Listed below are some back to school home organizing tips that will help keep your home running smoothly, clean, and organized.

Back To School Organization Ideas

Functional Entry Space For Storage

Control the chaos and clutter right at your home’s entrance, by making an entry that will catch everyone well before they get too far inside the house. Create a spot with a seat or bench where dirty shoes as well as other outdoor gears can be removed.

Add more hooks where jackets and backpacks can be hanged. Add the color coded or labeled baskets underneath the bench for the smaller items of every family member. The next morning, each of your family members will leave the house in a much smoother process. So make sure that all of you get into the habit of leaving all their things in their designated spot.

Create An Assigned Breakfast and Snack Station For Your Kids

Create a spot in your kitchen for your kid’s morning breakfast, after school snacks, and even lunches. This can be as simple as a drawer or a whole cabinet filled with food and drinks. This will depend on how big your kitchen is and the space you can allot for this section.

Create A Kitchen Homework Spot

The kitchen is considered as the heart of the home and that means it is a great place for you to set up a homework spot for your kids.

Sort Out Your Laundry Room

Sports and school uniforms, towels, and socks pile up quickly during school week. You should organize your home, especially your laundry room using dirty laundry baskets that are labeled into lights, colors, dark, as well as an emergency basket for things that are dirtier than usual and require immediate attention. You should ask everyone in your home to put their dirty laundry in the respective baskets. If they get into this habit, you no longer have to search in gym bags and under the bed for clothes that need washing. You can even save more time by putting clean items in respective baskets that each of your kids can bring back to their room and put away.

Create An Operations Command Center

Create a well organized command center. Set up a bulletin board, calendar, a place for your mail or paperwork, and a dry erase board for all your to-do lists.
