Whether you want to believe it or not, that time is almost here. Early mornings, late evenings, and lots of hectic schedules – it’s time for back to school activities! The long months of summer have come and gone and we only have a few weeks to prepare for the 2019 school year. Preparing for our kiddos to start the new year is challenging in itself but it’s really difficult if you’re a working mama with a full-time career. So in honor of those career women, we’ve rounded up our back to school survival guide for the 2019 school year!
Start Shopping NOW!
Yep, you knew this was coming! It’s time to start shopping for school supplies, uniforms, and everything else – now! Make a master checklist of everything your kiddos will need and try to grab these items the next time you’re out. If you really want to get ahead of the game, stock up on essentials. Anything your kiddos might need later in the year, pick them up now so you’re not frazzled later.
Get As Organized as Possible
Spend some time trying to organize everything humanly possible. This is a great time to go through everything and throw some things out. Make sure everyone knows where everything belongs so you can maintain sanity throughout the year! If you really want to get ahead, try meal planning to save extra trips to the grocery store throughout the week.
Develop a New Family Schedule
Whether you decide to go with post-it notes, an official app, or just a note on the fridge, figure out a family plan that works for you. Make sure you schedule time weekly to talk about the activities for the week. This is a great way to keep everyone on the same page and avoid forgotten projects, games, or meetings.
