Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it's back to school we go (whistle...whistle... whistle...) Hi Ho, Hi Ho! Well friends, it's that time of year again! The kids went to bed early (first time since summer started), woke up with a little spring in their step (so did we) they then hustled around the house getting ready, eating breakfast and putting their backpacks on! Outside we go to take first day pictures, you know the ones, they stand there and look at you like you are taking a mug shot! We then hear the bus pull up, they get excited (so do we) we rush to get them on that bus. While walking them to the bus stop we secretly can't wait for the bus to pull away! We wave and look sad that they are leaving. The bus turns the corner and we break out in dance! Yes, I was doing the running man, and the sprinkler along with running and jumping in the air like the Toyota commercial! Needless to say, the two of us were excited to have our kids back in school! However, with that we needed to do a couple of things to get Organized. Check out our Mingle to see what we are talking about.
What do you think? Super fun ideas right! Check out how the hangers turned out!
Warning*** I am posting alot of photos because these hangers are so cute!! EEK!! I am crushing on these cute tags from Expressionery using the Laura Kelly Custom Stamp!!! They match perfectly with our Deco Art Painted wooden hangers!
There are 5 colors of Hangers one for each day of the week! Monday-Friday! Choose a color for each day and your kids know what to wear, save on time! Who doesn't love that??
How about this fun Homework Station! We have filled it with our favorite school supplies! Save time finding the supplies you need for your kids to complete their homework by creating a fun "Homework Station" We also included our favorite hand lotion Udderly Smooth, and of corse we had to throw in some candy (not shown)!
By adding in some extras to our Homework Station, filing paper work and signing disclosure documents is easy. With this magazine holder keep your papers in one spot. Now let's talk Back to School Printables by the amazing Laura Kelly! She has customized products along with these fun word searches. As mentioned in the Mingle these would be great to put in the memory books with the kids "mug shots" that you got on the first day! (LOL) Be sure to get your printables HERE!!!
After watching our Mingle, you saw how we saved money by putting together our lunch door hanger. Many have done this, and it is brilliant we must say. However, we added washi tape to our pockets using our color coding system to help the kids keep on track. Example: Monday is Yellow day, they choose their clothes from the yellow hanger, and a lunch out of a yellow pocket! Tuesday is Orange: Orange hanger, orange pocket. Catch our drift! This way you are saving time and are able to do other things throughout your day and in the mornings for sure! Know more fighting with the kids on what they should where! Just lay out the outfits on Sunday, and once a month fill the lunch pockets, and BINGO you are all set!!!! We hope that you enjoyed our Back to School Organization tips and money saving ideas!
