    Kathi Lipp wrote this book for people like her – people that want to get organized, and then move on! Instead of bringing in a canned organization system that may or may not work for you, she strives to help you build an organization plan around your life and habits. For a sense of immediate victory, she suggests jumping right into the area that causes you the most stress. Start the attack by evaluating everything you use the room for, then decide how you are going to define the areas for those activities. The second step is to use her three-box, two-bag system and sort: things that belong in other rooms; things that go back in this room after you clean and organize; and things to donate, toss in the garbage, and recycle. Third, take a little time to do some light cleaning while you’ve got the space all cleared out. In steps 4 and 5 she offers tips for storage/organization in that space and keeping it clean. She wraps up with further tips on saving space, time, energy, and money in that area and a small bonus project or two. After moving through every room (including the garage and basement!), Kathi moves on to projects for your family, employing the same five-step system to help control your laundry, schedule, meal planning, grocery shopping, kids’ chores, paperwork, and travel. Then she shifts the same strategy to projects that center on your personal life: your schedule, getting out the door in the morning, to-do list, car, handbag, computer, and wardrobe. Even if you’re not the next Martha Stewart (the author might say especially if you’re not the next Martha Stewart!), this system can bring some much-needed order to your life! – Steph

    Have you ever had difficulty keeping track of your dry erase markers? You would store them in their original box, except that isn't very handy. Who wants to keep opening and closing the box over and over? Well, now there is a solution – The Expo Dry Erase Organizer. Each organizer comes with 6 chisel-tipped dry erase markers (black, blue, brown, green, orange & red) and a Styrofoam-backed eraser in a sturdy plastic tray. An adhesive strip on the back of the organizer tray allows you to mount it on or near your whiteboard. ~ Rachel P.

      These are great for students to brain-storm ideas or complete an assignment. They will provide the perfect platform for paired or group projects where you must collectively brain-storm ideas. Each two-sided mat has a variety of graphic organizers around the border (29 total) that the student can apply to his assignment. A large center area (12.5” x 8”) has room to use a dry-erase marker, just draw a copy of the graphic organizer that fits your need. Outline an essay, prepare a presentation, or even just learn to organize your thoughts. Great for the visual learner! This can really be useful for your right brain learners too. Some of the organizers include: sequence, relational, compare/contrast, concept development, evaluation, classifying and more– specifically: Venn, fishbone, ladder, T-charts, word webs and more. Overall size is 17” x 11”, heavy-duty laminated (placemat size) ~ Sara

      This resource book details how to use anything from CD sleeves, to letter and business envelopes, to manila envelopes (from 2” x 4” to 12” x 15”) as learning tools. Repurpose envelopes for projects, study guides and daily work. Dinah is a master at repurposing—even reusing envelope clasps. Learn how to make 3 dimensional “foldables” such as display cases, cubes, shutter-fold displays, picture frames, accordion folds and pocket projects. Why do all this? Dinah says that in doing so children are not merely learning to recycle, but they are also practicing collaboration, problem solving, and synthesizing using kinesthetic and visual manipulatives. The basic principal of this book is project-based learning (PBL). The learning occurs as the student creates the project: researching topics and building to present to others. For example, in literature class, study different points of view and then make a trifold display. Show examples of muscle types in an accordion fold. Demonstrate integers on a cube. The author includes several pages of idea stimulators for different subjects such as listed above. She also shares how to make a “publishing center” for your classroom. The included DVD details each project type. Click on the icon next to the title to locate the appropriate video. An economical and hands-on approach tool for learning (and remembering!) a plethora of things.

    With four young children in the house and wanting to encourage learning opportunities, we, of course, have a ton of magnetic letters covering every square inch of surface on our refrigerator. Okay, so maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration, but it's mostly true! The older two like to spell out their names or other words while the younger two just throw the magnets all over the kitchen floor. The older girls can never find the letters they need, and it always looks cluttered. This handy-dandy little tray could solve all our problems! It measures 13.5" x 8.5," is 1 1/3" deep and is divided into thirty 1-1/2" x 2" compartments with two slightly smaller compartments in addition. You can sort all your letters into their own compartments for easy storage and locating! Of course, you wouldn't have to limit yourself to storing alphabet tiles or letter sets - this clear plastic container would work for storing a myriad of small objects. And don't worry, there is a pushtight lid! ~ Megan

    Super-size your family’s organization with this large grid wall calendar. The 17-month calendar runs from August of one year to December of the next. The large 2” x 3” dated squares allow plenty of room for penciling in appointments, daily dinner menus and other events. Each month features a “Don’t Forget” section for jotting down important reminders, as well as an area for including a monthly project list. In the top right hand corner of each month there is a list of suggested projects to help you stay on track with your seasonal cleaning, holiday projects and vacation planning. A 3” x 3” square for recording family notes and reminders appears nearly every month. A sheet of about 300 colorful stickers is included to help you keep track of birthdays, anniversaries, vacations, holidays, meetings, bill payment, no school or school half days, and dentist, doctor or veterinarian appointments. At the back of the calendar, there are 72 perforated 2.75” x 5” “To Do” lists that you can tear out. Inside the back cover there is a large space for writing in emergency numbers and other important contact information. The calendar expands when opened to a generous 15” x 22”, allowing you to easily see your schedule at a glance. Rachel P.

       As the mom of former hot wheels-loving children, this organizer desk would have been a favorite when my children were younger. There is much here to love: 2 inner pockets (organize trucks from cars!) that can hold up to 150 cars; 4 external pockets to hold a water bottle, book, pencil or any other must have accessory; durable handles for secure carrying; and a removable padded lid that can double as a lap desk or roadway play mat (PERFECT for car trips!!). If you empty the organizer it can even lay flat for storage! Versatile and quality made. ~Deanne
