  12. I keep school supplies in stock all year. As I see things on sale or after they clearance all the school supplies, I stock up. That way if the kids need notebooks, pens, etc during the school year, I can just go to the closet and grab one.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Great give-away. My daughter leaves for college in 3 weeks and this would be PERFECT for her!!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. The best back to school tip that I can offer up is to have everything ready to go the night before the first day of school. This helps relieve some first day back stress.

    ReplyDelete
  15. My best tip is to buy LOTS of pencils. They apparently go into some worm hole around here because NOBODY can find one when it's time to work! haha I literally fill a clear shoebox with sharpened pencils and take each child and show the pencil box. No excuses then, right? snicker

    ReplyDelete
  16. I love white boards, lol! I need this stuff for my studio, and for ME - I'm heading back to college next month!!

  27. Fabulous! I would love that combo bullitin/dry erase board. Great stuff!
    My tip: Have a good calendaring tool, be it electronic or paper (it's paramount to keeping me and my family organized)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Sometimes its hard to find a planner that is big enough to actually hold everything that I need it to, so i'm making my own. I think its a great idea for a busy college student to make their own so that they aren't going crazy with tons of folders for all their classes and activities. Its all in one spot

    ReplyDelete
  35. Great giveaway. My favorite tip is to purge often. If you wait until the end of the year to sort through your child's work it's over whelming and you might miss something you really wanted to keep.

    ReplyDelete
  70. As a former elementary school teacher and now a middle school teacher, my favorite back to school organizing tip is less is more. I know everyone wants to stock up on supplies but just don't give all the supplies to your child at once. Split the stuff into four gallon or two-gallon sized ziplock bags and then at the beginning of each quarter, replace and replenish your little ones supplies.

    ReplyDelete
  71. What a great giveaway! The best thing to do for back to school is to get on a similar schedule before school starts! It will make it so much easier to be energized throughout the day!

    ReplyDelete

  78. Color-coded binders and notebooks for each subject were how I stayed organized! LOVE School Supply Season!!!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Great Giveaway... I love to write things down and I believe that is one way I organize my thoughts :) This is my first year with a child in school.. so this would be great to keep myself organized by simply tracking everything down on a family weekly planner.

    ReplyDelete
  80. With my oldest son starting Kindergarten, I'll have 3 kids to buy school supplies and label each and every single crayon, marker, pencil, colored pencil.... I recommend ordering personalized labels with your childs name or initials, or printing some on return address labels!!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Our three children are grown--but I think the main thing that saved us was picking out outfits, shoes and socks, etc. the night before and sticking with it, and I also always set out everything I could the night before for breakfast so only the food needed to be taken care of. Book bags and totes in the same place every night so they could just be grabbed as going out the door. And number one for our children--no TV or playing if homework was not finished. The best thing for me--an extra large calendar w/pen attached so schedules were always at hand. I was a little bit obsessed with organizing but school mornings went smoothly and I think that sets the tone of the day for children and parents alike...

    ReplyDelete
  82. I don't have any tips... that is why I need to win so badly :)

    ReplyDelete
  83. I was just looking for a dry-erase calendar the other day...and this one is adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  84. So, I'm very anal retentive in my workspace and I triple puffy heart love to organize. This would be so perfect for me. I also hoard dry erase markers. But all I have are the fat ones right now, so I could really use those fine tips! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  85. Ve always loved back to school shopping, so much I recently started teaching college! I can't get away. My tip is to give yourself to do lists every week, so you aren't cramming for exams or papers all in one week.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I LOVE WHITEBOARDS!

  89. I have been inspired by pinterest to make a homework board where we can put my daughter's weekly newsletter, any homework that needs to be worked on (and is a weekly assignment so we can keep up with it) and write out her weekly schedule. Last year we put all of her weekly assignments on a corner of our buffet -- not very pretty!!

    ReplyDelete
  93. best possible back to school advice is to encourage your child to SAVE EVERYTHING, you never know when a teacher overwhelmed with more students than anyone can handle will mismark something and your kiddo will be out points, we make a basket with our "done" work categorized by the month it was done so we can easily find it if teach forgets...has saved our grades many a time

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  99. If I had some sort of an organized tip, I'd leave it. But my frugal tip would be that I reuse school supplies. No reason to buy new scissors and colored pencils every year...

    ReplyDelete

  101. My back to school organizing tip is to organize the left over supplies when they come home at the end of the school year. That way you know what you need for the next year when the list comes out. All the left overs from the year before aren't scattered through the house or missing.

