Gobble, gobble! Have a happy (and food-filled) Thanksgiving from the Affordable Organization family to yours.
A lovely walk-in closet needed some TLC from Affordable Organization. Our client knew she had too many items from all seasons jammed into the closet thus making it frustrating to find and put away her clothing quickly. Affordable Organization was up to the challenge of improving the function and look of her closet and drawers. This entire project only took 7 hours including shopping for supplies. https://affordableorganization.com/portfolio-item/master-closet-cleanout-organization/ ... See more

Tip of the week: Prep for Tomorrow Tonight Set aside 30 minutes on the time timer to prep for the next day. Make lunches (or supervise your children making them). Lay out clothes for the next morning. Review the upcoming calendar. A little prep time goes a long way toward ensuring you and your kids are ready to tackle morning without moaning. By NAPO ...

Tip of the Week: Run to the in-zone. An inbox isn’t enough space for most families. Create an “in-zone” where you can collect and sort invoices, medical receipts, the scouting popcorn/cookie sales sheet, club sign-up forms and more. Establish a drop zone so that your children know to always hang their backpack and jacket in the same place. Create a bin for each sport or activity for easy access. Create a filing system for every paper that comes home with an inbox where kids can place their take-home folders each day. A hanging magazine rack helps you sort by each child. Review each take home folder and sort by Toss, Save or Action. Toss papers right away. Save each child’s special drawings, report cards award certificates and anything else you might want to keep, either with a digital filing system or a hanging file for each child. Action papers should be dealt with right away: Sign that form! Send in money for the teacher gift. Action papers can be returned to your child’s take-home folder for the next morning. By NAPO ...

Tip of the week: Create a homework space. --- Studies show that routine is very important to help kids feel safe and to create self-discipline. A designated spot in the house for homework should be part of that routine. Whether it’s the kitchen table or a desk in the study, strive to create a routine where homework is completed in the same place at the same time each day. Create a desktop caddy or special drawer with the items you use regularly for homework like highlighters, scissors, pencils and index cards. Have a younger child feeling left out? Keep crayons on hand, too, and “assign” some coloring or art projects. A time timer can also help keep homework and other after-school activities on track. The dry erase board is a great way to place reminders such as “20 minutes-Piano,” “Read for 15 minutes,” etc. so that kids know how much time is remaining for each activity. By NAPO ... See more

Tip of the week: Establish a central household calendar--- The rhythms of the school year also influence the kickoff of many other activities--for the kids and for you. Designate a place in your home to serve as calendar central. You need a place where you (and your entire family) can glance at everyone’s commitments at once. Consider color coding by each family member so that you can write shorter entries and easily track who’s doing what. Or, go electronic if everyone in your home has access to a smart phone. You might also consider a weekly dry-erase calendar with a column for each day and a dry-erase marker color for each person. Using your monthly calendar, write in each entry along with reminders, “Soccer practice--bring snack,” or “Dance class--black leotard.” You can also note ongoing homework such as “20 minutes of reading” or “Spelling Review.” By NAPO ...

TIP OF THE WEEK! Simple Steps for Fall Garage Organization 1. Purchase tall sturdy shelving. Plastic 72" x 36" shelving works in most garages. 2. Take everything out of the garage and sort "like with like" items. 3. Create a donate, trash, recycle, and hazardous chemical piles. 4. Focus on long term storage of items. Items like binned keepsakes, clothing or documents can be stored high. 5. Seasonal items should be placed into bins and labeled. 6. Lawn or snow equipment should be placed near the door depending upon the season. 7. Bikes and toys should be placed near the doorway on racks in bins creating a "home" for each. 8. Store bikes off-season on ceiling or wall hooks. 9. Ceiling racks work well for coolers and lawn furniture cushions. The idea is to put the items used most frequently towards the front of any storage spaces. Items used less frequently will be more hidden. By focusing on making it easy to put things away, you make it more likely that you will be successful at maintaining the garage. Photo by Aaron Burden on Unsplash ... See more
