How to Tame Backpack Paper Clutter

I have a confession. While I have had the occasional good organization idea (I still love using bins to turn shelves into drawers), I continue to find myself overwhelmed by the papers that come home each day in my children’s backpacks. My kids’ backpacks are very organized with folders that contain a “keep home” and a “send back” side, but that doesn’t change the fact that on a daily basis five to ten papers are entering my kitchen every day at 4:00. We’ve tried magnetic clips on the fridge and piles on the kitchen island.  It still seems that the paper clutter creeps up and it requires a Saturday morning of sorting to take us back to a clutter-free kitchen.

Anticipating another year of the same clutter and chaos and finally clearing out cycle, I turned to my favorite organization expert, Molly from GO MOM, Inc. There are many times a day that I find myself wondering WWMD – what would Molly do – and the answer usually helps me get through a task more efficiently and effectively. Molly very graciously offered to create a video for Resourceful Mommy readers, and I know that this will be as big a help to all of you as it has been for me.
