Back to school season is upon us, and it's the perfect time to get organized. I bought two pencil boxes for 60 cents each to organize hair/makeup items, and I bought items to put together next year's financial book!

Donate old games (resource rooms for special ed), arts & crafts (crayons, construction paper, jars washed and cleaned, yarn, and such), old magazines and newspapers for Art classes at Schools. Donate sewing machines, pasta makers, etc to Home Ec ( to teach kids how to sew and cook). Donate instruments to band/orchestra for kids who can't afford to buy but want to learn.
With Schools getting cut backs, this is a great way to declutter your home and help out your schools and students. Collect from neighborhood drives to help schools and link a community.
It's back to school time. Sales are on, each year the teachers in your local schools spend thousands of their own money getting supplies for kids and classrooms. If everyone out their ( single folks too) spent $25 and got things like gift cards, crayons, copy paper and so forth teachers would have spend less on other folks kids. We talk a good game in this country about caring about education, let's show it.
Most schools will give you a class supply list for the asking, if you don't know what to buy.
I have found that I need to add exercise right into my everyday routine. I drop my 3 youngest children off to school at 8:30 and then head right to the gym, before I had a gym membership I walked around the school a few times. If I was to go home I would never go back out to go to the gym.
