Reader Hack: Homework Help

file_boxesHomework Clutter? I have two kids that get notes, homework, permission forms, etc and they used to be all over my kitchen island. They were mixed up, and I usually forgot things, which is a pain.

I now have two plastic magazine holders, one for each girl. When they come home from school, they put all their homework, agenda, papers, etc into their own holder. After dinner we look through to see what needs to be processed for the next day. Once the item is complete, it goes into their backpack.

If the bin is empty, there is nothing to do re: homework or school stuff.

Hope I helped.

    What a great idea!!!! Currently I have a file system that is not working. This is perfect and will look sweet on my kitchen counter top.

    That's a great idea. Even with only one child I find things end up everywhere!

    yes, you helped~! Great idea. I'd been using a 'school drawer' but it wasn't quite working – the magazie file is much better – the nightly review is the real key though.
