Do you have a back to school organizing game plan ready to go? 

The new school year is right around the corner and a successful and organized transition into the Fall can set the tone for the rest of the year (and help you avoid the insane rush at the school supply store the night before the first day). Back to school organizing is a great opportunity to get the entire family involved so you can make life simpler and empower your kids to create organizing systems that will help them to be organized and productive now and also teach them to create organizing systems in the future. 

Does back to school in your house mean piles of books and papers and supplies everywhere? Don’t worry, with a back to school organizing game plan, you and your kids can start of the year on the right foot and tame the school supply clutter.

This is a hectic time of year for the whole family, so just take it one step at a time. I was just featured in The Washington Post for my organizing expertise on this topic.
