"Cold Organized"

Getting lunches prepared is one of the top problems parents face in that crazy morning rush, but one bright back-to-school idea parents can feast on is professional organizer Janine Adams' suggestion of getting "cold organized."

"Take clear, shoebox-sized containers and create spaces in the refrigerator for kids' lunchbox supplies," Janine says. "Do the same in the pantry. That way, when it's time to pack kids' lunches, everything will be in one place. And by putting things like cereal or chips in clear containers, you'll know when you're running low, rather than discovering in the morning when you're rushed."
