Back to School Organization

The school year is right around the corner. Want to get your kids excited about going back. Recreate their closet 
space. I know they have been asking you to take them shopping for some newest trends, but before they can go 
shopping ask them to get what they have organized. Have them go through their closets and sort their clothes, what 
fits and what doesn't.  Through out the years children and teens can collect a lot of clothing.  Sometimes its hard
to throw away a shirt or your favorite jeans, but if you haven't worn it in a year you probably won't. Let them donate 
their clothes that don't fit to Goodwill or the Salvation Army. You can also take the clothes to Platos Closet which is 
for teens or Once Upon a Child, both of these stores buys back clothing.  All great places to start for donating clothes.
If your closet isn't already separated with organizational products, you can go to your local Bed Bath & Beyond, 
Target,or Walmart to find great products for organizing. Now that a lot of college students are going back for another 
semester these stores offer great deals on organizational products. Make this a fun activity for your child/teen, while 
secretly teaching them how to be organized.
After all that organization I'm pretty sure you have cleared out some space in their closet and its time for some 
fun and a little quality time shopping with your kid.  

Think money well spent to get you child/teen motivated to start the new school year.
