Organization at Home

=> Sort through all their clothes and take inventory of what they have, what can be given away and what they might need. Set up a daily or weekly "clothes wearing" and laundry day system.

=> Sort through all their toys and take inventory of what they have, what can be given away and what they might need. Set up a toy storage area and a toy rotation system if needed.

=> Sort through all their desk/school items and take inventory of what they have and make a list of what'll they will need for the upcoming school year.

=> School Papers: Decide what school papers and/or art work will be kept and where. These types of papers are considered mementos. Set up a box or file for each child. I recommend placing an under bed storage unit for these papers to be placed into...easy and convenient. Also designate a place for your children to place paper work that the teacher has sent home for you to read or review.

=> It’s helpful to assign a bin, basket or shelf exclusively for school correspondence and lesson information that is near the hub of activity before school.  In our house, it’s a 1’ wide x 1’ deep x 9” high shelf near the kitchen.  Items in this cubby have changed from elementary school through high school.  The basic items that always remain in this area are the school lunch menus, lunch slips for ordering weekly lunches and the school calendar.  During the time of year when school pictures arrive, but before find their final home, the pictures stay in this bin.  It makes them easy to find when family is visiting and we want to share the photos.  Items such as newspaper articles, awards or certificates go into this area for staging.  They stay there until I put them into their scrapbooks.  If a concert, play or field trip is coming up, the notices go into this bin.  They stay there until the event is over and we can recycle the paper.
