Inexpensive, stiff-bristled paint brushes--in a variety of widths--are a great addition to the cleaning tote. Use them to dust the tops of books, whisk dirt from baseboards and corners, clean dust from blinds, and remove crumbs from upholstery.
Back-to-School Countdown Day 8
It's not just our family that exits the door each morning during the school, it's our stuff! Can you find what you need to get the children off to school on time each day?
Briefcases and backpacks, library books and lunch sacks travel with us in and out of the house each day. Arriving home, these possessions scatter to the winds; in the morning, precious time is wasted rounding them up for another day's use.
If you're playing too many games of "Where's the permission slip?", it's time to consider taming the chaos with a family launch pad.
A simple concept, a family launch pad is a dedicated space for daily traveling companions. A bookcase or storage cubby, the launch pad is the place to deposit backpacks, sports equipment, and projects needed for each day of school or work.
By setting aside storage space near the door for each family member, a launch pad creates a home for these migrant possessions.
Today in the Back-to-School Countdown, set up a dedicated launch pad for each family member to start the school year off right. Get 'em out the door on time!
