Whether your kids are in elementary school or in college, we can all use a little help. These hacks can make everyone’s life easier!


  1.  Organize your hair ties using carabiners!


2.  Having trouble getting your kids to eat a school lunch? Why not pack a hotdog? Follow these simple steps from Wikihow and your kids will be talk of the lunchroom!


3.  Do your kids keep forgetting those lunchbox ice packs at school? Problem solved. Just freeze a water soaked sponge (get a cheap-y one or several) in a zip top bag and pack it in your child’s lunch. If it gets thrown away, it was super inexpensive anyway!


4.  A travel cosmetic bag, small hand sanitizer, bandages and tissues are all you need for this DIY First Aid Kit, all for about $2! You could add a card with emergency contacts, allergies, and other medical info too. Perfect for size for your child’s backpack.



5.  I love this study guide!
