How do you store your homeschool books?

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 

Dear Friends,

When you get a few homeschoolers together, the conversation usually goes to what curriculum do you use? Then, my next question is, “How do you organize it?”
I am an eclectic homeschooler. Our homeschool curriculum is chosen with care depending on the student’s skill level and interest level.
My children are hands on learners, and I have one who is dyslexic. So I cannot buy boxed curriculum sets. I have found materials that work for a variety of children, and I have had to find specific materials to help my son learn to read, spell, and write in a way that worked with his dyslexia.
My kitchen is the main homeschool area, but you can also find my children spread out around the house doing school work. They use textbooks, workbooks, and the computer. So there are a variety of things that are pulled out for each school day.
Part of their training has been to get materials out for one subject at a time and put those books away before getting out the next subject. I check them right before they put them away. I do not have piles of books and materials scattered all over my house. When it is time to do school, their materials are in one place.
We each have different set ups for organizing our school books. I have a cabinet with doors that close. I love this! Before I had the cabinet, I used heavy-duty plastic crates for each student.
Some of my friends use rolling carts with drawers to organize. Some use file cabinets. Some use plastic tubs with lids. There is no shortage of ways to store your books.
Tell me how you organize your books.
Today’s Zone Mission is to toss old cosmetics and do a 27 fling boogie. Focus on finding 27 things to give away.
Your Home Blessing for today is to declutter paper and magazines.
My menu plan for Thursday is taco soup and a salad.
Have a great day!
