First step to being organized

With both kids in school now, I realized I needed a dedicated space for them to put their backpacks when we get home in the afternoon. I went to a home improvement store and bought silver hooks (found on the bathroom accessory aisle). I like these because there are 2 hooks, so when it gets cold outside, they can hang their coat and back pack in the same place.

Above the backpacks is the family calendar. It lists all the major activities for the month. The kids love to move the dot to the correct date each day. I don't even have to remind them ;-)

On the left, you will see our workout calendar. We were doing an Insane workout, but then we went on vacation...

I made a card tonight, but I am waiting to post it. I think I may send it to a friend that visits my blog.

What a great system you have going there! I need to show this to my DIL. She remarried this summer to a man with custody of this 3 kids so she went from one child to four! Getting them all out the door each morning has been tough and your system would really help! Thanks for sharing this!
