It’s no lie that I love my door organizer in the kitchen. I use this sucker every single day. I’m convinced that a shutter door can organize any room in your house. Meet my $5 solution to all things kids + school:
Read more about where the door came from and how and what I used to paint the thing, here. Painting a diagonal on a shutter proved to be a tad bit tricky. An Elmer’s paint pen ended up being my secret weapon.
Here are the organizing tools I used:
- over the door hooks (look for these at the dollar store, Wal Mart, or Target)
- command clear hooks (perfect for smaller items and can be hung anywhere on the door)
- closet maid packet pal baskets (I get the m at Home Depot for $3.88 a piece)
- magnetic knife strip(great for notes and homework and all important papers)
- command clear caddy (pencils, cell phones, lunch money, any smaller item)
- clip board helps to organize kid schedules and ensure that important dates are remembered!
Organizing on a door is great for a small space since a door can lean against any wall.What room should I tackle next : )
Add a basket to the bottom of your door for shoes, and you’ve got all things kid + school organized in one swoop! How do you organize all of the school paraphernalia for your kiddos? When does school start in your neck of the woods? It’s weird not to be joining my fellow teacher troops this year to spruce up classrooms, bulletin boards, and stock up on back to school sales. Are any of you “retired” teachers that still feel the back to school excitement? I’d love to hear…
