My Must Have Items for Back to School

School is back in session in just a few days and before every school year, I like to make sure the house is organized and ready for the start of a busy time of the year. I have partnered with my friends at Wayfair to share with you some of my must have items for Back to School time to make sure this mama doesn't go crazy with two boys in school this year!

This houndstooth tweed storage basket is one of my favorite baskets to keep around the stairs so toys that end up downstairs during the day can be placed in this basket and easily brought upstairs to go back where they belong.

With all the numerous projects that come home, this storage cart is a must to store all the extra school and craft supplies because you never know what items you will need to have on hand to complete their assignments.

Another must, must have to start the school year for my own sanity is having plenty of storage baskets in my pantry for snacks! It's funny how kids are ALWAYS hungry so I make sure the pantry is stocked and the snacks are organized in different baskets and it also makes it easier for me to know when it's time to stock up again.

Last but not least is having a command center. With all the school functions and paperwork that comes home, to make sure I don't double book appointments or miss out on a program, I create a school command center where our month is displayed and everyone is aware of where we need to be and when. I know these are just a few ways that keeps this mama sane for the school year but I am sure there are ton of great ideas out there. If you have a certain thing you do before each school year for your own sake and organization, I would love to hear them in the comments below! Thank you to Wayfair for sponsoring this post!
