Organizing Kids Stationery Items

                                                         
One of my favorite bonding activity with the kids is organizing their personal stuff.  It has been a family tradition that every summer break, we have to sort out school supplies lying everywhere in the house.  My kids know that what I hate most is clutter. In fact, once they get hold of my flight details back home, they would already start organizing everything in the house.  That's one thing I like about my kids most, they don't want to disappoint their Mom and even if I'm working away from home, my house is still well maintained.  I am happy that I was able to instill discipline to my kids.  I really believe that Moms can greatly influence their children.  What I love to do, my kids love to do, as well.  I love decorating and organizing and they both love it, too.   

From my last vacation, I've seen that my daughter has too many writing and art tools. She keeps it in a cabinet in the room which we designate to house all those school supplies and craft materials.  But I noticed that no matter how we arranged it, everything gets messed up when they are trying to find something in that cabinet especially those small items

such as colored pencils, pens, pencils, highlighters, erasers, staple wires, etc. So the moment I saw this picture online, I told myself that it is a better way to organize those stuff.  It could save time too as those small items can easily be found.  You don't have to dig on those piles of things inside the cabinet and it's easy to return the items too to where these should be kept.  

I will certainly make one like this when I get back home. 

You could try this, too. :)

  3. KIDS and ORGANIZING ITEMS seems like won't go along well, at least per my experience. Good thing there are fun ways to do it, thanks to social media and internet inspiration.

  6. I also need a way to organize the kids' art materials and toys. So kalat! I'm also someone who's so sentimental over things, especially gifts. That's why I find it hard to declutter.
