Back to School with Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and The Container Store



Ah, the fresh smell of school books, spanking new backpacks, big yellow buses full of jittery students, the shuffle to new classrooms, slamming lockers, hugs and high fives, and a proud sense of school spirit permeates the air. Yes, it's hard to believe summer vacation is over and the the back-to-school season is upon us. 
 
Preparing our children for a new school year can be daunting, especially when we don't have a clear plan of what to do, or where to start. 


Research has shown that children who are organized and focused are happiest and grow up to be healthier adults. Therefore, in order to have a successful student it is critical that they learn how to get organized. 

The Container Store, the nation's leading retailer of storage and organization products, offer multifunctional, well-designed, well-priced items designed to simplify one's life, save space and, ultimately, save time. 


For this Back-to-School season there are several things you can do to help your kid become happier, and more focused. 

1- Backpack
A backpack should never hang more than four inches below your waistline and should not weigh more than 10 to 15 percent of your child's body weight. Children's Healthcare of Atlanta recommends to always adjust the shoulder straps so it can rest in the middle of your back. If they come with a waist strap always secure it in order to help you distribute the load evenly. Failure to do so can lead to pain, numbness, tingling and ultimate back pain.

2- Compartmentalize!

You can never have too many compartments. A backpack with multiple compartments helps position the contents most efficiently to distribute the load. The Barcelona Paper Pouch helps you separates groups of documents to organize the interior of your briefcase, tote or backpack. Use it as a great solution for documents and receipts as well as coloring books and crayons for kids.

3- Lunchtime Essentials

Bringing your own lunch to school is the new cool. A healthy packed lunch not only helps you be "Strong 4 Life" but lets you avoid the lunch line (and any temptations). Bringing your own lunch also lets you control exactly what goes into the food you eat.  The Insulated Lunch Sack at The Container Store is a great size for elementary-aged kids while the Insulated Lunch Carrier is a little roomier for older kids and their bigger appetites.

 4- Locker Organization

In the hustle and bustle of those few minutes between class, books end up on top of lunch sacks, and students are left with flattened sandwiches and broken chips. Maximize vertical space by adding a shelving unit made specifically for lockers, which provides multiple levels of storage for better organization. Students will be able to locate items with ease and make it to class on time. Also, a fold up organizer with several compartments can be easily hung on a hook in a locker and is an ideal way to keep those supplies organized and easily accessible.
