So, to make life a bit easier and bearable to mom (and dad too), here are some backpack organization ideas.



There are so many creative ways to organize backpacks!

There are so many creative ways to organize those pesky backpacks so they don’t end up all over the floor. You can do something as simple as adding hooks to a wall or get your DIY on and build yourself an entire mudroom. And anything in between!


 How are you currently organizing your kids’ backpacks? 

My daughter has a hook on the back of her bedroom door, and that’s where her backpack belongs. Aka: out of the way, making me a happy mom.







 More back to school organization ideas are coming at you next week, so stay tuned. 

Have a great weekend, friends!
