It’s time to head back to school! This time of year can be stressful and exciting all at once. At El Cajon Mitsubishi, we’re here to help with a list of don’t-miss back to school prep.

Plan Outfits

It can be hard to get little kids dressed in the morning. Get them involved! On Sunday, plan their outfits with them for the entire week so that there’s no rushing in the morning.

Set a Bedtime

For youngsters, make sure you set a strict bedtime that they must follow. It’s especially important for young kids to get 10 to 12 hours of sleep at night, so make sure they go to bed early enough for when they need to wake up.

Create a “Lunch Box List”                                                                                                         

Get creative and organized by creating a “lunch box list.” Craft a list of different categories that you’d include in lunch, like “Main Course,” “Veggies,” “Sweets,” and “Drinks.” Use these options on the list to go grocery shopping and to pack easy, fun lunches.

Store Extra Supplies

Have a place in your home where you store extra pens, paper, highlighters, or anything your kids will need for their homework. That way, when they run out of something or lose something, you have a reliable backup.
