Get Back to school ready: Start a Back to School List!

So, as an avid bullet journaler (I did a post about it HERE), I LOVE making lists!  I make daily lists, monthly lists, and other lists!  They really help me to focus on the task at hand!  So, with a month and a few days to go, I start making my Back To School list.  As you can see, it is still in its beginning phase.  I actually start it right after school gets out when school is still on my mind.

Start putting things into my Back to School Wishlist!

All summer I have been on Social Media looking at all of the great classroom items, Teachers Pay Teachers Stuff, teacher books, children's books, Target dollar spot finds, etc....When I see something I like, I screenshot it with my phone and I put it in a TO BUY FOR SCHOOL folder in my gallery.  Then, when I have time I go shopping!  I start putting things in my wishlist both on TPT and Amazon.  That way, I can go back at my leisure and decided what I really need want and what I am going to save for later to get back to school ready!  Want to check out my wishlist?  You can find it HERE!

I make purchases I am SURE about.

So, when it comes to spending my own money on my classroom I want to be SURE that I want it or need it.  Of course, once I make that decision, then I have to think about shipping time.  With Amazon Prime, this isn’t really an issue, but with other places, stuff can take a while to get to me.  So, if it is something that I know FOR SURE that I want, I start making purchases!  This year I knew without a doubt that I want these things and the first 2 I want for Open House which is a few days before school starts.  I am not an affiliate of Oriental Training Company, I just love their stuff!

The Most Important way to Get Back to School Ready: Me Time!

With only a few weeks left until we go back to school I also use the time to do all that stuff that is difficult throughout the year.  I do all of my annual doctors appointments (fun stuff), go to the dentist, and get my hair done!  I also try to get together with friends for lunch (and maybe have a glass of wine).  I certainly can’t do that much during the school year.  I try to read one or two more “fun” books.  I try to finish whatever Professional books that I am reading.
