Book Purge
Every year your kid is going to get a lot of new books to read. Before the school year starts, try doing a shelf purge so everything can fit. Decide which books are fine to donate, sell (if they are expensive science or math textbooks), or they want to keep.

If they feel like they want to read a book again in the next year, keep it on the shelf near the bed. If not, find some extra storage around the home to store them for later.
