5 Helpful Back-to-School Tips

Fabric Boards

Tip #1
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.

CollegeSchoolLockers

Tip #2
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.

Tip #3
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.

ShowroomOffice

Tip #4
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.

HomeOffice

Tip #5
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.

Lose That Excess Clutter – St. Louis Closets!

Reality check: how’s your New Year’s resolution going? It is five months into 2015 and if you’re like most people, you are busy, stressed and have put your resolutions on the back burner. If your resolution was to get organized–as it was for many people–it is time to do a serious self-evaluation.

Rather than being overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude of getting your de-cluttering your home, I personally think that the best way to attack home organization is to take it room-by-room. With summer almost here, let’s begin with the kids’ rooms, so grab your nearest child and get to work.

KidsClosetKids grow like weeds (especially babies and toddlers), so start by going through their clothes and toys making sure to get rid of the items that they do not wear or do not fit anymore. Inspect their clothing for tears and mend those pieces that need buttons or other alterations. Throw away or donate outgrown toys and games right away.

If you have a Saint Louis Closet Co. closet system in your child’s room, the next step would be to adjust the shelves and rods to maximize your space. The great thing about having a Saint Louis Closet Co. closet is that our systems are 100% adjustable, so your closets actually grow as your children grow.

After seeing the results and witnessing the effect it has on your daily life, you will want to maintain that organization, but wanting to maintain it and actually doing it are two completely different things.

Remember, we are all human, and we will at one time or another falter and a room or two will lose its organizational luster, but that’s okay: just make sure you identify accumulating clutter before it gets out of hand and you give up on the whole thing. The best way to succeed in keeping your spaces organized is to make it something that the entire family can participate in.

The earlier you get your children involved with keeping their own space and your home in tact, the more likely they will be to abide to organization as they get older.

Remember, getting organized is like losing weight: it’s a marathon, not a sprint, so make the commitment, set short-term, realistic goals and don’t beat yourself up if you slack everyone once in a while. We all deserve a little bit of indulgence every now and again; just make sure to keep yourself in check and don’t let it get out of hand. The rewards of staying organized with help simplify your life, and we could all use a little more of that in our lives.
