I meant to have this back to school organizing post up before the kids actually went back to school.
That didn’t happen.
Between rushing around trying to complete our last few summer bucket list items and preparing for their first days… I barely had time to feed and bathe my family. Back to school organizing projects were not on my radar.
Can you relate?
Now that we are up and running in the new year, I am finally ready to start settling into a new and more productive routine.
Regular gym sessions. Meal Prep. Checking things off my long neglected to-do list. Something about this time of year is so motivating for me. I’ve heard a lot of other people express this feeling lately too; I’m starting to think a back-to-school burst of productivity is a thing. And I say, “Bring it on!”
One of the to-dos that has been on my mind is creating a back to school guide to help busy moms (isn’t every mom a busy mom?) start the school year on the right foot.
I’ve been completing little projects since the beginning of August and today I want to share them with you.
These back to school organizing projects are easy to tackle in small, bite sized doses. I know, because that’s how I was able to finish them. They certainly aren’t things that must be done at the start of the school year. Any time of year is a good time to complete them!

If you find something useful, I’d love to hear about it.
Not much makes me happier than seeing a friend (we’re friends, right?) proudly show me a project she completed after a little bit of organization motivation. Think of me as your own personal cheerleader (woo hoo!).
Now… let’s get started!
