Keeping it organized!

It seems every school year I need to come up 
with a new way of organization. 
A few years ago I purchased color-coded 
folders for everyone.  
I still use these, but I use them for parent info
on each kiddo
like Dr. info, school info, special notes...
Last year, I added the "Launch Pad".  
We have a table near the front of our house where
 we place things that need to go out the door with us - 
back packs, school lunches...
(helps with the last minute running around the house
trying to find that one special
something that needs to go with us.)

This year, I was came across these at a garage sale!
(I actually got them FREE from a garage sale
that had already closed down!)

There were only three - but that will do for now
With a bit of goo- gone  and new fabric
we have a new plan for organization.
One for each of the big kids with specific files
one labeled with their names - for generic papers, 
one labeled "Mom, Please sign!"
and one labeled "To be done!"
for assignments that the kids are given a
few days to finish.
Hoping this helps us be more organized this school year!! 

(Does anyone know where I can get more of these? 
I'm gonna need a few more for next year!
And a bigger wall!)

I love how you added fabric to them. I always feel like my house has been taken over with paperwork once the school year hits. Cool idea.
