24 Back to School Organization Ideas

These back to school organization ideas make the perfectionist in me so happy! I’m not a very organized person, so I can promise you that if you open my mudroom door right now, you won’t see perfectly lined up shoes with hooks for jackets and names centered perfectly over top. I’d love to be that organized, but then I come back to reality and remember that I have three messy kids.

Even still, somehow, seeing other people’s organizing ideas makes me drool a little and hope that maybe one day my kids will put their shoes away neatly, fold their own laundry and organize their school supplies. Oh dreams!


It’s back to school time and that means it’s time to start thinking about jackets, backpacks, schedules, extracurriculars, and library books! But with all of those things that our kids need/love/enjoy, how do you keep it all organized? All of the pencil crayons, glue, scissors, markers, pens and paper that they’re going to need for their homework. Where do you store it?

I think the thing that shocked me the most about my kids going to school is the amount of paper that comes home from school. There’s so. much. paper. We get crafts (so many crafts!), forms, newsletters, and all sorts of other things. I have no idea what to do with any of it? In another couple of years, we’ll have three kids in school. It’s making my head spin a little bit thinking about all the paper that will come home then!

It must have been similar when we were in school? I remember my mom had a huge pile of papers that used to be stacked next to the telephone when we were kids. And any time she’d clean out the pile, someone in our family would miss something and they’d get mad at her. lol My poor mom. I remember thinking it was such a messy pile, and I always wondered why she kept it in the kitchen, but now I get it. Sorry I doubted you mom!

24 Back to School Organization Ideas

This list of back to school organization ideas started when I was searching Pinterest for ways to keep those school papers organized. I realized that there are so many other back to school items that need to be organized too! You can organize chores, school supplies, backpacks, shoes, schedules. Imagine how much less stress there would be if everything had its own place and it was all neat and organized?!

I love scoping out ideas that other people have tried! What can I say? Seeing other people’s organized lives somehow makes me imagine my own life being that organized – and that gives me a brief zen moment where it feels like everything is at peace.


From family command centers to weekly meal plan boards, there are tons of ideas here to help you get your house just a little more organized this fall.
