Back to School Organizing Tips

With Nathan starting public school for the first time in just two weeks, I’ve been scrambling to think of ways to get things organized. I had few minutes this weekend and decided to search for some back to school organizing tips on Pinterest. Here’s a few of my favorites:

These Back to School Dry Erase Clipboards from The 36th Avenue are so pretty! I may have to ask my crafty friend to help me make these.

I’ve been trying to figure out the best place for Nathan to hang his new backpack. If I only had more wallspace, I would love to do this!

But this simple backpack station from I’m an Organizing Junkie may be just the thing.

I have to think about packing a lunch for Nathan every day now.  I found these tips from I Heart Organizing to be very helpful.

I love these printable lunchbox notes from Makes and Takes. Hopefully they don’t embarrass Nathan too much! Haha!

And lastly, this list of 25 Make Ahead Back to School Breakfasts, from Second Chance to Dream, is brilliant!

What’s your best back to school organizing tip?

    • I love those too! I’d love to set something like that up, but our entry is not built for that. Plus we use our side kitchen door most of the time and there’s no place (aside from the porch itself) where we could do that. That would work for the fall/spring, but not for the uber cold winters we get.
