Digital Backup for School Papers

Mom Hack

To avoid the panic of losing important school documents, take a photo of them as soon as they come home, particularly those elusive papers from the "Thursday Folder."

Save these images in a designated photo album labeled "school papers."

This way, you'll always have the information handy and avoid frantic searches through drawers.

Additionally, set a calendar reminder for important dates mentioned in the documents, and share the photo album with your partner or a trusted family member, so everyone stays in the loop!

Featured Response😄 

“In our rotating list of meals, there are some that only I cook, others that only my husband cooks, and a slim few that we both know how to cook. I am the oven, casserole, and Instant Pot queen. He is the grill, taco, meat, and fancy recipe king. When I menu plan I look at the schedule to see who would be home first to cook and try to balance so one of us isn’t cooking all week long.”

That sounds like such a great system! Balancing the cooking duties like that must make things so much easier and more fun for both of you. - Danielle 😊
