Taming Desktop Clutter with September Desktop Freebie

Two days into the school year and I already couldn't see the surface of my desk.

How can I possibly be drowning in paperwork so soon?  I've got the Erin Condren life planner.  My plans are meticulously typed into www.planbook.com. (Both of which I LOVE by the way.) However, I still have about 6-7 post-its stuck all over my desk reminding me of IEP meetings, field trip permission slips and phone calls to make. What gives!

I created this September desk mat to help tame the chaos that is my teacher desk and I'm sharing it here in hopes that it might help one more busy teacher be a little more organized this school year.




Here is how I used this mat in my classroom:

Whenever I had a "note-to-self" moment that didn't fit in my other planners, I wrote it either on my September Think Mat or on a small post-it to attach to the mat.  Just placing all these random reminders in one spot seemed to keep my desk looking less cluttered.


Want to give this organization strategy a try for free?  Click Here to grab this freebie from my TpT store.  Remember to follow me so that you can be updated when I post the other monthly think mats that I've got in the works!




I hope this desktop think mat brings some cheer to your classroom this month!  Stay tuned, I plan to post the other 9 that I am working on SOON!

Happy Teaching
