Tips to Get Organized
contributed by HAPO members
TIP #1 STORAGE IDEA
Did you know that 5-gallon water-cooler jugs make for great transparent, upright storage? Use a hand saw or small knife to slice off the spout section. Perfect for bulky, outdoor gear!
TIP #2 TEACH KIDS TO FOLD
Teach kids to fold using a trick from department stores. Take a rectangular piece of cardboard, line it up behind a shirt, and fold the sleeves inward. Slide out the cardboard to finish the fold!
