need. Or, just set up a caddy with all of the necessary supplies so your child can turn the kitchen table into a desk when it’s time to do homework.
- Bring on the bins: Even with the explosion of all things digital, school kids bring home a lot of paper. Luckily, all it takes is three bins to keep it all organized; a “NEED” bin for things you and your child still need to use, such as permission slips and event flyers; a “KEEP” bin for things like tests and crafts that you’d like to keep but don’t need have right on hand; and a trash bin for all the paper that you don’t need or want.
