Monday we kick off our 7 Day Back to School organization journey. Seven days of the fastest organizing to get your children ready for the new school year.
Our slogan is “Get organized, Get optimized” and for good reason. These days children are busier than ever and if we do not optimize and teach them to optimize their time and ” things” than they could become disorganized and frazzled. This is just not necessary if we take the time get things done and give them simple tools to help them get through their day in a peaceful, organized fashion.Back To School – A seven-day organization journey!
Optimize means to make the best or most effective use of (a situation, opportunity, or resource).
Here is the outline for the next few days.
- Tackle Clutter – Bedroom
- Organize Bedroom Closet
- Organize Drawers
- Tackle clutter in Study Areas
- Organize Study Area
- Organize Books
- Organize Reading Corner
Each day we will tackle one of these items and finish it the best we can in the time we have. If you child is older than please make them part of this process with in reason. But remember the less stuff they have to distract them from getting ready for school in the morning, studying, and tidying the less of a hassle their days will be and that makes for more smiles and less stress.
I was at a conference once and the teacher said that children who have messy rooms at home tend to be disorganized in the classroom and therefore have trouble finishing work and keeping work tidy. So this year I am organizing a little more to optimize my child’s school year and I hope it will help him to be Captain Organized at school without even being aware that his home list of what made it happen.
We are going to rock this school year!
