With a new school year starting, you might find that your kiddos could use some help organizing their time and things a bit better.

Follow these little tips to give your kids some helpful tools to stay organized and confident:

Create a Keepsake Quota. With your child, pick out a treasure box or set of shelves, and instruct your kiddo that whatever fits in the space is for keeping. Let him/her choose how to fill the space and donate the remaining items.

Prioritize the toys. Label four boxes or shelves with A, B, C, and D. Arrange the toys according to importance, with the most used and played with in A and the old and outgrown toys in D (D for donate). Fill the rest of the spaces with all the other “in betweener” toys.

Everything has a home. Help your kiddo get in the routine of putting things back in the same place. Just like people, toys, clothes, papers, books, and everything else has a special place where it lives. Every time you use something, be sure to place the item back in its home so you always know where to find what you need and when you need it.

With these little tools, you can help your child develop some excellent organizational skills.
