Inexpensive Homeschool Organizing Ideas
(Belcamp, MD, U.S.A.)
Homeschool newbie reveals three inexpensive and creative homeschool organizing ideas. Learn how she went from overwhelmed to organized!
We just began homeschooling last fall and I must say I was overwhelmed with what is available to us!
First, to organize arts & crafts I bought a 3-tiered rolling cart, each tier is a different primary color. We divided up the supplies by "medium" (paint, crayons, etc.), "bases" (paper, etc.) & "embellishments" (pipe cleaners, glitter, etc.). This works very well and although it's not the neatest sometimes, we know where everything is.
Second, my binder! I live by this! It's a 3", ring binder. In here I keep days homeschooled, notes, subject material, ideas for all topics, websites to investigate, forms I use and important papers. All divided nicely.
Third, I keep a "Favorites" file on my computer, divided by subject matter, of all the homeschool websites we use, or will use. It's easy to navigate with the sites placed in their appropriate subject!
