4 Ways to Prepare Your West Calgary Home For Back to School 

Although the summer season seems to have just started, it’s already time for back to school season! While this can be a chaotic time for most families, there are some simple tips you can follow to ensure that your West Calgary home is prepared for the first day of school. 

This includes: 

1. Create a Designated Study Space

Whether you simply need to clean your child’s desk in their bedroom, or set up a completely new study station, having a clean and designated workspace is key to ensuring your kids perform well in the upcoming year. 

When doing this, make sure to: 

  • Select a space where you can be easily on hand to help with any homework
  • Make that particular space a designated no cellphone zone 
  • Keep items like pencils, pens, extra paper, and calculators handy 

Keeping the space clean and organized will ensure that your child will never have their work disrupted. 

2. Organize Closets

Make space in your children’s closets so they can plan and store their clothes for each school week. Have them try on clothes from last year to see what still fits, so you can determine what to keep and what needs to be replaced. 

Top Tip: Start packing away all summer items, such as shorts and bathing suits, so you’ll have more space for fall and winter clothing. 

3. Set Up a Lunch Packing Station 

School mornings are always the most chaotic time. To avoid this, set up a lunch packing station where you can organize all lunchtime essentials such as sandwich bags, lunch boxes, and any other non-perishable food items in one place for easy grab and go access. 

Top Tip: Why not assign a shelf in the fridge and your pantry where you can place some clear containers filled with fixings for lunch and even after school snacks. By using clear contains, you can easily grab what you need and see when you’re about to run out of something. 

4. Get Rid of Any Clutter

One of the most important things you can do to get ready for back to school season is to declutter your home. Throw out or donate anything you don’t need or use so that you can begin with a clean slate. Not only will this help with organizing, but it will also mentally prepare everyone in the family for the new season: the beginning of school. 


Back to School Season Doesn’t Have to be Stressful!
