Neaten Your Nest in the news – Back to School Organizing

You’ll have to excuse my lack of blog posts lately. I’ve been focusing on the ‘in-person’ portion of the business lately. Last Saturday I attended a Women’s Business Expo to do a little promotion and networking.


Then this morning, I did another segment on Fox News morning show in Colorado Springs! This time I discussed back to school organizing. I feel I have to mention that I had no idea what camera was actually turned on, so just graciously ignore the fact that I’m smiling at someone standing slightly to your left. Oh well, can’t win ‘em all!

I tried to give some tips that were practical for back to school, but that didn’t just focus on school supplies and backpacks. I discussed snacks, preparing outfits, and homework stations. I hope a few of these are helpful!

  1. That was a great video and I love the way you incorporated the child into the whole thing. Building good habits is so important. I am going to incorporate the “one coathanger” tip here. I always say “get tomorrow’s clothes out this afternoon” so if something is missing eg sports uniform, I have time to get it ready for the next day. Life is so much more fun for everyone without before school meltdowns. :)

  2. Wow Erin! I just watched your video and I thought it was fabulous for so many reasons. Your ideas and tips were brilliant and you were so articulate and looked fabulous. I am very impressed! ~Thea

    • Thank you Charlotte! I was hoping I could come up with a few fresh ideas so it wasn’t the same old tips. Hopefully I did that!

  3. just watched your video Erin! :-) you look great and loved all your tips and I agree that it is important to have your kids practice all these as soon as they can! loved all your ideas too! :-)

    • THanks so much! It was a lot of fun and I hope to get to go back! I think it’s so important to involve the kids in as many ways as possible, even though it sometimes takes 3 times as long! :)
