Staying organized with kids can be a challenge! Keeping track of important school papers, artwork, and the family weekly schedule of activities and chores can be difficult. If your family isn’t organized, papers will be lost, artwork ruined, sports practice and events missed and chores not completed.
I have upped my game this season with the Home Collection by Post-it® Brand, Scotch® Brand and Command™ Brands. This collection of products is designed to provide simple solutions to keep our every day tasks and schedules organized. When you are organized, there is less time spent searching for important papers and more time left to enjoy with your family.

Simple Solutions to Keep Your Home Organized
Our kitchen is the hub of our home, it is where everything seems to take place – and everything ends up out of my kids’ book bags. Trying to stay organized is a challenge we all face. I’ve implemented a few products from the Home Collection by Post-it Brand, Scotch Brand and Command Brands to better organize my family and tidy things up.
I stay organized online with Google calendar that my husband and I both share. However, my kids still ask what they are doing today, tomorrow, this weekend. They need to be able to access their schedules to know what is going on and to be responsible for assignments, chores, and to know when their sports practices are. The Post-it Dry Erase Planner is genius! I place it right on the side panel by my refrigerator.
It adheres to any surface just like a Post-it Note. Using a dry erase marker, I jot down my kids’ sports, important school events and projects, and chores. My kids know their colors – blue for Elijah and red for Elizabeth. This makes it easy for my kids to see what they are responsible for that week. I also include family events like movie night, camping, or pizza night! This is a really easy solution that lets kids know what their week ahead entails and allows them to be more responsible.
My kids are little art machines! They create artwork in volumes. Displaying their latest artwork can clutter a home quickly without much time at all. I used to hang drawings on the refrigerator but wouldn’t you know it, food would get splashed on them every time – then we have messy artwork and kids with their feelings hurt.
Now, I use a few different products to properly display their art.
On the refrigerator, I use a Scotch Display Frame to show off my kids’ latest artwork.
I can pop in any piece of artwork I wish. Right now, I only have 1, but I plan to pick up a second one so I’ll have one for each child. This way, I can display a piece of artwork per child in a tasteful manner.
I also added Post-it Magnet Grip Discs to my refrigerator to hold important papers, forms to be filled out, and artwork. Each disc can hold multiple papers to keep you organized.
I hate a cluttered refrigerator with papers stuck on with magnets. This is such a cleaner, nicer approach.
I added the Post-it Grip Display Rail to my home office. The rail grips papers easily and displays them nicely. This could also be used in a more common area to place important forms and papers to be returned to school, envelopes to be mailed, coupons to be used, etc.
The rail can hold multiple papers even overlapping on top of each other.
On the rail, I also have a Post-it Display Card. This had a more solid backing that displays artwork of all shapes and sizes easily and protects them with the plastic cover. I used it to display my daughter’s butterfly artwork since it was an odd size to display otherwise. You could also use the display card for smaller pieces of art in a sort of collage.
These are just a few products from the Home Collection by Post-it Brand, Scotch Brand and Command Brands that have made my home more organized and tidy while keeping essential papers on-hand and displaying artwork and mementos from my kids.
