It’s that time of year! School will be starting soon (I know, too soon!) and with that moms and students everywhere will be challenged to keep their new schedules, events and activities organized. Keeping a calendar is an essential part in helping manage your daily activities and prioritize your time. It’s also a great way to kick off a new school year and even start 2016 off on the right foot. Did you know that you can reduce stress by simply logging appointments, events and assignments in a daily planner? When kept up-to-date, a planner allows you to find information quickly, prioritize effectively and schedule appointments on the spot.

As you may know from year’s past, I’m a bit old school and prefer writing down appointments, events and day-to-day tasks in a traditional daily planner. With so many stylish designs in a variety of price points, it was tough to narrow down my favorites! If I’ve missed any you love, please comment and let me know.

Fresh Picks :: Laundry Room Supplies

The chic laundry room design by Evars + Anderson earlier this week had me thinking about the unavoidable task of cleaning, folding and ironing the endless laundry that piles up. Okay, I rarely iron, but seem to be washing and folding clothing several times a week.

To brighten up the dreaded task, I’ve rounded up a few fresh, functional and innovative laundry room products to help you get the job done.

Round-up :: DIY Message Boards

Having difficulty juggling appointments, activities and homework schedules for your family? As my kids have gotten older, I’ve found that it’s more and more challenging to kept it all straight. A message board in our kitchen nook has helped us tremendously. If you are are need of a command center, I’ve rounded up a few DIY message board options that you may want to consider.

Love this sleek, colorful dry-erase message board via BHG. It’s made from a piece of glass that’s simply been painted on the back and framed. Love!

This DIY magnetic board from 4 Men and 1 Lady, is made of a 26 gauge galvanized steel sheet and then framed.  It also doubles as a dry erase board for quick messages. Would love great in a kitchen, mudroom or playroom.

The folks at Martha Stewart created this chic message center using a store-bought cork board that was painted and upgraded with a brass rod to hold mail and hooks to hold keys. Love the many functions it provides!

Although this option isn’t as versatile as the others, I love the simplicity. The could be a fun DIY project or purchased through George & Willy.

happy organizing,
