Back to School Organization: Easy Recipes, Snack Ideas, FREE Printables!

Back to School Organization Meal Idea List

The first day of school has come and gone, but if you are like me, you are still trying to get your head above water and get organized. The first day of school I forgot my child’s glasses and at the end of the day I was informed that her lunch was less than spectacular. Apparently, I didn’t pack what she likes. Huh? I know I packed good choices, but they just weren’t a variety, I suppose. I need some help with school organization and thought this list might do the trick!

So how do we stay organized when our lives are so busy? How do we do what we want to do as parents when it feels like the days just whiz by? I am constantly struggling with the balance of work, chores, and kids, which includes giving them as much as I can to have a good day. That means feeding them well and making sure they are happy. I compiled a really great list of FREE printables for organizing and notes to put in your child’s lunch box! I’ve also included some images of how to organize pre-portioned snacks and lunches for easy grabbing. I love the idea of the 4oz cups but
obviously they don’t work for all foods.
