10 Back to School Tips for Moms9:56 AM
When it comes to the kids going back to school, it often becomes a hectic mess of schedule changes and you sit there wondering how you managed to do it the year before. Getting used to the kids going back to school and getting them used to the routine again can be difficult, but hopefully, with this list of mine, it can make it a little bit easier on everyone. (Especially you!)
I've devised tips over the past few years to make my life a little less chaotic and a little more organized. With my daughter going into the 3rd grade this year, I've had a few years already to tweak my plans and still have more to do, but this is what works for me so far.
It all starts with you. Simplifying our daily housework can make it a lot easier as a whole. Set aside a couple of days during the week to get your laundry done and stick with it. Let your family know the days it will get done. I try to get all of my laundry done by Friday so I have the weekend free and clear. Therefore, I strive to do my laundry on Tuesdays and Fridays. Set aside one day during the week that is most convenient for you to dust and thoroughly clean. Try to stay away from weekends unless you have to. Doing your cleaning in one day will allow more time in the other days...you know, you time! Besides daily sweeping, spot cleaning and bathroom detailing, everything should be done on that chosen day.
