Color and style make organization more attractive to children. Really. Cubbies, files and a place for their stashes make homework time and locating papers that need signing less of a burden. A simple bookcase in a corner of the kitchen or in your back hall could easily be converted to help school-goers stay organized.Tell us: Where do your children do their homework, and how is that working for you?More: See 9 projects you can do now that school's in session
Update your workspace. Sorting through stacks of paper has got to be one of the least appealing organizing tasks, but as with a visit to the dentist, you know you'll feel better when it's done. Set aside a whole morning to tackle this area, and plan a fun activity as a reward for afterward. Consider signing up for online statements and digital subscription services to cut down on future paper overload.Style note: Choose one style and color of storage and file boxes for an orderly look.
Keep clutter at bay. Benita Larsson of Chez Larsson is supremely organized; a look at any corner of her Stockholm apartment reveals tons of tips on getting on top of clutter. Note how she uses matching white storage boxes, neat cubbyholes and fresh shades of green and yellow to create this perfectly pulled-together nook.
