The Battle for Homeschool Organization
My Top Five Tips to Help You Get Organized!
I remember when I first started to homeschool. I felt buried by the amount of “stuff” that came with our decision to homeschool. Papers, books, multi-part curriculum, supplies, & more! There was stuff everywhere. Overwhelmed didn’t even begin to describe the emotions that were stirring around in my mind. I knew I needed help. However, back when I started homeschooling, the only thing you found when you searched for “homeschool organization” was pictures of pretty homeschool rooms with all their “stuff” put away. This didn’t help me one bit. I knew I needed systems in place to get my “stuff” to look pretty.
Really, “pretty” should never be the goal. I just wanted all my homeschool curriculum under control. I didn’t need fancy. So my quest began…
For years I tried different ways to get organized until I finally figured out a combination of several different systems that seemed to work for all our various learning stages and styles. I don’t use every system every year or with every child. However, one system I love is my crate system. I have a very unique way of organizing using a crate. Basically, I create weekly files of work for each child and put it all in one crate. It’s truly revolutionized my homeschool.
Last year, I finally decided to put all my systems and best tips for homeschool organization into a course. My heart is to help families experience more joy in their homeschooling and ditch the buried feeling we so often feel when things are in disarray.
In all my years of homeschooling and helping others get organized both in their home and in their homeschool, I’ve come up with these 5 tips that will help you get organized…
