Now is a great time for you and your children to go through their papers, artwork, and awards from the just-ended school year. Pick out the favorite/best items, and toss the remaining items. By doing this each year, you will get a chance to “go down memory lane” with your children, and limit the amount of children’s memorabilia you have to store.
The above organizing tip is taken from my booklet, "36 Home Organizing Ideas for Your Family Around the Year". This 16-page booklet provides month-by-month, timely tips to help you and your family organize your home. My booklet also makes a great gift to friends, family, colleagues, clients, and potential clients. To order a hard copy, eBook version, or Android app version of my booklet, please see http://www.thecluttercoach.com/#Products. I also have two additional organizing eBooks listed there, as well as a DVD.
