With summer coming to a close, it’s time to start thinking about back-to-school. It’s hard for both parents and children alike to get back in the swing. With summer off, I know it was hard for me, as an adult, to get back into the groove.  Spending so much time time getting your kids up and ready for school and helping them with their homework, it’s a full-time job in itself.

Knowing how hard it is for me, I set out to help us both with this ongoing dilemma. I’ve searched for the best back to school hacks to make our entire school year easier. Bloggers are our best asset for coming up with tips we can actually USE. Let’s get this underway and get this year started of smoothly. Let me know what worked for you!

Backpack & Paper Station

Get your day started right without looking for everything at the last minute. I find the best stations are those that incorporate a place to hang the backpack, a place for the scholl shoes, papers to be seen and papers to be signed.

Clothes Organization

Organizing the next days outfit also makes mornings easier. With a hanging closet organizer  you can put each day’s outfit onto a different shelf. From Better Homes & Gardens

Get Into A Routine

One of the best tips is getting your kids into a routine quickly.  Using a plain wall clock and the colors of your choice, this allows no question with regard to the schedule. From Heathered Nest

Bathroom Routine

Let’s face it, we are all tired in the morning. Make the morning routine easy to follow by using a bathroom caddy for each child using a storage container with clearly labeled tasks From Systems For Sensory Kids.

Homework Station

Create a homework station by filling a supply bin with everything your kids need to do their homework. From Polka Dot Chair

After School Snack Station

If you set up an after school snack station in the fridge and pantry, it leaves no question as to what snack is acceptable after school. From The Krazy Coupon Lady


One thing that always makes life easier staying organized with kids school lunches. Print it off and keep it on your fridge so you never run out of ideas! From Tastes Better From Scratch
