How to Get Your Child Ready for School

Summer is coming to an end, which means back-to-school season is just around the corner, and for many of you getting your child ready for the new school year. Getting ready for going back to school is always hectic as you try to squeeze in every ounce of summer left and get back into a routine for September. We at XYZ Storage want to help you get organized for the school year by making it as easy as possible with our helpful tips so you can make more time to enjoy the rest of summer.

Start as Early as Possible

If you know you have a busy last couple of weeks of summer, it is good to start early. Whether that means putting your child to bed earlier than usual, buying all of their school supplies and materials, or getting a head start stocking up the pantry with after-school snacks. Doing this will help you avoid rushing closer to the first day of school and avoid long lineups at the stores.

Get Your Child Involved

Getting your child involved in the day-to-day chores and ways to organize themselves will help them navigate through learning the process. It can help make daily activities easier by teaching your child how to clean up after themselves, keep their room tidy, and organize their school work.


Decluttering all of your child’s belongings now will save you a whole lot of space and time later. A fresh start for the school year can be important for many households, so why not start with decluttering? Decluttering is deciding whether to keep, throw away, donate, sell or store a specific item or belonging that you own. Take the time you need to declutter spaces in your home to release physical and mental clutter.

Self-Storage Can Help

After Labour Day weekend, it might be a good time to start thinking about putting away all of your pool floats, gardening equipment, kids’ toys, sports equipment, and summer clothes. By doing this can help you make room for your child’s fall clothes and everything they need to get back into the groove for the school year. Self-storage can be the ideal solution for those who lack the space in their home for seasonal belongings, including ones that are used and worn in the summer. XYZ Storage offers short and long-term storage solutions for those in neighbouring areas in Toronto, with several locations in Downtown Toronto, Scarborough, Etobicoke, Toronto West, and Toronto Midtown. We offer secure, affordable, and customizable storage units to fit the various needs of Torontonians to help ease their moving and storage needs. 

Happy Back to School Season from all of us at XYZ Storage!
