  25. Make keeping track of homework and important papers fun to do. Get the children involved in picking out the colors and styles of organizational tools. If they are excited about using these tools, and keeping their things organized they are more likely to do it, and less likely to lose things and get behind in projects.

  106. The best tip for me is to always have everything organized. When homework is finished backpacks and shoes for tomorrow are placed by the door, clothing is laid out the night before and snacks are chosen for the following day.
    It makes things go much smoother for everyone the following morning.
