Get a routine the first few weeks of school, and make a place for your kids and their stuff. A place for backpacks, shoes, coats and sports equipment. Once this routine and system is established, stick to it…it will save you and your kids hours looking for things.
Establish a storage area in your home for extra school supplies. Stock up at the beginning of the year so your kids can always replenish their backpacks and lockers without last minute trips to the store.
Make a family bulletin board for calendars, sports schedules and invitations. Keep everything in this one place so everyone knows what everyone else in the family is doing.
Purge your kids closets and drawers of all clothing they don’t wear or doesn’t fit. Try on everything and make a list of necessities. Head to the stores armed with a list needs and sizes…this will prevent unnecessary purchases.
Make sure you have a special homework area set up so your kids ‘have their place.’ This desk area or kitchen table should have good lighting, comfortable seating, access to a computer and wifi, if needed, and be quiet and away from distractions.

Summer’s coming to an end and school is starting soon. All kids need a place to work at home, a place to put their school supplies, a place to hang their coats, a place to put their shoes so they don’t track playground dirt or soccer mud into your house, and the perfect place for that is a St. Louis Closet Co. desk, cubby or locker.
My kids go back to school in two short weeks and as soon as they come home from their first day of school with lots of binders, textbooks, and other supplies I know they will be able to stay organized with their desks. They have a place for everything. The drawers hold their pencils, pens, markers, erasers, paper, and notebooks with ample room for sketchbooks, books, and fun little gadgets. The shelves on top provide a perfect place to easily arrange their textbooks and binders. And hanging over the desk is a fabric board to hang photos, awards, and their school schedule on. Everything they need is in one place, easily accessible, and organized.
In addition to their desk, as soon as they walk in after soccer practice or piano lessons they take off their shoes, put them on their shoe shelves, hang their jacket and soccer bag up in their Cubby, and there is no mud or cleat marks throughout the rest of the house. Their St. Louis Closet Company lockers and shoe shelves are perfect.

Summer is the perfect time to get organized!! All those hot, lazy days when you head inside to escape the St. Louis humidity….start getting organized. You don’t have to take on a big project, start small. One organized drawer will set you on the path of organizational success!!
Take the catch all drawer in the kitchen or Home Office where everything gets dumped. Take everything out and clean the inside of the drawer with a clean damp cloth. Then you may want to add a drawer liner out of felt, wallpaper or decorative paper to brighten up the bottom of the drawer. Then you’re ready to begin.
Sort items into several ‘like’ piles, make sure to throw away all trash, broken items or things you no longer use. Then start deciding if you want drawer dividers, individual containers, or even small bowls and tupperware work great for organization. Invest in a labeler, readily available at any office supply store, and label the bottom of the drawer or container with what goes in that space…this will help everyone in the family get the right things in the right places.
Stand back, admire, pat yourself on the back and enjoy how good it feels to have that one drawer organized. Now you’re ready to tackle your closet.
