Back To School Organization


Trying to keep three kids organized can be a nightmare. I tried every possible system (including the file folder one, which looked cute, but the papers in the files were NEVER looked at! Out of sight out of mind?!)

This time, I decided to make use of the clipboards we already had (and thanks to Pinterest) ended up with a much better way to keep track of papers.


I found the perfect spot in our hallway, added these three hooks I found in the basement (free!) and went to work...


I used masking tape to cover the metal clip and heavy duty wire to hold the clip back so I could spray paint them.


Now they hang with all those important papers, notices etc. The hooks hold lunch boxes and lightweight jackets. Maybe this school year, I will be better organized!
