Get a head start on the new term by stocking up on their basics now

If you’re anything like me, the morning the kids start back to school is always a panicked dash round the house to find their uniform, gym kits and book bags. Add into the mix the inevitable post-festivities foggy brain and it’s like a true comedy skit… without the laughs. So, my New Year’s resolution is to get organised now. I intend to have a quick look to see what’s what and restock any items I’m low on or that need a refresh. Think socks, tights, pants, pinafores and shirts. That way, on their first day, I can be super-organised and send them out of the door feeling fresh, smart… and calm.

Help them start the new term feeling
smart and confident with some new basics
