Back to reality: Back to School



For many, school is starting back up. It’s amazing how time flies when you are having fun, right?! And yet for parents, back to school is often a welcome reintroduction to schedules and structure…a.k.a reality.
Here is how getting ready for back to school goes down in our house . . .
About a month from the first day of school, I go through the kids entire closet and force them (yes FORCE because they never want to do it) to try on every ounce of clothing.  We make three piles:
    closet cleanout clothes pile
  1. The “giveaway” – clothes that no longer fit or liked.
  2. “I am not sure” – clothes that fit but are not worn or the kids aren’t sure they’ll wear.
  3. “I’ll definitely wear” – clothes that fit and the kids wear.
