They also have some great tips to get the most for your buck this year! Starting early is key, so get going!!
TAKE CARE OF THE DETAILS
A new school year is a great time to make sure you are on top of life’s details. We tend to be a little more laid back in the summer, but now it’s time to get back on track with your normal schedule! If you haven’t already, make an appointment for your kiddos to get their yearly check up at the doctor, dentist and optometrist! Get a spot set up for kids to do homework, pick a spot free from clutter and distractions… And. As much as we hate to suggest it, you might start waking everyone up a little earlier. Back to school can be a rude awakening, but if you start setting the alarm a couple weeks ahead of time, it won’t be so rough.
HAVE SOME FUN!
Yes, summer is winding down, but that doesn’t mean the fun is! Plan some fun activities for the fall; it’ll make back to school a little easier on everyone! Maybe a fun breakfast for the first day of school? Or an ice cream cone after the first week of school ends. Maybe plan an end of the summer break party? Let the kids get reconnected with school friends they maybe haven’t seen in awhile!
