It may be the middle of summer, but Back to School season will be here before we know it. We’re tackling the topic early so that you have time to implement new systems, and slowly ease yourself back into the mayhem that is a new school year.
In this first episode of the series, we are talking to Carly Adams of Tidy Revival. Carly shares practical tips to help tackle the backpacks, lunchboxes, and all the other gear that comes with school. She also shares some tips on how to manage all the paperwork kids bring home on a daily basis.
