You can see it in their faces. They’re tired. Stressed. On edge. It happens every year. The kids go back to Foxbank Elementary School and parents around Moncks Corner are thrown back into the chaos of another year of school work, after-school activities and conflicting schedules.
The biggest issue most parents face is keeping organized with their limited time and their extensive list of to-do’s. Luckily, in the age of technology that we are in right now, staying on top of what you need to do throughout the year has gotten a whole lot easier. Check out a few of Southern Living’s top choices for helpful back-to-school apps:
This free app is used to help you manage all of the moving pieces in your life. From your work schedule to your kid’s school work and after-school activities, this keeps everything in one place. It also allows you to assign chores, share shopping lists, find new recipes and plan meals.
Retail Me Not
This is an app that comes in handy for when you need to find deals for supplies or clothes throughout the school year. It offers a comprehensive round up of coupon codes and sales so you can shop the best deals around. You can also use the app to scan coupons at the register, save deals for your favorite stores and search for deals based on your location. The best part? It’s free!
If your kid’s teacher doesn’t use this app, it is definitely one to suggest. Class Dojo is a free app that helps teachers, parents and students share classroom moments through messages, photo and video sharing and announcements. It’s a great way to keep everyone on the same page throughout the school year and helps discourage the typical ‘he said, she said’ arguments that can occur.
