So you’ve taken a big step—you have decided to homeschool. Or maybe you’ve been homeschooling for years and now…
What in the world do you do about Homeschool Organization?
Never fear! Here’s some ideas to keep you sane!
1) Colorful Drawer Cart
This colorful drawer cart was a saving grace during our elementary and junior high years! It’ was perfect to organize by subjects and I would store most of what my son, Sam, needed for his studies in these drawers.
2) Plastic Tubs
I loved putting Sam’s books and papers in these tubs and then I hung them on a decorated board on the wall.
3) Dollar Tree Boxes
These canvas boxes just couldn’t be beat! I stored Sam’s math supplies, vocabulary cards, and more in these babies. I use them for our crafts organization in our cabinets, too!
4) Dollar Tree Cups
I bought these cups at Dollar Tree and we store pens, pencils, paintbrushes, markers, etc in them. My husband drilled holes in the desk and they are the perfect way to keep all these important tools organized and in reach.
5) File Cabinet
I bought two wooden filing cabinets at a thrift store and that’s where I store Sam’s old work and important papers.
6) Built-in Bookshelf and Desk
Everything was built by my husband! The long bookshelf is amazing to store our books and when he was little, we stored his toys on the lower shelves. The desk was built with melamine and works for all our needs whether school, my office work, or crafting.
7) Restored Furniture
I took these thrift-store finds and painted them a bright cheery yellow. The cabinet is a Pottery Barn find and it houses a stereo and our exercise paraphernalia. It used to have a TV but I got rid of it after we used more videos on the computer than anything.
I hope that gives you some ideas of a schoolroom! The functions have changed over the years but each of these organizing tools are still very useful!