    ReplyDelete

  118. Write everything in a planner and make lists!

    ReplyDelete
  119. I think "in & out boxes" plus an organized place (like a file box) to keep keepsake papers and artwork would be a must. Also a big calendar or dry erase board to keep track of important dates and reminders.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Buy extra then what you need then you will have things for crafting or if someone runs out throughout the year and will even have some to start the next year out if something comes up and you need something. Have a good organization system and planner system so you can keep everyone organized and then you will have a smooth operation for where to find things and get things done on time. Designate a place to put papers when they come in the house and a place for papers that need to go back out of the house so you won't loose those important forms that need to be signed.

    ReplyDelete
  121. This would be sooo perfect for my new room at university this year, directly going to check out their website :)

  122. Always have lunches prepared the night before!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  126. My tip would be get back on school bedtime/wake up routines, makes the transition easier, and the kids aren't falling asleep at school. Also resist the temptation to squeeze in last minute summer fun travel. you and the kiddos will be tried and there will be laundry etc to catch up on. save that weekend trip for once the kids settle into school again.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  147. My baby is starting Kindergarten this year, so I don't have much except we are going to do a special shopping trip- just the two of us to go get everything he needs! I'm also going to make all of his lunches on the weekend so that I don't have to scramble every morning to get it together.

    ReplyDelete
  148. I am taking over a room as my personal office, so the timing can't be better!
    My tips for back-to-school, are to purchase school supplies that stay in the back pack, use different ones on the work, and always place work back in bag immediately after completed, set in 'go' zone, so it's ready the next morning.

    Also, we make lunches the afternoon before. Dry goods are in bag overnight, in the morning, we grab the sandwiches and drinks from the fridge, and retrieve the ice pack from freezer, and 'out the door'! :)

    ReplyDelete
  149. Get in the routine of packing everything the night before and getting back to a regular bedtime schedule.

    ReplyDelete
  150. I try to shop the sales to get school supplies at a reasonable price. I also don't let me kids choose "character" backpacks because their taste may change over the year and I don't want them to "need" a new backpack during the year because they no longer like Disney Princesses or Justin Bieber, for example.

    ReplyDelete
  151. I have a little bench where I keep all the backpacks, extra notebooks, pencils, sweaters, etc. The kids know that they have all they need for the day right in the "owl bench".

    I also keep baskets right by the door for each kid with their gloves, hats, and mittens so they can grab what they need for the day as they are heading out.

    Mornings are busy enough so these are things I no longer have to worry about and the kids know the routine so it definitely makes everything easier.

    ReplyDelete
  152. Somewhat in denial that school starts in only 6 weeks, but these products would be welcome!!

    ReplyDelete
  153. Since I'll be teaching for my first year, some of these things would be very helpful! I usually just organize into storage containers based on what the objects are, that way they are separated and I can easily find what I need. :]

    ReplyDelete
  154. Sounds great! Going to university with a baby at home will be a challenge, these would help in getting myself organized enough to do it.

    ReplyDelete
  155. back to school tip - always stock up on extra school supplies while they are on sale and plentiful. then you can restock as needed from your own closet without a trip to the shops

It helps me keep up with class and my sanity!

  174. Shop early so you get the best selection on supplies, and the best prices.

  176. As a teacher, back to school time is crazy around our house! While I'm setting up my classroom in August, I also try to give every room in our house a thorough cleaning - getting everything back to its "home", dusting all the forgotten corners and such. I would love this prize and would probably use parts of it in my classroom and parts of it at home.

  177. I love back to school shopping! My tip is pretty boring, to buy extras of everything and store them in Rubbermaid containers on our basement shelves. If they don't get used this year, you know where they are for next year.

    This is back to school time for me also (I'm a university professor), so what I'd LOVE is tips for keeping our family from falling into the chaos of 4 different schedules. We often get so consumed just trying to keep track of everything that we lose out on time to just be a family. That needs to change!

  178. My tip is to keep all of your school supplies in one place so it's easy for your kids to "shop" your stock when they get their lists from teachers.

  179. My oldest is just starting preschool this year, but learning from how my mom did it, I will probably have either a cubby or a folder for each child to keep track of all important papers/artwork/etc, as well as a master calendar on the wall in the kitchen to help me keep track of our comings and goings!

  180. I like to make sure everything is put together the night before so our family can enjoy a relaxing breakfast together.

  184. I don't have kids, but I feel like life gets busier for everyone once fall hits. I like to be prepared by having meals all planned out ahead of time, that way I'm not scrambling at the end of a long workday.
