Back to School with a Backpack Station
You know the thing I love so much about organizing is there is no right or wrong answer. What works for one family may or may not work for another but that’s what makes it so exciting. Today I’ve compiled six different backpack stations that are each amazing despite being so different from one another. Perhaps seeing how other people manage an area of their home will give you some ideas for yours. It’s like mixing and matching for house accessories. Have fun!!
Thanks to all these organized ladies for letting us peek into their homes!
First up Debbie from Virtually Organized shows us her closet backpack station. I really love those fabric bins that really do hold a lot of stuff.
Next we have Amy from Mom’s Toolbox (great blog design by the way!). Below you’ll see that they did away with the closet doors in order to add some built in shelving to create plenty of shoe storage underneath the bench as well as in the cubbies above all the hooks. Amy just recently reorganized this space and you can see her before photo here.
Next Jen of Our Daily Big Top shows us her backpack station. I’m betting this makes her mornings run so much smoother!
One of my readers, who doesn’t blog, sent me these next two pictures of her entryway area. Julie dressed her backpack station up by adding some big name letters to avoid any fighting over the hooks. Great idea!
Here is the other side that includes a side table to house some trays for paper (one for each member of the family) as well as a magazine holder for all the magazines that come in and are waiting to be read. Love the mirror/bulletin board with the hooks as well.
Next Lori of She of 3 Angels shares her fantastic backpack station complete with shoe cubbies. Easy and inexpensive. Above the hooks she also has a terrific idea for keeping on top of the kid’s schedules. She goes into detail about that on this post. Check it out!
Finally, Jennifer of This Is My Munchkinland was kind enough to share these next two pictures of her entryway hooks and cubbies. I really do love how functional these cubbies are. You can purchase them at most department stores for reasonable prices and they really do provide you with a lot more space. Most excellent!
Happy Friday everyone!
