An Easy Way to Organize School and Craft Clutter

My kids love to do their homework and crafts on our kitchen table. The only problem I have with this is when it's time to eat, I have to get after them to clean it up. To fix this problem, I found an easy solution that has been working for us for months. I bought a shelf that sits in the corner of our kitchen for them to put their things away when they are done. It works like a charm.

The top shelf is used for school stuff—homework, papers that need signing, and library books. The other two shelves are used for craft supplies, colouring books, crayons, markers, pencils etc. Once they are finished, they now know where everything goes and I no longer have to nag them to clean up their messes.

After working for many years as a successful tech writer, Gwen decided to leave that world behind to become a stay-at-home mom to her two children. Soon after, she started paying more attention to what was in the products she brought into her home and realized that it was not all good. She stepped into action and educated herself on exactly what is safe, and what is not. Once she decided on the products she liked, she soon learned that it was no easy task to find these things in one convenient place so this was when she decided to open up an online eco-store. After all, she couldn’t be the only parent out there who had this problem, right?

After six very rewarding years of being a store owner and being immersed in the "green world," Gwen made the bittersweet decision to close down her popular online shop.

Gwen uses her educational background in Journalism and Computer Programming in the first business she started where she works as a writer and web-editor/content manager. She also writes on her own blog, Delightful Adventures, AND also happens to be YummymummyClub.ca's Sponsored Content Production Manager. She’s busy, right? But guess what? She loves every single thing she has her hands in and wouldn’t trade what she does for anything.
