VOLUME 6 : AUGUST 2022
Back to School Edition
A new school year is upon us and that means SCHOOL SUPPLIES! It’s a lot for moms (and parents) to get back in the groove, so why not celebrate with some adult essentials to make this year the best one yet!
If I’m being honest, it isn’t until September 1 (about 2-3 weeks in) until I feel less frazzled. All the logins and back to school nights! It takes a bit of time to settle back in! Not to mention 180 days of making lunches (x3!!!) Whoa!
JOT IT DOWN:
Getting myself organized and digitally is a MUST. I have favorites here to brain dump and organize! From my schedule, to our weekly meals and just a running task list in my favorite notebook! We keep a family calendar up in the kitchen that is home to ALL THE (after school) THINGS! And new, fancy pens are just the cherry on top for all the writing!
Lunch making is a full time job! Although I’d love to say I’m all packed up and ready to go the night before! If you know me, that is not how I roll! Lunch making on the fly each morning! When I get overwhelmed, I take a minute to make a slight edit to my attitude and instead of being annoyed that I HAVE TO, I choose to remember, that I GET TO. With two already in middle school (and 1 younger), time is flying by.
Here are a few back to school essentials I'd love each year! A new backpack from my favorite brand ✅, bento box for lunch on the run or at the office ✅ and a cute water bottle (jazzed up with our new Initial Stickers) ✅ ✅.
I recently discovered this brilliant product to keep our pantry just a bit tidier! It’s a lunch making game changer!
Know that I’m cheering all you back to school warriors on! WE CAN DO THIS, FRIENDS! Hoping you are taking time to enjoy a bit of YOU time as well!
