De-clutter by Buying the Most Important School Supplies

It's tempting to fill your kid's backpack with every possible school supply so he is prepared no matter what. But too many school supplies create clutter. Keep just a few vitals in your kid's backpack: binders, folders, a planner, a couple of pencils/pens, and books. Other goodies are fine, but they can stay in the locker until they're needed.
