Anyone with school-aged children knows how challenging it can be to make sure that they make it to and from school with all the necessary materials.

If you think things are hectic with one or two kids, just imagine having five kids and all their belongings to keep track of.

The mom’s trick is simple, effective, and just generally a great idea for any mom who is obsessed with organization.

Jessica-Louise told 9Honey, “We store it in our games/office room which is like a second lounge room in our house.”

There are only four cubbies because the two youngest children aren’t quite school-aged yet. Of course, that doesn’t mean they don’t have important things to store too!

Jessica-Louise first shared her invention on a closed parents group on Facebook.
