Spring Organization

Surrounded by homeschool paraphernalia? Containing the inevitable clutter will help you save time, energy and money (if you have to replace things you cannot find). Here are some tips to help you manage your school materials.

Keep books you currently use within easy reach of your work area. Books that you no longer need or are "for later" can be stored away. Make a log of any books or resources that you borrow from the library or another homeschooling friend. Enter the title, author and date of return. Keep library books on a separate shelf for easy identification and to avoid mixing them up with your own materials.

You can store all of your stationery (pens, pencils, crayons, etc.) in tubs, pots, jam jars – just about anything! One of the best ways we've found is in a fishing tackle box or tool box. Find one that will accommodate all of the items you need. The little compartments and pull-out drawers are great for storing supplies and the box is a very neat and compact way of carrying things around.

Use a binder for your student's portfolio to separate the different subjects. You might also want to use notebooks for each subject. Color coded stickers help identify subjects or student work.

Arts and Crafts:
Transparent bins and boxes are very suitable for materials like paper, cards and paints, but you can also use an old chest of drawers or trunk; just make sure that the drawers are clearly labeled. Look for little chests of drawers or cabinets and use them to store loose and small left over items such as beads, buttons, and ribbons.

Finally, keeping a list of what you have and how much is left is always a good plan. That way, you can get more supplies before they run out!
