Gather your items together and start by grouping like items with like items. Sort and determine category names for your items. By keeping like items together in the appropriate labeled albums, and/or containers, they are always retrievable by your labeled category. This also allows for any items coming into the home that pertain to any of those categories to now have a place to be stored, eliminating clutter and keeping those items and your home organized.

Although it may be tempting to just leave all the remnants of this current school year in complete disarray in their bedroom, and begin the lazy days of summer, now is a perfect time to organize.
