Back To School

Back To School is here and I hope you made a lot of fun memories this summer with your family.  There is always a lot to do in getting ready with lists of school supplies, technology, new clothes, haircuts, Back To School Night, and more.

Here are a few ideas to help this process smooth and simple……

Back-to-school means back to receiving piles upon piles of artwork, graded tests, and school projects. Keep the clutter in check by displaying the pieces your kids are most proud of on a “gallery wall.”

Ruth Soukup, the blogger behind Living Well Spending Less and a mother of two, suggests hanging several cute picture frames on a large wall in the house and gluing clothespins to them, then inserting kids’ accomplishments. Alternate what hangs on the wall to create your own unique, ever-changing art show.
