There is something about Fall that makes me want to organize. Perhaps it is the fresh school supplies and new clothes. Perhaps it is a renewed interest in home as the days get a little cooler. Perhaps it is just the busyness of activities resuming that screams for schedules. Whatever the reason, organization is on my mind.
This week is Organizing 101... some tips and ideas that have helped in our lives. Please share your ideas and suggestions as well. After all, we can all use some help.
In honor of school starting, let's start with an idea for organizing artwork. My daughter's room has a weird partial wall that we have turned into a rotating gallery. It's a simple concept: three clear clipboards with coordinating scrapbook paper attached. The clipboards hang on the wall just waiting for their next creation. They are cute on their own, but let's be honest, that won't last long. So when new artwork comes home, you can clip it up for as long as you like, and then rotate when the next piece comes in. Simple and fun.
