Although it pains me to say this, school is starting up again. This Summer was really wonderful for me and hopefully for all my readers. It has been so much fun blogging this Summer and I cannot wait to bring it into the Fall. I have so many exciting posts lined up for this coming Fall and Winter and I am ecstatic to show you all. Since school is back in session I thought it was appropriate to share with you back to school hacks. These hacks are going to save you time and energy in the morning, will make your life easier, and will make school even better, all of which is an awesome way to start off the new school year!
These past few weeks I have been slacking on blogging but once the Fall starts and school is up and running my schedule will return to normal. We have been on vacation for these past few weeks, on and off, and since it is Summer I wanted to get away from blogging and relax. But, also a big thanks to all of my new followers I received this past week. Welcome to my blog 🙂 You can read all about me and my uploading schedule here.
And I hope everyone has a great start to the school year and a great start to going back to work 🙂
ENJOY the post!
The read, snack, repeat method
Easy study tips
Don’t pay too much for lunch ice packs
To keep lunches cold, soak the sponges in water, place one per Ziploc bag, and put them in the freezer. As the sponges melt, they will reabsorb the water so you can just toss them back in the freezer after school!
Add bling to school lockers for a cheap price
Dollar Tree has a lot of great items for decorating your locker, mirrors, dry-erase boards, glam fur (can be used for locker carpet), washi tape for decorating, picture frames, colorful pencil cups, magnets, double-sided signs and much for, all for great low prices!
At least once or maybe more you are going to need a band-aid during school. It is a great idea to carry around a little first aid kit so if you do need a Band-Aid or hurt yourself you have tools right there!
Create your own clothes organizer
Label each bin for a day of the week and put one outfit in each bin, so that way you won’t have to spend wasted minutes sorting through the closet trying to find an outfit. This is especially awful if you are in a rush 🙁 Using this method will save you time and your clothes will be all laid out for you 🙂
Stock up on supplies for projects NOW for cheap!
The Dollar Tree sells great project supplies for only $1.00! You cannot beat that 🙂 Instead of going to Michael’s and spending $20.00 on poster board, markers, paint, glue, you can go to the Dollar Tree and spend 1/4 of the price 🙂
I found these hacks on hip2save.com
Erase pencil marks using your lunch.
Say your pencil eraser runs out, and you really need to remove some pencil marks. Yeah, you could just ask the guy sitting in the desk next to yours to loan you one, but why do that when you can do something more creative? Tear a little bread off the sandwich in your lunch sack and use it to erase your pencil marks. Apparently bread was used to erase graphite before the rubber eraser was invented.
Attach your papers together without a stapler.
I can’t count how many times I found myself needing to hand in a pile of papers without a stapler anywhere in sight. Well, you don’t need one with this handy trick. Grab a sharp knife or a pair of scissors and cut a small slot through the corner of your stack of papers (it needs to go through all of them). Then fold the corner of the stack over and through the slot. It is not the most secure solution, but it sure is better than just folding over the corner and hoping it holds.
Make grilled cheese on parchment paper
Before you cook up a grilled cheese sandwich after school (because let’s face it—school lunches are deeply unsatisfying), line your frying pan with parchment paper and then cook on the lowest setting. Why? No dishes to clean up, and you can get right back to your homework.
I found these hacks on diyncrafts.com, the descriptions of the hack is not mine. I did change some words around but I used their descriptions and added some of my own words.
