    My best tip is to get in the rhythm of school a few weeks before it starts 🙂 Getting up early, even making lunches (if that’s what you’ll do during school) just so it’s no big deal when it all starts up. Also, -enjoy- it 🙂 Sometimes it seems like a neverending chore, but you miss the hustle and bustle when the kids are all grown up 🙂

    I think the best survival tip is to keep it simple. Scheduling and specifing certain times for certain events can get overwhelming and is impossible to maintain. Keeping a routine, however, is key. Doing things in the same manner and order make getting through the days and nights much easier.

    My best back-to-school tip is to set up as much of what you need the night before. Have clothes laid out, backpack loaded and ready to go, and anything you can set up ahead of time for lunch boxes (I don’t like making sandwiches and such the night before, but I can have napkins/plasticware in the lunchboxes plus things like granola bars, etc. packed ahead of time. The less you have to do in the morning, the less you’ll forget to do.

    Go to Walmart.

  16. My best tip is to get a List of the things needed for the upcoming school year and to purchase what you can of it during the tax-free weekend.

    Best tip is to make sure you keep your calendar up! Our kids get so many half days and days off that if I don’t keep them straight between the 2 schools, I would so be in trouble!

  18. Leela says:

    Stock up on supplies for the year during the sales.

    Have a family calendar to keep everybody organized.

    My tip is to have a big white board handy somewhere, where everyone can write what their activities are — times and dates — otherwise it’s impossible to keep track of everyone!
