Tips for Getting Your Home Organized Before the School Year Starts

August 25, 2022

Sadly, the summer months are slowly coming to an end, and with that, you may once again be getting ready for the coming school year to start back up. Although you can’t plan for everything—you can make sure that your Weston Dean Custom Home is primed and ready to go in order for you to feel organized and excited about the school year ahead. Read on to see some easy tips you can incorporate into your own home

Create an organized entryway

Even if you do all you can the night before to prepare, the first day back at school can sometimes be a little hectic. One way to ensure that the mornings are slightly easier for both you, and your kids is by creating an organized entryway—whether this is by your garage entry or a side door. This will be the ideal place for kids to store backpacks, instrument cases, sports equipment, school supplies and more. For a simple and budget-friendly organizational option, adding a few hooks on the wall or creating a hanging folder for your kids to place any permission slips or school notes for parents is a great way to go. Built-in organizational cubes, though, can be a better option if you’re trying to stick with your overall interior design of your home. 

Designate a study space

With school projects, homework or studying to do throughout the school year, having a specific space where your kids can go to truly focus on their work is incredibly important. Depending on your floor plan design—a spare bedroom or an upstairs loft is ideal for this, and for an added sense of fun for the kids, let them help decorate the area so they are excited about it right away. Add in desks for your older kids or spaces for your younger children to work on any drawings. Adding in storage options, filing spaces or a cork board could also add greatly to the space. Don’t forget to stock up on pens, pencils, notebooks and anything else your kids might need for any projects they bring home. 

Power up the pantry

In the opinion of your children, the after school snacks might just be the most important thing on the day’s to-do list—so it’s also a great idea to get your pantry organized before the year starts. Put their favorite healthy snacks near the front of the pantry so they can quickly grab what they need once they get back home—and potentially place any snacks that are high in sugar on the harder-to-reach shelves. Also this is a great time to simply go through everything in your pantry, toss out anything that has expired, donate any items you no longer want to a local food bank and declutter the area.
