Organization is not my strong point, but I have really been working hard on staying organized and getting rid of clutter. My amazing, creative, artistic son (age 8) is also extremely cluttered by nature, and I've been trying to train him to make a spot for his stuff and put it back in the same spot every time. This works fine for toys, but for art stuff - argh! I love that he is so creative; he works on drawing or origami or other art projects for large chunks of every day. But those projects and the aftermath end up all over the house! Notebooks, pencils, loose pieces of paper (used or not), finished projects, things in progress, origami creations, paintbrushes, you name it. And heaven forbid I should get rid of even one piece of paper he has marked on. I really need some more ideas for how to deal with the overwhelming number of creations and supplies. Help!
