With children headed back to school, household organization is key to keeping things running smoothly.  Limor Suss, lifestyle expert and mother of two, knows just how to help families stay on top activities, homework, appointments, meetings, grocery and to-do-lists, and so much more.  Here are just a few ideas to put everyone in an organized state of mind.

  • Color code calendars for each member in the household
  • Use a corkboard/bulletin board to post annoucements, keep importants, permission slips, papers to sign
  • Stock up on school-safe snacks
  • Organize pantry and refrigerator
  • Set up a homework bin that has all the back-to-school supplies with ruler, pencils, pens, etc.
  • Set up junk bins for everyone in the family for keys, mail, sunglasses,
