Back to School with Office Max & Peter Walsh

I was contacted recently on behalf of Office Max and Peter Walsh to see if I would be interested in attending a Back to School Organizational Blogcast. Being the unorganized mess myself and having a 14 yr old who is an organizational nightmare and getting ready for high school which is starting this week the opportunity came at a perfect time.

Here are some of the great tips from Peter Walsh :

1) Find the Vision you have for a Space
2) Make Organization a Family Value

3) Use the Right Tools for Great Organization

1) Show that you Value Organization
2) Establish Clear Limits and Routines
3) Always ‘Finish the Cycle’ (Complete a Task)

1) Establish Clear Routines
2) Involve Kids with Classroom Organization
3) Use Words, Pictures and Color to help Organi

The entire blogcast was GREAT. Full of tips for any mom who is getting ready for back-to-school. No matter if you kid(s) are going back to school or you are homeschooling you could learn something from this blogcast. If you didn't get to see the blogcast, you can watch it here:

Other tips I learned....

  • Got a packrat? Set limits... If you have a bin that is full, get rid of one thing before you are allowed to add more.
  • Being organized at home helps your child in the classroom too!
  • Make organization a family Value!
  • Take time to prepare the night before to make mornings easier & less stressful.
  • Backpack Tip - Teach your kids how to effectively use it! Use the pockets, bottle holders, etc--use it to the fullest.
  • Show that you value organization & your child will do the same. Establish clear boundaries & routines.
