Ready for Back to School? We're Here to Help!

By Katie Beltramo

Ready for school? If you're like me, the answer is. . . sort of. Getting back into the school routine can feel just as cozy as a fall sweater after a long summer of late bedtimes and floors littered with damp towels and sticky popsicle drips (wait, is that just my house?). On the other hand, there are papers to fill out, schedules to coordinate, and kids (and parents) who aren't always sure that they're ready for the next step, whether it's nursery school or high school. Here are some tips for ensuring everyone's ready for the first day.

Get those kids rested.

Fuel them up!

Save money on back-to-school shopping

Get organized

Help your little one love school from the start.

Sure, back-to-school season might seem overwhelming now, but before you know it, this year will be routine. And you'll be on to new projects, like making Halloween costumes!
