It might feel like summer just started, but before you know it back-to-school prep will be in full swing! For some back to school is within days where many are still over a month away. Want to feel prepared? No problem, follow some of these great tips and you’ll be sure to receive an A+ in no time.

Prepare lunches – Buying and preparing a nutritious lunch is a job in itself. Not sure your kids are eating everything you’re packing? Consider giving them a top-up with a tasty gummy multivitamin like L’il Critters™ Gummy Vites. Made with naturally sourced flavours and packed with essential nutrients, they’ll be prepared for a full day of playing and learning.    

Back-to-school shopping – Sit down as a family and make a list of the items your kids will need for the year ahead. Making a list of school supplies and being prepared before setting out to shop will ensure you only purchase items your children need to complete their daily assignments and have a little fun in the classroom too!

Create a schedule – Parents and kids both fall victim to summer sleep schedules; late nights and junk food are the name of the game. Get your whole family prepared by getting your kids back on schedule.  Provide them with a daily routine one or two weeks before the first day back and they’ll be ready and energized for the beginning of school.

Get organized – Back to school is hectic enough with your little ones, but sending your teen back to university or college is a whole different story. Prepare them for the year ahead by sending along some Arm & Hammer™ Coldwater™ Laundry Detergent.  It gets out dirt and odours while saving money on hydro bills (versus washing in hot or warm water). For the 5 – 6 weekly loads you may find yourself doing with back-to-school activities, Arm & Hammer Laundry detergent will be your new best friend, giving clothes a clean and fresh boost with the power of baking soda.

Stay healthy – Saying goodbye to your kids as they head off to university is one of those bittersweet moments of parenthood. Late classes, hectic schedules and long nights of studying might leave you worrying about their health, especially with ‘student budgets’. Why not send them off with a supply of Vitafusion™ MultiVites gummy vitamins to help maintain their health*? Filled with key vitamins and delicious to bat – forgetting to take them won’t be an issue.

    These are great tips for back to school! My Sara is older now but has registered for college. I will have to give her a few of these money saving tips such as making her own lunches. Can you believe that school starts up again so soon…I find that since turning 50 (I will be another year older on Saturday – yuk) the days pass by far too quickly.
