What I’ve been organizing lately - A high schooler’s room

We are all too hard on young people to clean their rooms, when our own rooms need cleaning just as much in some cases.  Like their parents though, they don’t always know how, but enjoy the process once walked through it.  A few times per year I’m asked to help a child, high schooler, or college student to get organized.  Last month I helped a client's high school sophomore daughter organize her room for the coming school year.  We started with this classic paper dumping bin that is not unlike those I find in spades in offices.  We cleared it in a matter of minutes, keeping only a few photos and graded papers, and she reminded me to take the after shot!
