Using Trello for Back to School Planning

A Purpose Driven Mom Podcast

Episode 357

Do you need some extra support in your back-to-school planning? In this episode, Cara tells you all about how Trello helps her stay on track when preparing for the new school year.

Trello can be used for a variety of things, such as organizing school information, attaching important documents and even keeping a shopping list. But, what makes Trello so fantastic is that you can use it on either your laptop or phone.

Cara suggests moms create a workspace for each child and add all school related forms, important dates and contact information. If there are other people who are involved in the planning, tag them on Trello so they are notified. That way, everyone is on the same page.

Trello is truly a jack of all trades. It even makes back-to-school shopping easier. The tool allows you to keep detailed school supply lists, where you can price match items from different stores to get the best deal. Who doesn’t love saving money during the new school season?

And the best part of Trello is that it is completely free!
