There’s nothing worse than coming home to backpacks on the floor, lost permission slips, and homework not done. There’s a solution for all those problems… a homework station! The ideal homework station has a school calendar, a designated area for backpacks, a magazine file for papers to be signed, and all the homework utensils (pencils, post-it notes, highlighters, ruler, etc.). In order to have the perfect homework station, set it all up in a peaceful and quiet environment.
School Lunches & Afterschool Snacks
If you have a house full of kids, you know just how fast food and snacks disappear. Create designated areas in the fridge and cupboards for school lunches and afterschool snacks. If you’re a super organized mommy, take this a step further by separating the food by weekday by putting the items in Ziploc bags or bins.
