There has been a recent post on this so you may want to look in the archives. I think there were some pretty good ideas that I took note of. Here are a few things that I do to help my mess:
1. I set aside one day a week (Friday is my day) to stay late, clean, plan, run copies, grade papers, etc...
2. I have a paper tray on my filing cabinet for items that need to be refiled. This is my worst organizational thing. When the tray gets full I have to file it.
3. Give each child a red pen. Anything that is not being taken as a grade book grade - grade together.
4. Bins, Tubs, and containers! Get lots of them and organize your stuff and label the tubs. I just organized my friends cabinets. Her craft cabinet was the biggest best improvement. I used shoe size boxes with lids.
Again the biggest thing for me that makes the most difference is the 1 day that I stay late and devote to cleaning, etc...
Good luck!
