It's terrible when you child sits down to do homework and realizes they have the wrong text book or notebook.  To help prevent additional trips to their locker or late homework make books, notebooks and folders easier to identify by coordinating items for each subject.  Cover your algebra book with a bright red color and match it with a bright red notebook.  Don’t cover your books?  Make a color copy of the cover of your biology book and slide it into a notebook with a clear view pocket on the front for easy identification.  

September is Back to School Organizing Month at Simple Solutions Design.  Whether you are a student or a parent of a student, now is the time to establish good habits that will last for the whole school year.  Not only will these tips lead to smoother mornings, less hassle over homework and (hopefully) a more organized home, but they will also set up good habits for school and work in the future.
