Back to school again. Wow! Time really does fly. I love the summer. I just wish it would last forever…like when we were kids.
Back to School Organizing For The Kids.
Let’s get started with those going off to college or university. First and foremost, spend as little as possible especially on window coverings. And furniture as well, with the exception of a good bed.
Shopping at local second-hand stores is always a first good option. You can buy everything from dishes to small appliances, sheets, towels, curtains and furniture. If you can’t find good dark out curtains or towels visit a local Giant Tiger or Jysk. Ikea also has an entire online selection for college and university solutions.
When I was younger I moved around the country a lot so I never bought anything expensive or brand new. Except for my bed. I shopped at upscale local used furniture stores for good items. In Barrie visit, All About Used. They have a beautiful store with modern furnishings in great shape at reasonable prices.
If you can’t find a decent dresser or other storage solutions here are 2 flexible solutions that are multipurpose and will fit in almost any space.
The first one fits into closets and can be used for towels, sheets, sweaters – almost anything. Be sure to buy one that is sturdier. If you spend $10 it won’t last long. You need to spend $19 to $29 for durability. This one has drawers to hold small items like socks in place and runs about $35.
The second option are storage towers on wheels. They come in various sizes and colours. Some are nicer looking than others and again multipurpose. And when it’s no longer suitable for your current needs it can be recycled to another space or person.
The point is to Keep it Simple, Functional and Inexpensive.
And now for the younger kids still at home. Hmmm! What might they need?
Most of us are looking for healthy solutions for lunches that are simple. Here are a few lunch boxes that are reusable so therefore friendly to the environment and help you provide healthy choices for your children and yourself with ease.
Concerned about plastics. There are also stainless steel options available as well as leak proof boxes.
And if you would like a few recipes and more information on great lunches check out Momables for lots of recipes and ideas.
In addition to the above, you might find these other back to school solutions helpful too.
