Get your Home Back to School Ready

If you have children, then fall is extra busy -- not only do you have to get yourself organized and your home prepared for the oncoming cold, but you also have to get ready for back-to-school. Here are some of the  best (and simplest) home organizing tips to help get you and your family ready for school.
  • Set up a station in the entryway or mud room to store the children's backpacks. This will minimize back-to-school stress, especially in the morning.
 
  • Create a study area for your kids. This can be done in a communal room or in their bedrooms and helps keep books, homework and stationery all in one place. Look at shelving ideas and baskets for easy access and clean up.  Think about a homework area in a room near where you can keep an eye on them, like the kitchen nook or the family room
 Unify Areas Through Color    When merging pieces from different design styles, a coat of paint can easily help you unify pieces. Notice how the modern white floating shelves look right at home with the vintage desk. Originally the desk was black, but after a couple of coats of high-gloss paint we have a duo that is not only functional, but also easy on the eyes. Photo courtesy of Camila Pavone.
  • Make sure you start tomorrow on the right foot by organizing backpacks, making lunches and updating the family calender the evening before.
 
  • Minimize the morning routine by picking outfits the day before. If you're really proactive, use a clothing organizer to lay out a week's worth of outfits.
