Back to School: Desk Organization

Keeping your student organized can sometimes be a struggle. Whether they are just starting out in Kindergarten or heading to college like our middle son. As I mentioned earlier, we are preparing to take Nick to college in a few weeks. We have been busy getting all the paperwork completed and now it’s time to start getting him organized.

Just like in elementary, middle or high school, college students need to have their desk organized. So today I’m sharing a few ideas for you to help with getting and keeping your students’ (or your) desk organized.

After our trip to Walmart headquarters where we had the chance to see the college dorm rooms at the University of Arkansas, we were inspired to see what else Walmart had to offer.

Let’s start with the desk – whether you build your own or purchase one, a desk is a must. This writing desk is the perfect size and for less than $40 it’s also the perfect price!

Desktop organization and supplies are essential too! A 3-hole paper punch, scissors, pens, an organizing caddy and paper clips were some of the items were chose.
