Avoid the last-second rush on school supplies. Keep a running list of items you need to purchase for each of your students in your planner. If you have more than one school-aged child they’re sure to have several things in common on their individual lists. Take note of those items in your planner so you can grab them as you do your regular shopping. If any of your kids have unique items on their list that require a separate trip, schedule it in your planner early. It’s often the out-of-the-ordinary things that are the hardest to find at the last minute.
