When my kids get home from school, they do the following things:
1. Take off their shoes and dump playground sand all over my carpet.
2. Drop their backpacks on the floor right in front of the door.
3. Give me a hug and ask for a snack.
I love #3, but 1 and 2 drive me crazy! So this year I'm going to do something about it!
Disclaimer: My children are in elementary school, and they only bring home folders with worksheets, lunchboxes, and the occasionally workbook. Therefore, I use Command Hooks. They WILL NOT WORK with heavier backpacks. Use real hooks! :)
I hit up the store for some hooks that matched our little entryway decor. Then I followed the instructions on the command hooks to align and attach them to the wall. I made one for my youngest too even though he is two. whole. years. away from going to school.
After that, I cut a simple frame and monogram from vinyl, using my Silhouette Cameo. I haven't used it much this summer and I missed it!
That's it! Since school has started my kids have been awesome about hanging up their backpacks. It's so much better, and I'm not nagging them to put those backpacks away, or tripping over them anymore!
Totally unrelated: but since it made it in the picture: I love this little shelf! We put pictures of each of our kids when they were newborns. It always makes me smile as I'm going in or coming out of the house.
Stay tuned for how I'm keeping my KIDS organized for school later this week!
