    Had a problem w/ turning in homework. Did it; “forgot” to turn it in. Resorted to file folders for each day of the week. For example, Tuesday homework assignments were brought home in the Tuesday folder. Once completed, tranferred to the Wednesday folder and put in backpack. Wednesday folder went to school w/ completed homework; returned w/ assignments. Worked well & marked improvement in grades!

    My girls are 7 and 9 and I am still trying to find new ways to be organized. My most resent mini project was placing 3M hooks inside a cupboard door to hang labeled and color coded keys. Now I know where the extra set of keys are all the time!

    My kids are starting a new technology based school so there will be no ‘agenda’ to write it. It will all be based on a computer program. My kids are a lot like me, they need to be able to physically write down any information that they need to remember. It would be wonderful to have something for them that represents their personalities and that they can use.

    My worst habit is that I make physical piles of papers as reminders of what I need to to do. I have lots of piles.

    My son is currently in 5th Grade. He is extremely forgetful. He constantly forgets his homework and the teachers do not discipline him as he has such an amazing smile that could light up the room. HE NEEDS TO WRITE THINGS DOWN. UGH. HELP

    My daugher is a high school sophomore, and today is her 15th birthday. What a great gift idea to keep her organized and motivated with style! She has the best intentions but tends to take on too much at one time, leaving tons of unfinished good ideas and projects in her wake. She balances school, social activities and competitive tennis – successfully, but tipping toward chaos! Her bedroom calendar still says March, and we are already four weeks into the new school year….:-(

    I have at times wished so much to be better organized. I had knee surgery a year ago and I thought wow I will be on the ball after that. I thought I would feel better, but I did not. My house seems to me to be a disaster and I can’t pull it together for some reason. I pray for some kind of relief to figure out how to do that. I have volunteered to work at the Holy Family Ministry Food Pantry in our City and it is so hard to keep track of everything. The last straw was my nephew graduated at the top of his class in May 2012. I gave him his graduation card and cash this past Sunday and apologized. I let him know how proud I am of his accomplishments. HELP!

    My daughter is in middle school and currently only uses a notebook to keep up with assignments. It’s really messy and unorganized.

    My soon to be Freshman is a mess when it comes to being organized for school. He loses assignments, can’t remember what needs to be done and can’t keep track of due dates. I’ve tried tons of planners, but the buttoned up planner is exactly what he needs. thanks for the opportunity to win.

    My own worst habit is to procrastinate, especially on the longer term projects. I’d put the due date down in my planner, but not think about it again until the week it was due, hopefully not a Monday!

    My 9-year-old daughter has a beautifully organized binder complete with tabs for “Things Mom Needs to Review,” “Things to Return to School,” “Homework,” “Drawings,” and etc; however, her laundry is piled all over the place in her room! Every time she goes to get dressed, she has to go through every pile to find what she’s looking for. It would be so much easier if she would just PUT IT AWAY! Ugh! Help!

    DD isn’t in school yet, but my worst habit is having everything on little scraps of paper that I can never find again!

    This was going to be our year for organization. We have established great routines for morning, afterschool, evening, and bedtime. But, organization habits for school work is still in the works. I was able to create a homework caddy from a shower caddy with all the supplies he needs to do his homework. If nothing else, that has been a blessing. No more searching for a pencil or glue stick.
