Back To School Prep Checklist {FREE PRINTABLE}

Back to School Prep Checklist FREE Printable -v

I’d prefer to live in denial or live in a place where school starts in September, but I don’t live in either of those places. For many of us, school starting is just around the corner!

Does the idea of “Back-to-School” fill you with relief or dread? I feel a mixture. There is so much to love about summer, but there is also ZERO ALONE TIME in the summer. And I like alone time. I like to drop my big kids off at school, slowly get my little guy ready for preschool and then just sit in the car for 5 minutes after I drop him off. I really do this almost every time I drop him at preschool … I just sit there for 5 minutes soaking in the fact that I’m alone in the car.

But summer, even being surrounded by my four children 24/7, summer is marvelous too. Gardening, swimming, late nights, late mornings, and days in the week where we DO NOT HAVE TO BE ANYWHERE make summer sweet.

At some point in the summer, though, you have to be aware of school coming and start to get ready. Because I want you to keep enjoying every last second of summer that you can, I put together this checklist of all the things to get prepared for Back-To-School. You can easily follow along the checklist a bit at a time. Take all the stress and last minute rush out of it.

Getting ready for school won’t be too bad. Just think of school supplies. The school supplies in the stores always draw me in. Fresh, clean paper. Crisp, sharp crayon tips. Mechanical pencils full of lead with erasers intact. If back to school starts to feel overwhelming, maybe just hug a bouquet of freshly sharpened pencils until you feel alright again? Try that and let me know how it goes, M’kay?

If you want to think of crazy-making, just imagine me moving To Texas the week before school starts. It’s a good thing I’m organized … or I’d be going even crazier than I already am!!! You better believe I’ve already been checking as many of these things off my list as possible because I know that week will be crazy!

And now it’s your turn – start crossing some things off the list. Winter is coming! School is coming!

Be even MORE prepared for School!

  1. That’s a great list, even if I don’t have kids at home! A working girl can use some of those ideas, too. Continuing to pray for a smooth transition for your move, new school year and family unity.

  2. I didn’t realize you were moving to Texas! Welcome! And don’t let this unbearable heat turn you off – it’ll be better by the end of September.
