10 Back to school organising tips

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

This month on The Organised Housewife I will be sharing more Back to School tips.  As the kids are older now, I will be updating our routine charts and showing how the back pack nook has been revamped.

Below I have listed last years back to school series post.  You will find some great ideas for organising kids school papers, school uniforms, creating routines, making healthy lunch, organising hair ties and more.

What areas of Back to School organising do you need help with?

Hi Katrina,

Your second sentence at the start of the article above says “As the kids are older now, I will be updating our routine charts” but the link for ‘routine charts’ goes to an article about a hotel which reads kids bedtime stories?!

Thanks for all the great tips – look forward to using them once my little babies are school-aged 🙂

My DD starts primary next year so to save money I plan to hit all the back to school sales this year (1 shop in particular has great backpack sales with a free pencil case after school goes back) and then give as gifts next Christmas 🙂 hopefully with the help of your blog, my forward thinking organization will continue once she starts school!

I think that the reason you can’t see some of the checklist as because they are to be purchased and that way they can’t be copied?
