These back to school organization ideas made the beauty-organizing-perfectionist in me so happy! I am a pretty organized person, yet even I have not all under control and everything in a state that I just love. Life happens, I’m human. And that’s ok. I give my best to teach and live out to my child what it means to be organized and how to easily achieve it, so we all can have more time enjoying our life and do things that really matter in life to us, like friendships, family-time, personal growth, playing…
Even though, we are in France already back to school since almost 2 weeks, it is still the time to think about jackets, backpacks (or cartables as we say in French), schedules, extracurriculars, and books. But with all those things that our kids love, need and enjoy, how do you keep it all organized? Where do you store it?
What most of my clients shocks, is the amount of paper that come home from school. There.is.so.much.paper. The following list with organizing goodies and idea, started when looking for all kinds of options how to get those papers organized.
In the following I’ll share with you some organizing solution we found to inspire you, to motivate you and to give you a glimpse of that zen-moment and deep happiness I and my clients feel when we organized, simplified and beautified their corners and spaces.
