It's almost time to go back to school. Get your home ready for back to school with these tips from www.drugstoredivas.net.

We’re about a month away from back-to-school time here in North Carolina. It’s so crazy. I say it every year, but the summer just flies by. We went on a really nice vacation to Hilton Head Island this year, so I at least feel like we’ve had a summer vacation. But I’m still not ready for it to end. I doubt you are either. But, it will happen soon. You, your kids, or (if you’re like me) your husband will be headed back to school in a few weeks, so now is the time to make sure you’re ready. Not just you, but you want to make sure your home is back-to-school ready. We have a few things you can think about now so you don’t rush when school starts.

Get Your Home Ready For Back To School

Create a command center.
We have a mudroom that is right off the garage. It’s perfect if we parked in the garage because we would just be able to use it as a place to take off our shoes and hang up our jackets. If you have an area near your garage or front door (depending on where you park), you can create a command center there. Put in a bench where your kids can sit and tie their shoes. Add pegs above the bench so your kids can hang their backpacks and jackets. You can also put up hooks to hang homework or artwork. And add storage cubes if you have other items that need to be accessible.

Stock up on healthy, easy-to-open snacks.
Last week, we were able to get a package of peanut butter crackers for $.25 after coupons. I wasn’t in the mood for peanut butter crackers at that moment, but I bought them because I knew we would eat them eventually. You know your kids are going to need snacks for school and after-school snacks too. So if you see a sale or have a coupon for healthy, easy-to-open snacks (so your kids can open them themselves), stock up now. I mean, you’re not going to buy bunches of bananas now, but anything packaged will last until school starts. Well, it won’t expire. Can your family go all summer without eating those snacks? I’m not sure.

Start buying school supplies.
There’s a good chance your young kid will need glue sticks. And pencils. And a ton of other stationery items that are actually already going on sale. Each week, I get tons of emails about getting paper for a penny and pens for a quarter. We don’t even have school-aged kids, but I still run out for these deals. We can always use those items at home or Pete can bring them with him to school. If you start picking up school supplies now, while they’re on sale, you won’t feel rushed when you finally get that School Shopping List from the teacher.

Organize dressers and closets.
How much has your kid grown during the school year? Or how many shirts have taken a beating this summer and are torn and tattered? It happens. That’s part of the fun of being a kid. Take some time, though, to go through items that don’t fit or can’t be worn anymore and remove them from dressers and closets. If they’re too ruined to even be play clothes, turn them into rags to clean the house. If they’re still in good condition, donate them. Then, figure out what you need and pick up some new back-to-school clothes, new sneakers, and a fun first day of school outfit. I always loved picking out a special outfit for the first day. It made going back worth it.

Be sure to check our Gymboree too for a ton of back-to-school deals going on now. You can shop Gymboree online, which means you can do it while you’re out at the pool with your kids. Maximize your time!

I take a walk every day. We used to go after Pete got home from school, around 4pm, but now that he’s on summer vacation, we try to go as early as possible. It’s been over 80 degrees lately when we wake up, so if we take too long before we start walking, it’s too hot.

Hot walks and Pete being home reminds me that it’s still summer vacation. It’s still warm out but it’s never too early to start thinking about back-to-school; it’ll be here before you know it! Luckily, Campbell Soup Company products and Walmart have you covered with a variety of savings and easy meal inspiration, featuring great products.

Where To Find Back-To-School Clothing Deals

back-to-school-clothing-dealsIt’s crazy to me that it’s back-to-school time already. The teachers here went back already and kids are following close behind. So that means dressing them.

Part of my favorite thing about going back to school was back-to-school shopping. We were able to pick out an outfit for the first day, new shoes for the year, and then a few new tops and bottoms. Are your kids excited about that too? It’s so different now than when I was in school. See, then, we went to the mall and went from store to store, looking for deals and clearance racks. Now, you can just shop online. And to help you, I’ve put together a list of all the deals I’ve found on back-to-school clothes. Yup, this is basically your online mall, your one stop shopping for back-to-school-clothing deals.

This list will be changing as store deals change, so be sure to keep coming back.
