The Best Parenting Advice
On Staying Organized
“Always carry a zip-top bag. It’s handy for crayons, Cheerios, car sickness…” —Sherrie Westin, chief marketing officer at Sesame Workshop
“When it comes to plastic doodads, I have a rule: After 48 hours, it ‘disappears.’ ” —Barbara Reich, author of Secrets of an Organized Mom
“Moms are often forced to take on everyone else’s schedule. Don’t let it happen to you. Instead, hang up a family calendar and put the responsibility on your kids to update it. When my kids were younger, I bought one with big squares for little kids’ handwriting. Even if you have to remind them repeatedly to add their appointments, it will save you time in the long run.” —Catherine Nunes, creator of TimeToo time-saving tools and BabyTracker journals
