If you’re no super mum who has a brilliant memory, then you can be one with these cool school bag storage ideas so you’ll never have to forget anything again!

One of the things most mums suck at is remembering everything.

Why Go For School Bag Storage Ideas and Hacks?

While taking your children shopping for back-to-school supplies might be a lot of fun, it’s not the only thing you need to anticipate. As a parent, you must make lunches for your fussy eater, find out how to handle the infinite quantities of paperwork that comes your way throughout the school year, and come up with creative solutions to expedite your daily routine. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by all of the minor things, the easiest approach to deal with them is to be proactive by using clever organizing hacks.

So, to make organising your kids’ school stuff one less worry, designating an area at home where all your kids’ school needs go to one place (which is usually by the door), is a great way to ensure all the things needed at school are ready and all the kids need to do is pick it up and go.

But your school bag storage areas don’t have to be messy, you can get some ideas here to make it as organised and as pretty as it should be. Here are some of the coolest school bag storage ideas we found on the internet.

1. You can make use of chalkboards so you can write greetings for your kids too!

Establish after school expectations. I think most kids need a little "down time" afterschool but there are a few things that I expect when the kids first come home from school: backpacks emptied {including lunches and putting their planner/notices on the counter for me to read}, shoes and coat put away, and backpacks hung up in their designated spot. We do not have any screen time {video games or television} until after homework is completed.
