Can you believe school is over?! My youngest started kindergarten as a baby and somehow during the school year, right before my eyes, has turned into a big girl. I now have a rising 3rd grader and a rising 1st grader… where has the time gone?!
I am so impressed by all the work the kids do throughout the school year. If your house is anything like mine, by June your child’s school papers pile is probably 2 feet tall! Now is the perfect time to skim down the pile and create a storage system that works for you year round.
It's important to get the kids involved in selecting the school art and papers that are kept.
Wondering what to do with all the school workbooks, notebooks, folders and worksheets that come home?
Spend a few minutes and write up a Summer “To Do” List with the kids.
Make life easy and have your beach or pool bag stocked for the day.
Keep a loose routine during the Summer, so chaos doesn’t reign in your home. Have summer reading and chores done in the morning before camp or any play happens.
Take time to enjoy the birds chirping, the late-setting sun , the kids’ creatively playing and summer bbq’s!

Thankfully, after 20 years, we’ve finally helped my parents unload a kitchen desk filled with very dated, useless, and overly cluttered items. With the help of Professional Organizer, Annie Kilbride who owns Life simplified out of Havertown, PA, I spent a Friday evening supporting my parents as they began the task of purging my childhood home.
They don’t plan to move in the next handful of years, but the idea of scaling back on their STUFF is so daunting, that Annie’s help was beyond a blessing! If it was just me with them, the neighbors would probably have called 911 due to the excessive yelling. But with Annie’s presence, there was calmness, listening, learning, and improvement.
Take a look at the rest of this article on Delaware County Moms, written by Melissa A. about the work I did with her parents at their home.
