No matter how organized I am, I always find myself looking for new and more effective ways to organize our homeschool room and supplies. I am excited to be participating in the 30 Days to Homeschool Organization Blog Party so that I can learn more alongside many other homeschool moms!
Here is a tour of our homeschool room! We have a large table in the center of the room with a Recollections Storage Desktop Carousel. I absolutely love this carousel as it makes for easy access to daily supplies.
This side table stores various supplies that are awkward shaped. On top is a Creative Grab N’ Go Rack System, and it is full of washi tape, sequins and miscellaneous small crafting and school supplies. I use an inexpensive magazine file holder to store cardstock, sorted by colour and I also have various small pieces of cardstock in the box next to the magazine file. A little wooden box stores small projects that we are currently working on.
I absolutely love our 10-drawer organizer cart. I bought this one at Michaels, but you can also find them on Amazon. It contains glue, crafting markers and pencils, stamp pads, more crafting paper and stickers. The drawers are great for organizing a wide variety of items with very easy access. I also have a couple drawers available for storage of the current projects that my children are working on. I store the wipes, tape runner, dot-a-dot markers and some stamp sets on top.
This cabinet is organized using clear Dollar Store containers so that we can see what is in each container. Items such as felt, clothes pins, foam shapes, crafting feathers, twine and yarn are stored here.
Our paint supplies are stored in a basket in a closet off of the schoolroom. The paint trays and painting aprons are also stored next to the basket so we can grab it all at once when we want to paint.
We use a Kallax shelfing unit from Ikea to organize our curriculum and books.
With a very busy two year old who is excellent at getting into almost everything, we will be using our kitchen table the majority of the time this year as it will be easier to keep tabs on my youngest. Each evening I will go downstairs with a small storage container to bring up any required supplies for the next day. For this year, any of our 2017-2018 curriculum is being stored upstairs in a living room bookshelf for easier access when working at the kitchen table.
Organization of our homeschool room is a work-in-progress at all times. This 30 Days to Homeschool Organization blog party is a great way for all of us to learn new tips! Click here to join the party!
