Organizing the End of School at Home.......


The end of the school fast approaches. Are you going to start your summer off neat and organized, ready for next fall, or are you going to be running around come September? Take my advice - spend a few minutes this summer organizing for next September. Summer is when you are not rushed.

More importantly, summer is when there are deals on school supplies.

Here's a picture of our "school drawer" during the school year. It holds such important items as papers my kids might need, math tests that they may have to study from, papers they just can't live without in January that become recycling fodder in June. Works terrific during the year, and if you don't have such a drawer, I suggest you make one. But for the summer? Not so good.

My goal as soon as school is over is to grab my kids and sort through this mess.

Stay tuned for how that works out........and hopefully an amazing after picture!

This is also the time of the year where the teachers start clearing their rooms so the mess at home becomes even bigger.
