Our new school year is approaching fast, way too fast! I need to get my life organized. You might have heard me say it before, organization is NOT my strong suit. I need all the help I can get. There is one place I turn to year after year: the Container Store. They make it look fun and easy. Here are some ideas for school papers, pens, markers, and schedules.
And they are having a great sale going right now.
How about you, where do you turn to for inspiration?
summer is the perfect time for art projects on those hot afternoons when you can’t go outside. I have 4 girls who produce a tremendous amount of artwork on any given day. I didn’t know where to put them anymore so I thought the bathroom would be a good place:
But how do organize all those markers, crayons, scissors, water colors, paper, etc.? Here are some ideas:
The top 4 are from the Container Store. The last two I found on Pinterest. Don’t you wish you had a whole closet for your crafts? We have a small Ikea children’s wardrobe for our school books and craft supplies. It has worked well in the past but it is starting to get a little crowded. How about you, have you found the perfect organizing solution for you crafts?
I typically organize my school stuff in the summer. I box up the kid’s school work, organize their closet and pull out books they need for the coming year. However, I’m not an organized person. It is really hard for me to keep my house uncluttered. That is probably why I like the Container Store so much. They have so many options in lots of colors. They make you think it could actually be fun to organize your house!
How about you? Are you like me or is cleaning your closets your favorite thing in the world?
