Top Tips for Back to School

August 26, 2015


Doesn't it feel like just yesterday that we were setting New Year's Resolutions?

It will be September in just a few short days and Back to School is already in full swing. While it's an exciting time of year filled with fresh beginnings, it also can be a little intimidating for children and parents alike. 

That's why we're sharing a few tips to take some stress off your plate and help you concentrate on getting your kids off to a great start for the school year. The good news is, it often only takes a little planning, goal setting, and organization!

1. Plan Ahead

A day planner from Coles is always handy and will help add some structure to your schedule. Get all those "TODOs" out of your mind and on paper. It will help you keep track of important tasks, dates, and appointments. Oh - be sure to get a planner equipped with 2016 dates too so you're covered for the next 16 months!


2. Maintain Good Health

It can be hard to eat clean and get all of your necessary nutrients for the day during this busy time of year. Luckily, there's help! Stop by Sangsters and grab a Multivitamin. Look for one where each capsule contains a list of essential vitamins to keep you healthy and energized throughout your day.


3. Set Clear Goals

Setting goals is a wonderful way to get clear on what you want and they keep you disciplined throughout your day. Vision boards are great for posting up on your wall and pinning visual representations of what you'd like to accomplish. Walmart's cork bulletin board is the perfect place to pin your goals so they stay on top of your mind!


4. Stay Organized

Are you constantly scrambling to find things? Are important cards, keys, and the all-important smartphone constantly ending up at the bottom of a pile in your purse? It's time to get organized! Visit Showcase and get your very own Kangaroo Keeper Brite. It's not just a purse, it's a handy organizer with compartments and pockets to help keep important things easily accessable. 


We hope these tips help you have a stress free school year. Do you have any secrets to ensuring a smooth transition from Summer to Fall? Leave them in the comments, we would love to hear about them!
