Get a routine the first few weeks of school, and make a place for your kids and their stuff. A place for backpacks, shoes, coats and sports equipment. Once this routine and system is established, stick to it…it will save you and your kids hours looking for things.
Establish a storage area in your home for extra school supplies. Stock up at the beginning of the year so your kids can always replenish their backpacks and lockers without last minute trips to the store.
Make a family bulletin board for calendars, sports schedules and invitations. Keep everything in this one place so everyone knows what everyone else in the family is doing.
Purge your kids closets and drawers of all clothing they don’t wear or doesn’t fit. Try on everything and make a list of necessities. Head to the stores armed with a list needs and sizes…this will prevent unnecessary purchases.
Make sure you have a special homework area set up so your kids ‘have their place.’ This desk area or kitchen table should have good lighting, comfortable seating, access to a computer and wifi, if needed, and be quiet and away from distractions.

Summer’s coming to an end and school is starting soon. All kids need a place to work at home, a place to put their school supplies, a place to hang their coats, a place to put their shoes so they don’t track playground dirt or soccer mud into your house, and the perfect place for that is a St. Louis Closet Co. desk, cubby or locker.
My kids go back to school in two short weeks and as soon as they come home from their first day of school with lots of binders, textbooks, and other supplies I know they will be able to stay organized with their desks. They have a place for everything. The drawers hold their pencils, pens, markers, erasers, paper, and notebooks with ample room for sketchbooks, books, and fun little gadgets. The shelves on top provide a perfect place to easily arrange their textbooks and binders. And hanging over the desk is a fabric board to hang photos, awards, and their school schedule on. Everything they need is in one place, easily accessible, and organized.
In addition to their desk, as soon as they walk in after soccer practice or piano lessons they take off their shoes, put them on their shoe shelves, hang their jacket and soccer bag up in their Cubby, and there is no mud or cleat marks throughout the rest of the house. Their St. Louis Closet Company lockers and shoe shelves are perfect.

Founded in 1891, Children’s Home Society of Missouri (CHS) has become a well-established nationally accredited nonprofit agency serving short-term and long-term needs of families and their children who have faced severe physical and emotional trauma in their life. They embrace the non-traditional and most challenging cases. They offer a comprehensive array of services including community mental health services, education and training, family support services, and residential/respite care for at-risk families and children who need us most, and in many cases, have no where else to turn. And for those children in their residential care homes, they instill that sense of family by caring for them like they are one of their own children.
Saint Louis Closet Co. and Children’s Home Society believe every child deserves BETTER no matter what their situation. A BETTER foundation, a BETTER life, and a BETTER future. And we know we have to be BETTER because our kids DESERVE it.
