Get (and Keep!) Those Backpacks Organized!

The kids have been back in school for awhile, and that "new school smell" is gone. New grade, new teacher, new classroom- big yawn. Most of us have settled in and gotten used to our school schedules.

Before you get too relaxed, I have a question: How are your children's backpacks looking these days? If they're like most students, they are already a mess: loose and crumpled papers, half-eaten sandwiches, random pencils, lost assignments.

A backpack is a student's "traveling office," and it needs to stay neat and organized. Here's an article to help your kids return those backpacks to the way they were the first day of school.
