By Giggle Magazine

Check out these Mom Hacks to help ease from the lazy days of summer back to a structured school schedule.

“Before buying ANY school supplies, take stock of what you have first! Who cares if they are a bit used or sharpened down to the core. A dollar saved is a dollar towards a latte!” – Nicole Irving, Mom of a 8th, 10th and 11th Grader

“Consult the calendar for afterschool activities and schedule meals in advance. Opt for leftovers or quick cook meals on busy nights.” – Lindsey Johnson, Mom of a 7th and 9th Grader

“My favorite back to school shopping shortcut is to start adding things I know are needed (Ticonderoga pencils!) to my Walmart grocery pick up orders during the summer. There is no last minute scramble for supplies after meet the teacher and I never have to step in the store!” – April Tisher, Mom of a 4th, 9th and 12th Grader

“I like to pre-make healthy breakfast options that are quick to warm up in the morning. Mini muffins, oatmeal packets and waffles are a few.” – Jessica Smith, Mom of a 3rd Grader

“When the boys were younger, we would slowly start getting back into a routine. A couple of weeks before school started, we would go to bed earlier and get up earlier to get us all ready to go back to school.” – Kim Blake, Teacher and Mom of a College Freshman and 11th Grader

“No-iron fabric labels are a necessity to help keep up with sweatshirts at school. Labels are also helpful for organizing school snack bins in the pantry to make for easy lunch packing!” – Heather Montes, Mom of a 2nd, 7th and 9th Grader
