Organizer Expert Holly Bohn Says Getting Organized Doesn’t Just Apply to Kids!
Back to school is a two-pronged dilemma for parents and caregivers. First, you need to get them revved up, excited and ready to return to class and then organized enough to be successful. When you go to the effort to do this for kids, why not do it for yourself. It won’t hurt to have everything for your family organized. If you work, it can only improve your performance. If you are a SAHM, you can use this in volunteer activities and look like a star. It shows great managing your life skills and that translates into dollars no matter how you slice it.
Organizational expert, Holly Bohn, has teamed up with Office Depot to bring you easy, fun, creative new ways to get kids engaged for success. From the latest back to school must haves to keep them organized and on track to fostering excitement in the coming year with creative, stylish new looks to dressing up everything from notebooks to lunch totes… even turn that boring old locker into their very own “locker lounge.”
My interview with organization expert Holly Bohn of SEEJANEWORK.com
Holly Bohn demonstrates great tips and tricks for being organized– whether it’s for a kid or adults!
• Create a “locker lounge”
Help students get excited about school by putting their style stamp on their personal space in creative new ways with unique locker-sized accessories like chandeliers, carpets, and mini magnetic dry erase boards, pencil cups and mirrors.
• Match patterns with personality –
From tie-dye, glitter and chevron folders to die-cut and personalized notebooks with stickers and monograms, the latest styles for organization can not only help get students excited and engaged in back to school shopping, but encourage them to stay organized all year long.
• Lunch in style
Bag the brown bag this year, instead, bring a pop of color to the lunchroom with fashionable lunch totes to not only keep lunch fresh, but fun!
• Create a Homework Home Base
A great way to keep kids focused and organized for school success is carving out a well organized place in the home that’s dedicated just to homework. This is where your student can store school reports, keep a calendar of assignments and activities and focus on academic success.
• Protect Important Papers – Ensure paperwork makes it to and from school by using plastic envelopes to transport and keep then dry and clean.
