Have you ever wondered how you can find the best deals and resources to prepare for back to school? This article is for parents, students and those returning from extended summer vacations-Back to work is here! If you are an educator, homeschool teacher, traveling evangelist, online blogger, whatever the nature of your job is we could all benefit from a guide to prepare for Back to School and Back to Work Vibe. In this article, I will share tips and tools to help you find just what you need this new season of the new school year ahead.
I still can’t believe the last two weeks were filled with adventures in Niagara on the Lake and Toronto, Canada. Read and see pictures all about my experience here! Now that we are only days away from returning to the classroom as teachers and only a week away from entering into the classroom as students, having the right tools from the start can make all the difference. Back to School and even Back to Work has always been a fun time when you enjoy the people you go to school with and the nature of what you do challenges you to grow and improve your skills. Here are a list of suggestions to help you make the most of the opportunity before you.
1st things 1st-Get a Planner!
If you had a Back to School list, this is the first thing you need to plan for a successful year! In your Back to School bag you need a planner. There also some key tools and resources you will want to have in your bag alongside your planner which you can find here: http://bit.ly/BackToSchoolRecommendations
Plan out your 1st week wardrobe & take a trip to the Laundromat
When you take care of the small things then it is easier to tackle the greater things. As a busy worker and student, one less thing you need to worry about the better. Today I encourage you to take that one thing off your plate that you can control. Take that clothing you know you would like to wear to the Athens Commerce Laundromat so you can be ready to make your statement the 1st week of school and work! They even offer you a drop off laundry service for those busy days. They specialize in transforming laundry time into free time by offering a popular service such as washing and folding your laundry to meet your needs! Their typical turnaround time is less than 24 hours for an average load of laundry. If you need it the same day, simply drop off your laundry 8 ( they open at 8 ), and have it ready to pick up in a few hours ( they are open until 7pm, 7 days a week). Time is on your side again with your neatly packaged laundry ready to for and picked up!
See What Back to School events are local to your area
If you are looking for Back to School Supplies and ways to connect in your local community with others preparing for Back to School and Back to Work like you, going to a Back to School Community event or festival is the perfect place to make that connection. The old proverb says it takes a village to raise a child. Begin establishing your village in the form of community or take the time to nurture the one you are already a part of as you prepare to go back to school and/or Back to work.
It’s amazing the difference it can make in a child’s life to make the investment of time and resources during these poignant years of learning and growth. Even if you do not have a child of your own, we can remember at some point what it felt like to be a child. We were once children who knew what it felt like to get that new backpack or notebook and pen to start the new year off productively.
Create your list & Conquer
Lists are everything when you have the looming to-do’s each day, personally I have found lists to be motivating and rewarding. It’s not even about creating the list but checking that to do list off gives a sense of accomplishment as you realize you were able to complete what you set-out to do. Now, create that list you need for a successful school year and work season.
Get your home office or Study Space in Order
Is your space a reflection of you? Does it bring you joy and motivate you simply by being there? If not, now is the time to prepare your space to become a sanctuary to inspire you to do greater things. A sacred space where you can work diligently without distractions and study your way to success. Declutter little by little until you achieve the space you desire.

A good planner is so important! I’d feel lost without one. Great tips for starting a new season of transition!
I am a teacher and I couldn’t live without my planner! These are helpful tips for this busy time of year! Our community has a back to school event called Fill the Bus. School buses are parked at local businesses and churches. Community members bring school supplies to the buses for kids in need. We love this community tradition!
These are great tips! Getting organized beforehand makes it so much easier to get back in the hang of school and studying.
