I know, I’ve been there, I’ve done it, too - spent a lot of time creating systems and solutions to make the upcoming school year more manageable. The goal is always the same - save time, save energy during the hectic school year. The solution, however, often falls apart too soon. This is why I’ve spent YEARS, yes YEARS, perfecting the Education Friday Workbox®. This is why it exists as its own product with an entire week-long camp devoted to it. Being a teacher is unlike any other career. The same passion you put into your role as teacher I’ve put into making the Education Friday Workbox® a solution that will save you time, lessen your mental load and keep you organized the entire school year.
The Education Friday Workbox® helps you make the invisible administrative work you do visible so you can streamline, automate or eliminate it. There is so much you can’t control in the classroom. Focusing on the things you can control will allow you to save yourself mental and emotional capacity. As a former teacher it was important for me to create a system that will give you back TIME. You need an assistant but we know that is not likely in the budget. The Education Friday Workbox® was designed to be your administrative assistant in a box and cater to the administrative role we all play as teachers.
You are a REALLY good teacher. And I know you are doing #allthethings. You are trying to be a good homeowner, member of the family, caregiver, active in your community…the list goes on and on!
The administrative tasks that you have at school are necessary but don’t let them overwhelm you or steal your TIME. Reduce the amount of time you spend on administrative tasks with Education Camp and the Education Friday Workbox®.
The Education Friday Workbox® allows you to:
Give yourself the gift of a like-minded community and resources available to help you streamline the things that are within your control. Education Camp with the Education Friday Workbox® includes:
Save yourself over 100 hours per school year by preparing your future self for success and thinking through the next school year.

The Friday Workbox® is a comprehensive organizational solution with everything you need to physically organize your papers and to learn all the skills of being proactive and productive in your work. It is a physical product that stores ideas and assignments to keep your desk free of paper. It also includes online lessons to teach the skill of organizing. Using this external brain ensures that you are spending your time proactively engaged with your work, rather than reacting to the latest crisis. You will learn to track all of your active work, proactively plan your week, and increase the strength of your organizational skills.
If you are familiar with the Sunday Basket® System for managing household paper, it will be easy to master your Friday Workbox®. The two share some similarities such as focusing on actionable papers and the use of the 1.0 and 2.0 Slash Pockets. However, Friday Workboxes® are focused on work or passion projects.
Organize 365® believes that “work,” paid or unpaid, takes on many different forms, which is why the Friday Workbox® is designed to be customizable to your specific role. The system contains a combination of physical and digital learning tools to help you create lasting organizational success in your workspace.
You are probably wondering how the Friday Workbox® differs from the Sunday Basket®. When you think of the Sunday Basket®, what pops into your head? Bills, letters, medical information, finances, and everything in between, right?
The Sunday Basket® is built for organizing the home. Actionable household paperwork is kept in your Sunday Basket®.
The Friday Workbox®, on the other hand, is all about organizing your work!
All week long, the Friday Workbox® will capture your actionable papers, to-dos, and other incoming paperwork. Then, at the end of the week, it is time to process, make decisions, and plan your upcoming week. In most settings, 90 minutes is the ideal time. The end of the week is most effectively spent reviewing and planning. Most people are not highly focused at the end of the week, but it is the perfect time to review the current week and prepare for the next week.
The Friday Workbox® generally requires at least one hour of attention every week. For every minute you spend planning, you GAIN five in execution. This means, one hour spent planning and preparing at the end of the week can save you five hours next week.
In order to provide education on the Friday Workbox® system, your purchase also includes a dashboard experience with access to multiple training videos. The training videos include information on adapting the Education Friday Workbox® for varied education positions.
We also welcome any Friday Workbox® System purchasers to join us in our exclusive online community for connection and encouragement.
Education Workbox Certified Organizers are also available to contact through our Directory.
The Friday Workbox® System is a one-time investment and includes everything listed above.
Many people who purchase the Education Friday Workbox® choose to add on Education Camp or Planning Day.
