There are many things to do this back-to-school season but having your home ready and organized can make it all easier. That is why today we want to share some advice on how to clean your home and organize it for back-to-school time.

Get Your Home Ready for the New School Year

This month can get quite hectic. With school supplies to purchase, clothing to buy, books to cover, and backpacks to get ready, it can be tempting to forget about your home chores. However, keeping your home clean and tidy will facilitate all your back-to-school tasks, save you time, and even save you money. Get started with the following tips and prepare your home for the back-to-school season today.

Tackle the Kids' Closets First

Many times the hardest thing is knowing where to start, but when it comes to back-to-school time, the best thing you can do is to start fresh. This usually means decluttering. Focus on the kids' closets and start there. This is important because it is what will allow you to know what your child needs and what they already have. Go through every closet and make sure to pay extra attention to the clothing that doesn't fit your child anymore or that is too worn out to wear. Check their shoes and remove any clothing and shoes that are no longer in a good state. Then, write down what you will need to buy them for the school year based on what you got rid of and no fits. Do they need a new pair of sneakers or more shirts? Take this list with you when shopping for back-to-school stuff.

Backpack Decisions and Back-to-School Tips

The closet is also where children usually keep their backpacks. That means that this is the perfect opportunity to clean out their old backpacks and see what school supplies you already have and which you need to buy. This might also be the time to decide whether your child should use the same backpack or whether they need a new one.

Getting Their Homework Area Ready

Creating a study area or homework space for your child is also very important. Once school starts, children need a dedicated space where they can focus on their work. Make sure that it is a quiet area where there are fewer distractions, preferably away from a window and far from the television. Based on how much available space you have, you can make your child's study area a separate room or a small area of their own room. Whatever the case, make sure that you clean out the area and have at least a drawer, storage box, or cabinet with school supplies and the necessary items for homework. It would also be ideal to have a bookshelf or at least a space to put your child's notebooks, a dictionary, and a thesaurus.

Creating a Clean Study Space

Having carpet in your child's study space or homework area can also help reduce noise and might make it easier for your child to concentrate. However, it is very important that you keep that carpet space incredibly clean. The best way to do so is to have your carpet cleaned by a professional on a regular basis. For most homes, this means 2 times a year, but for spaces and homes where there is constant foot traffic, pets, or children, 3-4 times a year would be ideal. Contact the experts at Charlotte Cleanpro at (980) 349-6335 and make an appointment today to have your carpet clean and your home ready for the school year.

Get the Kitchen Ready for School Time

Make sure that you also take care of other aspects of your home, such as prepping your kitchen for school lunches, after school snacks, and friends over for dinner. This means you should clean out your pantry, clean the fridge, and clear off the counters. Take out food storage containers that you will need for school lunches and place them where you can keep them handy. Also, organize your fridge and throw out any old food that was left in there during your summer vacation. Check the expiration dates and throw away what might have gone bad.
