Organizing Favorites: Back to School Edition!

my favorite organizing links for August 15/14

Happy Friday y’all!  Welcome to the back to school edition of my Friday Favorites, the post where I share my favorite organizing links of the week 🙂

I am super excited because I have my brother and his lovely wife and three kiddos coming to visit us in a couple weeks all the way from Ontario.  I can’t wait to see them!  This means we are overhauling my pack rat daughter’s room to make it guest ready.  I love preparing a guest room for company and my daughter is so sweet to give up her room for a week.  I think she’s secretly glad to have an excuse to purge stuff although she will NEVER admit it.  Plus I bought her a brand spanking new bookcase to house her collection of books which she loves so it’s all good 🙂

What will you be organizing this weekend?  Nobody ever really answers this question and I’m really hoping it’s not because nobody is doing any organizing.  Something, anything, I want to hear about it!!

    Kind of an organizing project: I’m going to take pictures of several baby clothing items to attempt to sell, and post them to our local Facebook group. And I’m finishing getting our homeschool organized to start in a couple weeks. Does that count? 🙂

    This weekend I needed (!) to declutter and organise my July photos. The bulk was done last night and now I’m procrastinating by reading your blog before I do the last bit.

    I should get onto that!
