With back to school season just around the corner, now is the time to get ready with these busy mom hacks. We’re going to show you how to have a more stress-free start to the school year. After all kids have been out of school for at least a year now, and this will be their first time back to a traditional school setting in most regions around the world.
Fall in Love with Meal Prep
The first busy mom hack for back to school season is the reality that you need to start meal prepping to save money and time! You’re going to have to fall in love with meal prep again. That’s right, we said it! The good news is that there are many online sites ready to help you with grocery lists, discounts, and more so that you can slide into the meal prep world with ease.
We so wish we had this busy mom hack back when we were packing our kids’ lunches. You can start freezing sandwiches so that they’re prepared and ready to go before the day arrives. Making and packing lunches every night or morning wastes precious time.
Buy a loaf of bread on Sunday and make all your kids’ sandwiches that day. Place them in an airtight baggie or container, label them, and then put the sandwiches in the freezer. Your can easily grab these sandwiches now when the kids are ready to put them into their lunch box and head to school each day.
One of the best things about last year was most of us started ordering more items online. Being able to buy back to school gear, lunches, and meals online is a huge time saver. Sadly, this option isn’t always the most cost-effective way, but you can look at your local online ordering options and see what they can do for you this school year.
Ordering school supplies, groceries, and all other back to school essentials online can save so much time. Now you won’t have to find the time to pack up the car, drive to the store, get the kids out of the car, and then avoid the kids asking for 100 things while you’re in the store trying to get the bare minimum for back to school essentials.
We hope that these busy mom hacks for back to school has helped inspired you to learn new ways to save money, cut corners, and find new ways to be prepared for this new back to school season after the crazy chaos you had last school year.
