The waning days of school means that backpacks will return home filled to the brim with arts, crafts and undelivered notices. Purge the pack with your child and carry onto the bedroom to sort through clothing, toys and hobbies that have gotten out of control. ( I can only deal with so many special shiny rocks and shells in the bedroom) Let children see you eliminate items from your collections as well. That means shoes, books and movies too. Children will mimic what they see and gain a sense that organizing is a regular family habit.
