How to Tidy Up Every Room in Your House for Back-to-School
Back-to-school likely means back to a busier schedule for you and your family. But with a little decluttering and some smart organizing hacks, you can make this school year the best (and most zen) one yet. Here's everything you need for back-to-school organizing to get your house in shape for the new school year. (And keep your calm!)
Organize Your Entryway
There's a reason the entryway of your home is often referred to as a "drop zone"—and unfortunately, it's because your kids likely drop everything right on the spot when they walk in the door. But you can easily transform the space (and hide the clutter) with a few key organizational tools.
Streamline Your Kitchen Setup
Your kitchen is likely where a lot of the lunch packing, snack making, and even homework happens. So take time over the summer to declutter your kitchen and have it back-to-school ready before the big day.
Tackle the Paper Piles
Students bring home reams of paper every year—whether it's precious artwork or a slew of school notices and permission slips. Fortunately, there are a few options for helping tame the paper tiger.
Prep Their Bedrooms
You might not think about organizing and revamping your child's room for back-to-school—but a few key decluttering and organizing projects can help them get the new school year off on the right foot.
