More Adventures in Organizing School Supplies

As noted in my previous post, I’ve been working on getting the boys’ school clothes sorted and organized.

In case you forgot, this is what it looked like before…..

And now…..after LOTS of sorting, organizing, and stacking….

I think you’ll agree that it’s MUCH MUCH better!

You might have noticed the pink and blue baskets and the school themed gift bags?  Those are for the boys’ teachers and 2 other people at the school that I like to get a little something for at the beginning of each school year!

Didn’t they turn out cute? (ummm..if the boys’ teachers are reading, stop now or you’ll ruin your surprise, hee-hee-hee)

Each of the baskets have been adapted for the appropriate grade level (for example, Nolan’s teacher is getting bookmarks for her class, and Carter’s teacher is getting some foam building blocks).

Cute folders, a to do list, Sharpie markers (big and small), black and blue pens, stickers, bookplates, hand sanitizer, a first-aid kit, bandaids, lotion, and a few other cute items….

These cute bags are for 2 other people at the school that I like to get a little something for….they deserve it!  The Principal and the Assistant Principal!

Alright ladies…if you’re reading, and you don’t want to know what’s in your goody bag, stop now!  HA!

They are each getting a package of cute folders, Sharpie markers (big and little), black and blue pens, bandaids, a first-aid kit, lotion, hand sanitizer, and a notepad!  Just something little for them to know that I (& my family) appreciate all their hard work!

Have I mentioned how much I LOVE “back to school”?

p.s.  I promised I would show you the boys’ supplies, but I didn’t get a picture of that yet.  Stay tuned.    : )



  1. You are so organized!! Can you come tackle my house?!

  2. Wow! That is a lot of work getting the boys ready for school. No easy task. Even down to the gift baskets for the teachers. But it also looks like a lot of fun too. :)

  3. Your gifts are so thoughtful! you know how I feel about them, I want your boys in my class!! :) Seriously though those thoughtful sort of things really mean more to those people than you would know!!


Thank you for taking the time to comment! I read each and every one and treasure every word!
