Summer is winding down, which means that many families are turning their attention back to the school year. Are you ready for a new schedule to fit around the kid’s school routines? It doesn’t matter if your kids are in public, private, or home school, you’ll want to have good systems in place to keep up with the busy schedules.

Back to School Cleaning

As you are back-to-school shopping, also prioritize back-to-school cleaning so that your home is comfortable, clean, and organized for the school year. The kids are going to be coming and going from the house often, which means that you will have heavy use of different parts of the house:

  • Mudroom: Where the kids drop their backpacks, shoes, and jackets the moment they walk through the door.
  • Kitchen: Lunch prep and after-school snacks often result in a lot of activity in the kitchen as well.
  • Closets: Make it easy for the kids to find clothing to wear by having organized, clean closets.
  • High Touch Areas: Look for any other high touch areas in your home that might need a little extra attention.

Tips for Cleaning Before the School Year

The first step should focus on decluttering to get rid of anything that is not being used. For example, this is a great time of year to go through the closets and take out clothing that no longer fits. Then, you can see what types of clothing will need to be purchased during the back-to-school shopping.

Organization is a key factor after decluttering. Put new systems in place so you always know where things should be put away.

Deep cleaning is the last step. When you finish decluttering and organizing part of the house, then it’s time to pull out the cleaning supplies and wipe away the grime. Deep cleaning is necessary on every accessible surface: the flooring, countertops, bathrooms, windows, floor mats, bedding, shelving, and more.

Also, consider putting together a weekly and monthly cleaning schedule so you can stay ahead of these chores throughout the school year.
