Getting Organized for Back to School – Professional Organizers Blog Carnival

Since it’s that time of year when summer holidays are winding down and students of all ages are getting ready to go back to school, this edition of the Professional Organizers Blog Carnival is about Getting Organized for Back to School.

Our sponsor for this month is Leslie Josel of Order Out of Chaos, who is a Professional Organizers Blog Carnival Star Blogger and previously sponsored the Students and Time Management edition. If you’re not familiar with her award-winning Academic Planner (shown in the above photo), you really must check it out! There’s even an affiliate program, so you can earn commissions by promoting it on your own website.

Be sure to check out my readers’ submissions! With tips for everything from establishing routines to setting up a dorm room efficiently, there’s something here for every student.

Please show the bloggers your appreciation by leaving comments and sharing their blog posts (or this one) with your network, using the hashtag #POBC in your social media posts.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to this Blog Carnival, especially our wonderful sponsor.

Next month’s Blog Carnival is all about Space Design, and it will be sponsored by Organize A – Z. You may make your submission any time from now until Tuesday, September 18 at 7:00 PM EDT.

    Amazing group of posts, Janet! And what excellent timing for getting parents and kids ready for returning to school. Our daughters are grown now, but I have such fond memories of all the pre-school prep we did together. We loved organizing areas and collecting all of the supplies to get them ready for a successful school year. The getting ready was an integral part of having a positive transition between summer, fall, and a new school year.

      I always love reading about your family, Linda. You’re obviously very close, and I can’t help but think how truly blessed you all are to have each other.
