You don’t want your kids to show up to school with a messy backpack, do you? Organizing your child’s backpack is a quick start to a successful school year thanks to this tip from menclean.com. For starters, you should store your kids’ pencils and sharpeners in the front pocket of their backpack for easy accessibility. Keep their pens, markers and/or highlighters in a small plastic box. Have cords and chargers coiled and wrapped with a rubber band to avoid tangles. Keeping cords in a soft pouch makes them extra secure and damage free!

Instead of multiple notebooks— use a binder filled with folders for each subject, and place the binder in the largest section of your kids’ backpack. This cuts down on clutter and keeps everything in one convenient spot. Weight distribution will be a breeze and it frees up space for smaller items.

Lunch money should be placed in the inside of your child’s backpack in a small zippered pouch. Make sure your kids’ backpack has a mesh pocket to store water bottles! Keeping them on the outside of a backpack helps eliminate damage if your bottle springs a leak! If you’re packing your kids lunch, keep it in the front of the backpack to avoid crushing!
