Summer Organization Recs


“To know where you can find a thing is the chief part of learning.”


Things to Organize your Summer:

1. Franklin Covey or Mead organizers/planners (I really do find that this helps a lot. It sets out the entire summer at your fingertips and you can keep track of appointments, playdates that you might plan ahead for.)

2. For bins and baskets:

Crate & Barrel

The Container Store

Target and Staples have a great selection of bins, baskets, and boxes.

3. Find out when kids eat free to ease up summer cooking and to stay on budget.


“One of the advantages of being disorderly is that one is constantly asking exciting discoveries.”

Getting Ready for Summer Recess


This is the last full week the kids are in school for the year. I need to get the house ready for kids to be home 24/7.

Find the books, check out Pinterest, line up some movies, think about our summer food tasting and hide the snacks and cereal where they can’t be devoured on the first day of summer.

Those of you with kids, what are your plans for when school’s out?

For those of you without kids, is there anything that you do each summer that is only a summer thing?
