As this school year comes to a close, my organizing mojo has kicked in again. Throughout the year, my daughter and I have accumulated a lot of school supplies and art materials which I know she can still use all throughout the summer and even onto the next school year.


So before you bring out your kid’s swim suits and goggles,

you need to first put away her used and unopened art and school materials in a bin. 


Inside the bin, keep the materials organized by using separate bags. Don’t forget to label them!


Now that’s done, have a happy summer!

School is almost over, now how do you organize all the items your kids have accumulated throughout the school year?

Don’t throw, just box!

The reason why I suggest you keep them in a box is for easy review if your child has to refer back to an old quiz or text book. 


I keep all of my daughter’s former school books in this box filled with stickers of her choice. 




You can also use plastic boxes just like these! 



Now some people would ask, so when should I get rid of my old textbooks?  This is really something only the owner can answer.  If he or she feels that all the information is readily available online or if the owner badly needs space which boxes upon boxes of old school books are taking up, then it’s time to let it go.


But again, don’t throw! You can donate old textbooks and recycle old notebooks and quizzes.
