Organizing your homeschool

I was recently asked about organizing homeschool stuff. I don’t have pictures right now, but I can tell you a bit about how I organize our homeschool supplies.

In the kitchen, I have an armoir. It holds everyone’s current books in the top. And I am able to store craft supplies, paper, coloring books, stickers, etc. in the drawers below. It is so handy to have our books right beside the table, and it looks nice, too. You can see it in the background in the picture above. (Sorry about the grainy quality of the picture.)
I have a bookshelf in my living room that holds our Five in a Row books, KONOS manuals, dictionaries, and other reference books. It’s handy to have the unit study books in the living room. I have a separate bookshelf with the encyclopedias and Bible dictionaries and commentaries.
Upstairs, I have three bookshelves in the hallway. I keep one bookshelf full of classic fiction books, such as the Boxcar children and Little House books. The other two bookshelves hold books I have collected for various unit studies that we have completed and completed curriculum books that I am not ready to get rid of.
In my bedroom, I have a craft closet that I keep all of our messy craft items put far, far away from the little ones. I also keep some science supplies in there that are hazardous to the little ones.
That pretty much covers how I organize. Please ask and questions or post comments. We are in the midst of redoing flooring in two rooms this week, and I can’t take good pictures right now.
