Are You Back-to-School Ready?

back to school boyCan you believe that the lazy days of summer vacation are almost at an end? Soon we’ll all be back into the regimen of school days, homework and fall and winter activities. To be sure that your kids and, in fact, the entire household are prepared to get back into the groove, it is important to begin well in advance.

A smooth transition will promise a successful school experience. Perhaps these tips will help your family to get prepared.

  • Back-to-school shopping can be daunting. If you start by making a complete list of clothing and supplies for each child as soon as possible, you’ll be ready to shop. Consider online shopping as a time saver, but if you need to visit the stores, at least your list will help you to manage your time and effort. Doing so as far in advance as possible will help you avoid the crowds and prevent the disappointment of finding items out-of-stock.
  • Moving to a stricter bedtime and wake-up schedule overnight would be difficulty. Try a more gradual approach for a better result.
  • Organization is the key to seeing that everyone is where they need to be at the right time. This will be much easier if you begin by pulling together everyone’s schedule into a single calendar well ahead of the first day of school. Start by entering all events that you already know about. Then, when school schedules arrive, you’ll be ready to add them to an organized calendar. This way, you’ll be able to manage the household schedule efficiently.
  • If your child will be new to school or attending a different school during this upcoming school year, then it will be important to familiarize them with it as much as possible in advance of their first official day. Arrange a tour of the school and, if possible, an introduction to the teachers. By taking a walk through the new campus, you can reduce your child’s apprehension and stress and thus better ensure their success during the school year.

Auto Insurance Tip

If you have teens in your family, you’ll want to remind them to keep their grades up since it will help with the cost of their auto insurance once they are of age to get their driver’s license. To find out more about saving money on teen drivers, have a conversation with your insurance agent. The sooner you get the details, the sooner you’ll be able to start guiding your teen to get prepared.
