MHCT&M: Backpack Organization Ideas

Can you believe how fast summer if flying by? 
 
 
Back to school season is approaching us rapidly, which means my brain goes into organization mode. One of the biggest annoyances during the school year are backpacks. Backpacks, backpacks everywhere. So, to make life a bit easier and bearable to mom (and dad too), here are some backpack organization ideas.
 
  There are so many creative ways to organize backpacks! 
 
 There are all kinds of ways to organize backpacks. There's something for every space, big and small, and can be as simple or as elaborate as you like. 
Check out these ten ideas. It's hard to pick a favorite!

There are so many creative ways to organize those pesky backpacks so they don't end up all over the floor. You can do something as simple as adding hooks to a wall or get your DIY on and build yourself an entire mudroom. And anything in between!
 
 How are you currently organizing your kids' backpacks? 
My daughter has a hook on the back of her bedroom door, and that's where her backpack belongs. Aka: out of the way, making me a happy mom.
 
 
   
 
 
 More back to school organization ideas are coming at you next week, so stay tuned. 
Have a great weekend, friends!
