Back-To-School Ideas

1. Homework Station

This is a great start in your efforts to get everything organized for the new school year. (This idea courtesy of blessedbeyondwords.com.) You can grab a shelf set of scrapbook storage cases and personalize each case for each child in the home. Simply fill up each case with the essentials.


2. Backpack Station

Another quick way to get organized: Use chalkboard paint to cover a portion of your wall. Then - add a wooden border to frame the section of the wall that's painted. Add coat hooks to the bottom of the frame.

3. Magnetic Board

Save some space in your room by creating a magnetic board to hold some of your small items. (If your like me, this is a great way to hold your makeup.) Simply cut a metal sheet to fit a picture frame and attach magnets to the back of your favorite items.

4. Ping Pong Ball Lights

Spice up your dorm room with some ping pong lights. Drill a small hole into each ping pong ball and attach it to each light bulb. It'll look great inside a door room without costing you in the long run.
