Hey ladies!! Once a month, we discuss a relevant topic or fun product! Last month, we discussed Young Living Oils…and today, we are discussing a question that I get a bunch…How do I keep myself and the kids organized during the school year? I am definitely not perfect, but I am happy to share what works for our family!
So between the three kids, I get emails from 7 teachers, 1 football coach, 1 orchestra teacher, 2 soccer coaches, and 2 principals. Somedays I feel like it is full time job corresponding with all of these awesome peeps! 😉 So, here are my top 3 tips on how to keep it all straight!
Write it all down
I write everything down in my Erin Condren planner and on a calendar white board near our laundry room! This helps keep everything organized!
The planner is mostly for my sanity, and the whiteboard is for the rest of the family so that they can see our month as well! Soccer games, football practices, birthday parties…it’s all there!
Create a separate email account for your kids’ teachers and coaches
This tip is golden! Before I did this, the football coach’s emails were getting lost among the Gap ads and spam! Now, I can easily find all of the emails that I need!
Also, I make sure to email the kids’ teachers first thing in the morning so that they have plenty of time to respond that day!
Prep it all the night before
Lunches, backpacks, and outfits…we prep it all the night before just so that there is very little to do during our morning routine! This helps things run smoothly, and removes the stress from getting out the door!
What are your best back to school organization tips? I love hearing all of your great ideas! Sound off in the comments! Happy Tuesday, y’all!! XOXO Narci
