Organizing School Supplies Workspace

It’s been almost two months since I wrote about the DYMO Labelmaker as everyone was getting ready to go back to school. (Where did that time go? It’s almost time to start putting up the October classroom decorations.)

Anyway, if you didn’t take my advice them and get one of these useful and fun electronic label makers, it’s not too late and in fact, now that the academic school year has been underway for a few weeks and the kids are starting to get into subjects in depth, now may be the perfect time.

The number one item on any list of tips to help students perform better in school is for them to get organized. Labeling everything they use and in their environment works towards this goal on several levels. First, using the label maker is fun for the kids so it gets them motivated to start the whole process. Second, you can’t label things when they are messy so the kids need to take the plunge and organize all their stuff.

Once everything has been arranged neatly and the stickers have been applied, the kids will stay organized because everything has a place and the place is clearly marked. The labels will also help avoid confusion with school books if they covers are identical. It is so disheartening and disruptive for kids when they realize they grabbed the wrong book from their lockers or desks and can’t do their homework as a result.

By the way, as you can see from the picture below, these label makers are not just great at organizing school supplies. They can do wonders for your office or home office too.
