We're sharing great tips on making the transition back-to-school easier for the whole family, from breakfast to bedtime.
(Don't have a kid going back to school this year? Our tips can make everyone's lives easier, whether you're a mom of little ones or an empty nester.)
Check out our 7 Back-to-School Tips (the first one is below), and share your own family's school-time strategies in each post for a chance to win a $500 gift card!
Back-to-School Shortcut #1: Grab-and-Go Outfits
Tackle your kids' style a week at a time to avoid AM fashion drama. On Sunday, have your child (with or without your help) match up tops, bottoms and accessories for each day. Arrange them together on one hanger, if possible (pants hangers with clips are great for this), using clothespins to clip smaller items (hairbows, underwear) in place.
MAKE IT FUN: Organize an impromptu "fashion show" to let them model their outfits for the family!
Who picks out the clothes in your house: you or the kids? How do you save time getting them ready?
