Back-to-School Giveaway

Hello, friends!
(Sorry it's been awhile.)

By now, most of us have had a few days (or weeks!) of our kids being back at school. While some moms rejoice at this, others inwardly - or maybe even outwardly - groan when they think of all the things "back to school" means.....

morning routines...
packing lunches...
fighting over what to wear to school...
homework woes....
hectic after-school activities....
dinnertime meal planning....

Whew! I gave myself a headache just writing all of that!

Whether you're a working mom or a stay-at-home-mom, back to school time can be tough for all of us. Which is why I've decided to devote the remainder of August & probably most of September to help with back-to-school organization. I'll offer tips & solutions & maybe even some of my favorite crockpot recipes (!) that will hopefully help your mornings and evenings run more smoothly. So be sure to check the blog & Facebook page often!

And today, I'm sweetening the deal and offering a back-to-school GIVEAWAY!
(Because let's face it, we all love free stuff!!)

On Wednesday evening, I will announce the winner of a $25 gift card to Target. They have anything and everything you'll need to help with back-to-school organizing....a corkboard for a family command center, a hanging organizer for your daughter's weekly outfits, cute bins to make a homework station for your kids, and even some last-minute school supplies.

There are two ways to enter the drawing:

1. Go to my Facebook page (link here) and "share" my post about the giveaway.
Please encourage your friends to do the same!

2. Comment here or on the Facebook page with one of two things:
-your biggest back-to-school organization problem, or
-the space that needs the most help after your kids were home all summer.

[Or heck, do both of the above and your name will be entered twice!]

*I look forward to hearing from you, and offering back-to-school tips all month long!*

  1. My biggest back to school organization problem is managing after-school time! Between homework and playtime and practice/lessons and other activities, I feel like I am always rushing at bedtime!

    1. You are not alone, Christine! This is hard for us too. (And I assume it will only get harder as they get older & get involved in more activities/sports. Lucky us!) I do use this schedule pad from Erin Condren to help map out our afternoons....

      I'm sure you could even find one with 30-minute increments on it if that would be helpful!
