Who is looking forward to the first day of school?  And who’s already jumped over the hurdle of the first day?  The beginning of the school year is always a crazy time.  We go from our laid-back schedule-nothing summer days to having a jam-packed schedule.  I don’t know about you, but the school year marks the beginning of tree killing season around here–we get stacks and stacks of papers that come home every week in the backpacks.  And let’s not forget all the stuff that gets dropped on the floor everyday: backpacks, jackets, lunch boxes, shoes, athletic gear, library books.  As much as I appreciate all the good that comes from school, let’s face it: school = chaos!


That chaos is the inspiration behind the projects and ideas I’m going to share with you today.  I’ve spotted some terrific, simple ways that you can make things a little more organized for your family this school year.  All of them are DIY projects, most of them require very little time or effort, and any one of these bright ideas will help control the chaos.  Here’s to a happy school year!
