Organizational Tip #3 – Backpacks

The morning rush can be crazy in general. But rushing around to find everything that belongs in the backpack as we walk out the door can be very stressful. So here are some tips to help keep backpacks organized.

Unpack and repack. Kids should be responsible for taking out all their papers and putting them in a pile to review. Permission slips signed and returned. Homework done and returned to backpacks by bedtime. All library books put back in on the designated day. Everything but lunches packed, zipped and stashed by the coat hooks before bed. Check and double check!

Even with all this effort, we can still have that last minute scramble regardless!
