Family Organization Tips

Happy New Year, friends!   Today, I am sharing some of my favorite family organization tips!  3 kids, my work, their schoolwork? and their many  activities keep this mama busy.  Maybe you can relate? I don’t know about you, but I love to see how other moms handle their day to day business! 🙂

Craft Cart

So, I just picked up this fun utility cart to manage our craft supplies!   Extra paper, markers, crayons, play dough, all of it goes in this cute contraption in the playroom upstairs!

My kids love art time, so having all of our supplies together has been wonderful!

Command Center

Do you have a family command center?  When we built our house, I had visions of a little nook area for backpacks, schedules, and such.

This hallway leads to the garage. So, it’s the perfect spot!

Voila: where the backpacks hang. 🙂 img_6933

The drawer below the bench holds gloves, winter hats, and such. 🙂

And, our family calendar/chalkboard!   Our kids ask approximately 90 million questions each day and most of them can be answered here.   img_6931

Our schedule, what’s for dinner, what day is it: just check the calendar and chalkboard. 🙂

Flair Pens

So, technically, new pens will not make you more organized, but look at how fun these pens are!   These are BEST for your day to day use.  ðŸ™‚

Aren’t we all more likely to write thank you notes and keep our to-do lists when using a neon pink pen?  ðŸ˜‰

  1. My favorite tip is write it down!!! As much as I think I’ll remember something without writing it down-I won’t! Having an ongoing to do list keeps me organized! Happy 2017!!

  2. If I don’t write it down it’ll never get done!! I also started making a daily to-do list at the end of each day for the next. My husband has been SHOCKED how much more I get done in a day! (But I’m also pregnant and have a 10month old so pregnancy brain is mixed in their 😉)

  3. Love, love cute, colored markers/pens. They make everything written down more fun. I have always felt that an organized life is a productive life. Blessings for the year ahead!
