Great Idea - "Crap Baskets" during the day as you find things, place them in the basket. When the kids are on their way upstairs, they take their "crap basket" up to their rooms to be put away. Saves you climbing up and down the stairs all day long.

An Organized Family Mount mail boxes, file holders, or matching baskets to a wall near the back door. Assign each family member a container and fill with essential items. Train kids to drop mail and important papers in the appropriate containers. Leave useful items for children -- such as lunch money, signed documents, or umbrellas -- and encourage them to check their container before leaving for the day.
