For some reason, my commenting system failed. Big time.
So, I’m sharing all the comments that disappeared yesterday.
Some of them are really going to simplify my life. Thanks so much for participating in my first Homeschool Village Playdate!
Okay, here they are…in no particular order. (I hope I got them all, if not, please leave another organization tip!)
Holy cow, I am all kinds of in love with that laundry tip. I think you’ve just revolutionized my system!
Um, okay I have a lunch with little ones tip. Don’t give them individual plates. Provide a tray of different foods and let them pick what they want from it. Less clean up, less fuss.
My recent post My attention is all kinds of deficit
I love my white board. It has changed the way I do school. I got a huge one at the office supply and framed it with trim from the hardware store. I have an IKEA shelf below it that holds all of our supplies and teacher manuals. Everything is in one place and I can write lists, teach, leave instructions….all on the board. It’s the best thing I ever did. Lisa~
My recent post The Anniversary Party- Part II
HI there….great blog, thanks for hosting the playdate today at HSV! My BIGGEST tip on organization is LISTS…LISTS and more LISTS…I have 4 notebooks going…homeschooling, party planning, everyday life stuff and My inspirations! The only way I can function!
For workbooks and soft-bound textbooks, I use magazine holders to put them in. I have one for each kid and one for instructor’s guides and answer keys for me. When it’s time for handwriting, spelling, math, phonics, etc., I just pull out each kid’s magazine file. When we’re done, it’s much easier to put this one thing back on the shelf, and it makes it easier to find everyone’s books.

I never thought to do that with my sheets!
I need the homeschool organization tips too! I get most of mine from Samantha Kelley (www.thekelleyeight.com).
We really like the workboxes idea for homeschooling, but don’t have room for actual boxes. So we use the bottom drawer of our office file cabinet and those expandable hanging files. The office area is right outside the homeschool room so it works great and doesn’t take up anymore space.
We have a small house so I am always having to come up with new ways to store our stuff. One problem we were having was DVD and Wii game cases. They took up so much space and the discs never seemed to make it back in them. So I bought zipper media cases that are used to store music CDs. We threw out all of the plastic cases and now have easy to flip through cases that hold all of our DVDs and games.
sometimes after washing breakfast dishes i just set them on the counter– ready for lunch– instead of putting them away. Also as for laundry my kids hang up all the shirts on hangers then i put them in the closet…
OO I like my binders and My hanging organizer!
Donna young.org is also one of my favorites!
There is still time…Add another organization tip!
Blessings to you! You are loved!
