In the New Year you can never have too many tips on how to get your life in order. If you aren’t going to do it now, chances are it won’t happen the rest of the year either. Sometimes organization doesn’t happen because it can feel overwhelming. A great way to combat this is by using the same solution to organize everything around your home. Family organization stations may just be that solution for you. Think about all of the places that are unorganized and cluttered. Could you put together a station that has everything you need to keep all of the items in their place and easy to use and find. Let’s start simple. Cell phones, chargers and keys end up lost around the house. If you put together a station by the door that can collect everything that is emptied from pockets and includes charging stations for you phone, all those lost items will stay in one place. You can grab them as you run out the door and always know where they are. In your kitchen, recyclables may be cluttering up your counter. Buy inexpensive containers and label each one for the different types of recyclable materials. Take back your counter space. Even things you can’t see need organizing in the new year. The most obvious being schedules. Put together a calendar command center with containers that can collect paperwork and important documents. Each person in the family can have their own container and make the family aware of their upcoming obligations on the calendar. Keep reading below for ideas on how to organize everything from wrapping paper to school gear to your car. You can make 2016 the year you finally get organized. Just make sure you actually use the stations after putting them in place.
Back to school means craziness in my house – this is why I like to “try” to get all of my ducks in a row now to prepare (the key word here being TRY). You know what I am talking about…. the backpacks laying on the mudroom floor, the shoes thrown off right in front of the door, all of the school paper piles…. So, I decided to look around for some great family organization ideas and I came across all of these family organization stations!
