1. School Paperwork Storage

I wish my mom did this for me! I’m going to start this for my kids ASAP! You will need file boxes and a file container or cabinet.

Some moms are just super smart! Use this technique for charting and organizing antibiotics now that the flu season is approaching.

9. Ice Cube Tray Organizer for Shopkins

Spray painted gold and hung on a wall! Made by MLau: “”Need Shopkins or other small figurine storage? Just take ice cube trays (2 for $1 at Dollar Tree), spray paint for plastic and voila! Attach to the wall with screws (used here) or command strips! Super easy!”
