Although I enjoyed spending the summer with the boys home, I’m ready to get my house back in order and get back on a schedule. With kids running in and out all day long, it’s hard to keep up with keeping the countertops, furniture and carpets clean. After celebrating the kids heading back to school with an annual Mom’s Day out breakfast, I plan to tackle the house and reclaim my house.
Tips for keeping the house in order during the busy back to school season:
Menu planning: Write down a list of meals that you plan to prepare for the week and make a list of ingredients that you will need to purchase. Knowing what meals you plan on making, and having the ingredients on hand will cut down on the infamous “what to make for dinner tonight?” question. Plus, you won’t have to run to the store last minute as you already have the ingredients at home.
Meal prep: Plan simple breakfasts and/or lunches for the week in a grab and go reusable container. I prep all of the kid’s school lunches on Sunday afternoon, often for Monday-Thursday as I let them purchase hot lunch on Friday. Each morning, they can just grab one and place it in their lunchbox with a cooler pack. This helps tremendously during the before school morning rush.
