Last Minute Things to Do Before Back-to-School

August 25, 2017 2:00 am

For parents, back-to-school is looming on the horizon. But that doesn't mean you can't squeeze a bit more out of the season! Below are a handful things you can still do with your family before they head to school, offered by Booking.com.

Plan a last-minute family vacation: They are so important not only for reducing stress, but for bonding and making memories, and a trip doesn't have to be expensive. Use a travel app or website like Booking.com. They have more than one million unique places to stay for any budget, from five star hotels, to villas, to boats and even tree houses! No matter what you buy or reserve online always check out reviews, they can be so important.  

Bargain hunt: Back to school spending is expected to top $27 billion dollars! Every year more and more moms are shopping online because it's easier to price compare without the kids in tow. On trend clothing this year is denim on denim, embroidery and hoodies, but shoes are a must-have and finding a great way to get the latest most popular shoes at a better price is key. Rack Room Shoes has an ongoing promotion that offers a buy one pair get one 50-percent off! You can find everything from Adidas, to Nikes, to Pumas, and there's a great selection of trendy backpacks, and fun lunch bags.

Stay organized: Dealing with after school chaos can always be huge task. And then I found a great new app to help streamline everything. BAND is the leading group communication app, and it's great at streamlining school and after-school activity planning. We all know what it's like to get those weekly emails from a team or group, lost among hundreds of other emails, it's particularly frustrating when you're a coach or group organizer. The app keeps schedules, messaging with the teams and parents, and any last minute updates all in one place. You can even share photos privately with the group.

Summer to school transition: Bedtime and mealtime can be more flexible during the summer. Try to start getting into the school year routine before the first bell. It's easier to get kids to go to bed earlier, if you wake them up earlier. And while studies show social media is not directly connected to poor school performance, the closer a device is, the more distracting it is…even if it's turned off. So park the phone at bedtime, and in the locker during school hours.
