Back to School!!.....
Can you believe it is that time of year again?  Summer is winding down and you have to prepare for the kids to go back to school.  Luna's Concierge can help minimize the chaos by providing you with suggestions on how to prepare for the first day of school and lists to simplify the shopping that is necessary for school supplies, etc. PTO today  is the #1 resource for K-8 school parent groups.  They will provide guidelines to help you prepare for the school year to begin.  (READ MORE - Back-to-school Checklist).  Take a moment to peruse their site, it is a great source of information.  
 
 
School Supplies/Dorm Room ?        
Where do I begin?  
Luna's suggests using a checklist to help in preparing for the first day.  Staples has lists for all grade levels.  Be sure to see what supplies you have from last year.   
Pre-K thru Kindergarten
To the young adult who is heading off to college, the task may seem a little more overwhelming.  Take a deep breath and let's think about this.  The key is to be organized.  If you use the dorm shopping list we are confident that you will have all that you need to start  the next chapter in your life.  Take a lap around the house to see if there are items that are no longer used that you can take with you.  Make sure you are accompanied by an adult so as not to take the coffee maker that your family uses every morning.  The important things that you need for the first day of school are your school supplies and any toiletries.  Remember you don't want to sweat the small stuff.

Did You Know?
Do you realize that we are approaching the two year anniversary of Huricane Katrina?  New Absolut KatrinaOrleans is still working to recover from this catastrophic act of mother nature.  How can we in our everyday lives help in some way?  Absolut Spirits is launching Absolut New Orleans.  Limited to 35,000 cases, 100 percent of the proceeds will go to five Gulf Coast charities. Absolut hopes to raise $2 million. While I am not trying to promote alcohol consumption, this product is an indirect way to direct our buying habits towards a brand that is going to benefit a good cause.  If you are interested in other products that donate to a worthy cause visit www.thesavvygiver.com. 
 
 
Remember, Luna's Concierge is here to "Simplify your Life"!  Enjoy the remainder of your summer and feel confident that everything is under control.  Call now for a free consultation. 
 
All the best,
