A new school year is on the horizon! Time to prepare for back to school, with the Organized Home Back-to-School Countdown.

Over the first two weeks of August, we'll get organized, gear up and get ready to send the children back to school from an organized home.

Following an ultimate back-to-school checklist, the Back-to-School Countdown includes weekday reminders, free printables and inspiring articles to help you prepare for the first day of school.

During the next two weeks, weekday Countdown assignments will help you:

  • Gather school information and organize paperwork.
  • Set a back-to-school budget and save on supplies and spending
  • Create a school-year calendar and schedule school-related appointments
  • Speed back-to-school shopping and plan children's wardrobes
  • Streamline school lunches
  • Organize children's rooms and homework areas for success
  • Craft a smooth, organized daily routine for the school year
  • Send the children back to school prepared and eager for new challenges!

To make it easy, you can follow the Back-to-School Countdown on the Web, via our RSS feed, on Facebook or Twitter.

Each weekday, we'll post a reminder message with the day's assignments and links to the information and free printables you need for an organized first day of school.

Ready? School bells ring, so it's time to count down to a great new school year with the Organized Home Back-to-School Countdown!
