    My back to school tip is to STOCK up on all of those school supplies when those prices are soo low! That may seem obvious, but I always grab as many supplies as I can -- for birthday and Christmas presents -- not just for my kids, but nieces and nephews, too! We also have a "store" at our VBS and the kids love "buying" notebooks and markers and crayons! So, STOCK up! You can use those kind of supplies all year round!

    My best back to school tip is to start getting the kids to bed a little earlier a couple of weeks before school starts so we are not still on "summer schedule" once they have to start getting up early again.

    I hope I understand you that Entry 1 is leaving my comment here (I don't tweet-still have to figure it out). If this entry is ok then here goes:
    My best Back To School tip:
    Each night before a school day, you and your child decide which clothes they will wear, lay them out so they are ready and this should help to avoid last minute chaos and tears in the morning. :-)

    I am SO excited about this post!!! On thing we do to prepare for the school year is make a job chart. Mean mom I know! We start practicing it the week before school starts. It makes our nights and mornings go so much smoother.

    My best back to school tip is to serve my kiddos a special breakfast on the first day of school-usually something fun like shaped pancakes with chocolate chips and of course, chocolate milk.

    My back to school tip is to buy extra crayons and markers, and heck glue as well.

    They make great stocking stuffers, they're also good to put in Operation Christmas Child boxes, and just good to have around the house for the random craft.

    I home educate therefore I make sure Daddy brings me a NICE WARM cup of java to my bedside every morning. It gets me the jolt that I need so the kids can see more energy from their favorite teacher. ;)

    Stock up on school supplies during the sale time. Hit the consignment shops like Once Upon a Child for the younger kids and Goodwill for the Older ones using an alottment of money. With my oldest 2 I give them $50 and allow them to pocket the extra money after they do their shopping. They know to treat their clothing with care from year to year because it could mean more money and their pockets and when I give them a choice of where to shop my older two pick the Goodwill hands down over the more expensive places now.

    My back to school tip is to stock up on super cheap school supplies. This time of year you can get free/almost free supplies at CVS and Staples.

    Get stuff like clothing, book bags, etc. prepared the night before--and make that a habit to do every school night.

    My back-to-school tip is to stay calm and set things out the night before! I remember really enjoying getting things ready and all set out... and now as a Mom I plan on making things go as smoothly as possible the morning of the first day of school! :)

    I'd say make sure everything is ready and packed a WEEK before its time so there is less stress the night before and help pick out the "perfect" outfit.

    Start your shopping EARLY (like a month ago) and keep your eye out for good deals. School supplies can be super cheap if you shop smart.

    The only tip I have is to start shopping for supplies early! Last year I waited and I was rushing around like a maniac at the end of summer. Thanks for the chance, justicecw@hotmail.com

     
    At August 4, 2009 at 11:21 AM , Blogger Meredith said...

    I find that getting everything I know about (gifts, cards, etc) ready for the first month of school so I have more time to focus on getting back on the schedule.

     
    At August 4, 2009 at 12:30 PM , Blogger Heidi V said...

    I start getting my kids to get on a back to school sleep schedule two weeks before school starts so we don't have a grumpy first day!

    Thanks

    My best back to school supply tip is to use competitor ads! Walmart will price match any competitor, so when you see great sales at Target, Meijer, and so on, bring the ad to Walmart for a price match :)

    thanks for the chance to win, my children would love to have this set!!

     
    At August 4, 2009 at 7:11 PM , Anonymous Jamie said...

    Shop at the end of the season when everything is on clearance for the next season. I found $1 lunchboxs last year and a lot of supplies for 5 to 25 cents each.

    Thanks for giving us the chance to win!

    let the child pick out his/her own backpack and lunch bag

     
    At August 5, 2009 at 4:56 PM , Blogger Danetta said...

    My best tip...about 2 weeks before the first day of school, get into a "back to school routine"...set a bedtime and time to get up each morning, start each say with a good breakfast, get dressed and ready and practice school studies (reading, writing, math, etc), basically pretend it's time to go to school and do the things you would do if it where school time, this way when the first day of school does come, you'll be in a routine already.

     
    At August 5, 2009 at 5:43 PM , Blogger Dolphin Girl said...

    My best advice is to be excited. If your kids see you excited and postive they will be more likely to feel that way. :)

    I love making their lunches more special by cutting their food into shapes. Makes the same old more special!!

    Best back to school tip? Well, my oldest is 4 so he hasn't gone to school yet, but I sure like hearing everyone else's tips!

     
    At August 5, 2009 at 10:10 PM , Blogger Angela said...

    My best back to school tip is to pack their lunch the night before their first day of school. It's going to be hard getting back into the routine the first day and trying not to run behind, so this would be one less thing to think about as you're running around.

     
    At August 6, 2009 at 12:02 AM , Blogger ossmcalc said...

    My best back to school tip is to make certain that your child gets plenty of sleep. I teach high school and studies have shown that teenagers do their best if they have 8 to 11 hours sleep each night which I know is impossible. Most of my students have a job, have a child, or are active in sports - none of which allows them to get sleep. It would certainly keep them from sleeping in class.

    Also, parents please do not call or text your children during class. They are not supposed to have cell phones with them during the school day. If it is an emergency, call the office and they will get the message to the student. Just like all of the other rules, it is even harder for the teachers to enforce them if the parents are breaking the rules.

    thank you for letting me get on my soap box,

    my back to school tip is to keep the refrigerator full of healthy snacks that the kids can grab themselves! Also, stock up now on back to school supplies while the prices are low!

    Let the kids start getting their supplies ready a week in advance so they're prepared and looking forward to the new school year.

    My back to school tip is to plan a visit to the school BEFORE school starts...especially if it's their first year going to that school. That way they can figure out where the bathrooms are, where their class is, where everything is! They will then feel more comfortable on the first day!

    My best tip is to get everything ready to go the night before the first day of school. It makes for a much smoother start to the school year. This works for the rest of the year as well.

    We try to stock up on supplies at the beginning of the year while there are some great deals so that we do not need to purchase as the year goes on and deals are not as good.

     
    At August 9, 2009 at 1:10 PM , Anonymous xenia said...

    Definitely lots of sleep, as well as preparation ahead of time. My daughter is starting her first time at preschool next month and I am already making sure to tell her about how much fun she's going to have and all of the new friends that she's going to make.
