Check out some of my “Favorite Back to School Home Organizing Ideas” I am loving and hoping to implement this year!

I Heart Organizing is my favorite organizing blog here a few ideas that I love for back to school organizing from them.

School Papers Storage – I like this idea but I am thinking of using it to file their papers for the school year instead. I like to keep my kids homework papers at least the semester to keep as a reference.

School Supplies – I always buy extra so I am not stuck each time they run out; great ways to organize them on this post. Got to love it when the schools tells you in two days we need your child to bring xyz to school.

Toy Storage – This one has been my favorite since I saw it few years back just makes it easy for toys to be put away. We now use this idea more for video game equipment in my home.

Check this one for the those little lego boys like mine use to be. I would have loved to have displayed them like that and how easy for picking up and putting away… (red goes in the red bin.)

Container Store

Charging Station now needed with all of us having electronics, something simple that looks uncluttered.


Check out a series I did a couple of years ago. It is my annual back to school plan
