The end of summer marks the beginning of school and many kids are less than willing to give up the lazy mornings, hanging poolside and spending afternoons with friends. All of these things are hard to let go of and are compounded when you add in new teachers, homework and what seems like endless tests and quizzes. It’s easy to see why our kids might not be as excited about the first day as we are.

Saying goodbye to summer and hello to a new grade isn’t just hard on the students; Parents have a lot to do too! Buying school supplies and new clothes, coordinating schedules, making lunches and staying organized are all big players on mom and dad’s to-do list when school is in session.

So let’s get organized, save some time and money and help our kids get excited about going back to school. From school supplies to more structured schedules, let’s get ready to learn.

The Stuff (Supplies)

There’s no getting around the need for new supplies each school year and every school has a list for each grade level. Once you get your hands on the appropriate school supply list, skim it over and try to match up what your child needs with local sales. The stores all know your kid needs 50 notebooks and 100 hundred pencils, so they all jockey for a position on your radar with enticing sales and savings. Take advantage of those school supply sales and get as much of the generic items, like writing tools, paper, glue and notebooks as you can. It’s better to save on items that are “consumed” and splurge a little on items that should last all year, like backpacks, binders and lunchboxes.

See my Back to School coupon matchups and deals HERE!

Buying the back to school essentials is the prefect opportunity to include your child and help kick start a desire to get ready for school. Let your kids pick out some of the stuff they will need (like those non consumable items I mentioned before.) This gets them in the school mindset and gives them the opportunity to pick items that express their personality.

Check out poppin.com where they can shop by color for the things they need. You can save $10 on all orders of $40 or more! Use promo code BTS10. (Valid thru 8/31/13). Or maybe just want because that stuff is so cute (I’m talking to you moms!) Another great tip that this site lends to, is color coordination. If you have more than one child heading into school, let each child pick a color and have them stick with it. No more fighting over who’s pen that is. This is definitely a shop that will help you get organized AND stay stylish this year.

Poppin.com also has some great organizational and motivational FREE Printables here.

Clothing is the other unavoidable purchase you’ve got to make each year. Between growth spurts and season changes, parents are forever buying new clothes. Send your kids to school looking good while also knowing you saved some money in the process. Many retail stores also focus their sales on back to school clothing, so look around and find out who is offering the best deals. Look for percent off sales and cash back opportunities to stretch your clothing budget to the max.

Get Prepared

Ah, the 5 “G’s.” Get up, get dressed, get your breakfast, get your stuff and get out the door on time. That’s a lot for just a morning routine; Kids and parents have to cope with a stricter schedule come school time. There’s a lot opportunity for things to go wrong if you don’t properly prepare yourselves. Follow these tips to keep the morning machine running smoothly … And on time.

Try to prepare as much of tomorrow, today. Starting with what to wear, have your child pick outfits that they want to wear that week. Hang each outfit on a hanger and label with the what day of the week it is to be worn (they can choose this too!) This way, mornings won’t be a mad dash to find clothes and you can move on to the next morning task. You already bought the clothes on sale, make sure they get worn too!

Lunch time is biggie as well. If you don’t have to make lunches or whole lunches in them morning, you can spend more time on breakfast and getting the brood out the door in time for the bus. Start by planning a lunch menu to avoid standing in front of the pantry wondering what to send with the kids. After your lunches are planned, try pre packing snacks and sandwiches in advance (the night before or previous Sunday.) Even if you have to assemble the lunch in the morning, (cause who has 7 lunchboxes?) grabbing a prepackaged sandwich bag of pretzels, a ham sandwich and a juice box from the fridge takes all of one minute. Lunch: Done!

Getting out of bed is sometimes difficult, especially if it’s not to play a game of baseball or go to the pool. If your child is heading off to school for the first time, help them get adjusted to a routine wake up time with a new alarm clock. Let them pick one out themselves, or check out this adorable Alarm clock on Amazon. It’s geared for younger kids by teaching them to recognize when to get out of bed and it doubles as a night light.

Bon Voyage!

Get your kids excited by sharing your own excitement and lead by example. On the last weekend before school starts, have a “back to school” party. Let them pick a special dinner and dessert and engage them in back to school activities.

Decorate all that new gear they got with name labels, stickers and iron on patches. This gives their belongings more personality and less chance of being accidentally mistaken for another child’s. Once you’ve got your decorating done, spend time together getting all the supplies ready and packed away in their new backpacks.

After the special meal and decorating session, get inquisitive with your kids and start a casual Q & A.
What do they look forward to about the new year? What do they want to learn about? Dust off your old school memories and tell them what it was like for you in school when you were their age. Sharing their excitement will lead to more enthusiasm.

Whether it’s saving money, decorating school supplies or talking about the future, make sure to include you child in as many aspects of the process as possible. Main keys to keeping them engaged (at least part of the time!) has got to be communication and attention. As summer slips away, hopefully it’s less noticeable and the information in this guide will make the transition easier for both you and your kids. Here’s to starting out the school year out on the right foot. Good luck!
