Getting the kiddos and parents ready for the fall!
Yes Folks, it’s THAT time of year again, and the mad rush is on as we count down the days before the start of the new school year! Diligent Delivery Systems is here to support you through the tough stuff!
5 Back-2-School Tips & Tricks
- Wake Up!
Now that the summer is coming to a close, it’s time to get your family back into the early morning groove. Tip: Use the week before school starts to go to bed an hour early, as well as to set alarms for waking up into a stress-free morning routine.
- Set Up!
To ensure that your family is well-set and prepared for the new school year, make sure that everyone has had their routine medical/dental and eye exams, proper immunizations, and registration forms completed. Trick: Have a Medical Holiday for the family to knock out those tedious tasks, and then celebrate by taking everyone out to a fancy restaurant!
- Buy Up!
Take advantage of those famous Back to School Sales and Tax-free weekends that retailers offer (August 9 -11, 2013). Everyone loves to save money on school supplies, electronics, and school clothes. Trick: Establish a budget for needed items, and with the dollars you save, take and add it to a family savings account to build-on for extracurricular activities!
- Give Up!
We all know that it is more blessed to give than to receive. Tip: Keep those who are less fortunate in mind by taking the family out to purchase and/or participate in donating their time, talents, and treasures to those who may not have what they need to prepare for the new school year.
- Ship Up!
Last, but certainly not least, it's also time to ship-up and shape-up as you get back into your regular work routine! Tip: With the start of the new school year, and with all that you have going on, make your life stress-free by allowing Diligent Delivery Systems, Your Total DELIVERY Solution, handle all of your shipping needs.
