Drop Zone: Organization Station

It’s back to school season! With everyone in the family coming and going all the time, it becomes rather difficult to keep track of it all.

This project creates an area in the home that centralizes communication and organizes all of your essentials, including: homework, mail, and calendars.

Keep your school year on track by creating a Drop Zone, and you’ll be tidy and organized all year!
