Successful Homeschool Organizing
Tips and Help!

Homeschooling multiple children? Can’t seem to get your home in order? Need some homeschool organizing tips to help you keep track of your family, your kids’ schoolwork and increase your productivity?

For most of us, organization is something we need to work at constantly.

Many home educators struggle with getting everything done during the day – laundry, housework, meals, errands and homeschooling, so don’t ever think you are alone in your plight!

A few months ago, a fellow homeschooling friend and I were chatting about the keeping-house problem and she mentioned she had "furr" growing on the ledges around her home.

I, of course, knew exactly what she meant, started laughing and suddenly felt relieved that there was another person in this world who also had mounds of dust in unseen places... and the guts to admit it!

So how do you keep everything organized, your homeschool running smoothly and your house clean?

Fellow Home Educators to the Rescue!

Recently we hosted a Homeschool Organizing Contest to help you get more organized in your home school. Fellow home educators shared their best homeschool organizing secrets, tips and advice and for a chance to win one of four fabulous prizes provided by Busy Body Book Organizers!
