Whether your kids are learning virtually or just sitting at their desk cranking out some homework, here are some tips and tricks for keeping them organized this school year.
CREATE A COLOR CODING SYSTEM
You can assign each child, subject, etc. a color to really stay organized. Ask your kids if they already have a color in mind. There is no doubt that they debate with their friends whether science is a blue or green subject. Pick out your colors, and stick to them! Post-it notes will be your new best friend.
BUY A HANDY LABEL MAKER
Assign subjects, label drawers, and so much more. Label makers have been around for quite some time and continue to prove their value. Have your kids help type up the labels and turn organizing into an activity! Here are some options depending on your budget: Best Value. Best Under $30. Best Overall.
DON’T UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF A NICE SET OF CONTAINERS
When it comes to organization, there is no right answer. There is nothing wrong with heading to your nearest Home Goods and shopping away. But, The Container Store is full of different choice and sizes. Ikea is an awesome well-priced option, as well. While we can’t guarantee you will easily complete an order of just containers without getting sucked into the wonder of Ikea, it is worth a browse.
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ANY WALL SPACE
CREATE A COMMAND CENTER
