How to Organize your kids Activity Items "Activity Bags"

One of the most stressful things as a parent can be to keep track of all the different things that goes with each activity. The soccer cleats, the ballet slippers, it can, you know, especially when you're trying to get out of the house in the morning. So what I do, is I take a lot of Ziploc bags and I label them for each day, so for example Thursday, ballet, I have the hair net, the leotard, the hairspray, all in one bag. If you don't want to use plastic bags, you can use recyclable cloth bags. You can make these yourself or you can buy them at Bag-All.com. And come Thursday morning when I'm stressed out to get out of the house, and making breakfast and lunches, I don't have to worry about getting all the stuff for ballet ready. I just take the little bag, put it in the backpack, and I'm all set to go, and I'm a lot better mother, I have a lot more patience, 'cause I'm not rushing around the house trying to find the ballet slippers. And we get off to a better start and a calmer day.
