Get Organized! A Back to School Checklist for Parents

3 of 9

Bag It Up

For each extracurricular activity your child has—dance class, soccer practice, music lessons—invest in a separate tote bag. After clothes have been washed, have your child put them into the appropriate bag. Make a list for each day of the week to include items needed for after-school activities. Have your child check the list each evening after dinner and gather all the items needed for the next day.
