Back to school tips and tricks 2

Is it really August already?  I can’t believe it!

I’m not ready for summer vacation to be over and I’m definitely not ready for school to start.  Wouldn’t it be nice if we could just lounge by the pool all year long without a care in the world?  Doesn’t that sound dreamy?

Well, I guess that isn’t possible so I better stop dreaming and start getting our butt’s in gear for school to start.

I’ve seen so many awesome back-to-school tips that I’m excited to share a few of my favorites today.  I’ve realized that to be less stressed during the school year, it’s all about being organized and prepared ahead of time.


Homework Station – This was a life saver last year.  Everything we needed for homework was right in this caddy.

Family Command Center

Family Command Center with Calendar – I need one of these ASAP!  I love the idea of a family calendar to keep track of events and important dates.

Snack Station

Snack Station – Another station that is awesome!  And you know what makes it awesome?  Your kids know exactly what they can have for a snack so they don’t need to ask you to get it for them.


Lunchbox Planning Printable – I want Connor to start helping me pack his lunches so I think this printable will be helpful and fun.  This will also keep us both from packing the same boring lunches.


Back-to-School Printable Signs – we can’t start school without taking first day of school pictures.  I mean look how cute my sweet Connor is.  I definitely need to remember how he looked on the first day of every school year.  Use Picmonkey to make your own or search Pinterest for tons of free printables.  This is Connor’s first day of school picture from last year.  As soon as I know his teacher, I will make him a new one for this year.


School Paper Storage – Start the year off right with a system for organizing all that school work that comes home.

And finally, get positively prepared with the right pain relief for you and your family at Target. 

I made sure to stock up on Tylenol® while shopping for school supplies at Target over the weekend.  Gotta love Target!


And did you know that TYLENOL® is the #1 Doctor Recommended Brand of Pain Reliever?

TYLENOL® provides strong, fast relief for your back pain and gives you fast relief from your headache pain.  Temporarily relieves minor aches and pains due to: the common cold, headache, backache, minor pain of arthritis, toothache, muscular aches, premenstrual and menstrual cramps; temporarily reduces fever.  For adults and children 12 years and older. Use only as directed.

TYLENOL® PM relieves minor aches and pains while helping you fall asleep and is non-habit forming when used as directed. Temporary relief of occasional headaches and minor aches and pains with accompanying sleeplessness. For adults and children 12 years and older. Use only as directed.


And It’s only a matter of time before Connor gets that first fever of the school year so I need to be prepared with Children’s TYLENOL®.  When it comes to reducing fevers and relieving pain in children, TYLENOL® is the brand recommended most by pediatricians and it’s the only brand I buy. It’s for children ages 2 to 11 years and available in Cherry Blast and Grape flavors. Use only as directed.


I bought a little basket and stocked it full of Extra Strength TYLENOL®, TYLENOL® PM, and Children’s TYLENOL®.  I also added band-aids, hand sanitizer, tissues, hand lotion, and antibiotic cream.  Make sure to store your TYLENOL® products according to the directions on the package.

I love being organized and prepared!
