Last week I had the awesome opportunity to join an exclusive webcast with Peter Walsh and Office Max. The webcast/blogcast was called OfficeMax’s “Get Organized for Back-to-School” blogcast and it was all about getting organized and getting in to the “back to school” mode. Our local schools here in Illinois start next week so the timing for this webcast couldn’t have been better.
During the webcast Peter gave us some really neat tips on ways to get your home, family and children for this years school season. Unfortunately, our twins didn’t want to cooperate, so I couldn’t stay for the entire presentation, but they were awesome enough to send me a recap of all the tips so I could share them with you! (You can also view the blogcast below)
Here is a recap of what we learned:
TIPS FOR HOME
1) Find the Vision you have for a Space
2) Make Organization a Family Value
3) Use the Right Tools for Great Organization
TIPS FOR ORGANIZING YOUR CHILD
1) Show that you Value Organization
2) Establish Clear Limits and Routines
3) Always ‘Finish the Cycle’ (Complete a Task)
