Office Max helps kids get ready for back to school

officemax1It is hard to believe The Little Write Gal starts school again this week.  The summer has flown by!  If you are out shopping for school supplies, be sure and check out Office Max, who recently sent me some products from their new Schoolio Von Hoolio back-to-school line.  Look at how cute they are!  The Little Write Gal just loves the owls and cupcakes.  Her favorite item is the pink, yellow, and orange floral clipboard.  She has been using it this week to hold all of her lists for getting ready to go back to school.

officemax3I was very fortunate to be invited to participate in a blog cast which featured renowned organizational expert, Peter Walsh; Heather Wolpert-Gawron, an award-winning teacher; Ana Picazo, a well-known mom blogger; and two students. Together, they discussed strategies, tips and advice from the real experts on how to organize and prepare students for back-to-school.  Here are some tips from the blog cast you can use to help organize back to school in your house:

TIPS FOR ORGANIZING YOUR HOME
1) Find the Vision you have for a Space
2) Make Organization a Family Value
3) Use the Right Tools for Great Organization

TIPS FOR ORGANIZING YOUR CHILD
1) Show that you Value Organization
2) Establish Clear Limits and Routines
3) Always ‘Finish the Cycle’ (Complete a Task)

TIPS FOR THE CLASSROOM
1) Establish Clear Routines
2) Involve Kids with Classroom Organization
3) Use Words, Pictures and Color to help Organize

Thank you Peter Walsh and Office Max for sending the Little Write Gal these great school supplies and for giving us tips to keep us organized for the 2009-10 school year.  For more organizational tips check out my post from April of this year called, “Office Max and Peter Walsh team up to make you organized.”

Spring Makeover

800px-spring_flowersI am SO excited because The Write Gal is getting a Spring Makeover.  More details coming soon!  I can’t wait.  Hopefully it will inspire me to get back to regular posting.  Sorry about last week.  I was on Spring Break from school but did not  feel very Spring-like myself.  That is about to change.  🙂
