To those basking in the delight of summer, I certainly don't want to rush the season along, but... Retailers are starting to set the Back to School Displays and my heartrate is starting to quicken. No, it's not nightmares of forgetting my locker combination or that end of the semester is near and I haven't gone to a single class (though I still have those), it's because I get so excited over school supplies. I don't need them, but brightly colored folders, pencils, pens, erasers... they seem to be calling my name.
While I manage to limit my purchases of the 64-pack of Crayola Crayons, the Back to School season completely inspires me to get organized (again). Instead of construction paper and bookbags, I turn to fun stationery and stylish desk organizers.
Below are some inspiring photos to maintain my dedication to organization and reducing clutter in our house.
The Mothership of Home Organization- The Container Store. In fact, I have an order to pick up there today for my Pantry Project (more to come on that). Try this time-saver and save 15% when you order online and pickup at the store with code click15offer.
Three photos above from The Container Store
The container store may have a little competition from Organize.com. Where else can you get cleaning products, closet items, aprons, personalized stationery, storage, and more!?

And of course, we can't forget Ikea. A great source for inexpensive storage finds as well as business organization solutions.
The print (and online "print") world features loads of inspiring photos.
Ahh, Real Simple, the Queen of beautifully styled organization photos. Would they sell as many magazines without the serene, yet colorful, covers?
