Keeping Organized

Between homeschool, pet care, house cleaning and cooking it’s important to stay organized. How do I organize my homeschool curriculum? Well the main bulk is in a big container, the items I use multiple times a week I have in a utility tote, books I actually store in old Pull-Up boxes and for art supplies, flash cards and little games I keep them in a rolling container.



As for our pets and house cleaning, I have an amazing planner. What I love about this planner is that I was able to customize everything. The covers, layout and even add list like birthdays were all customized to my liking. The birthday list is awesome because the dates are already printed on that day and even lets me know how old people are. I write in my cleaning schedule, which is pretty simple. I clean 1 room a day, dishes everyday and laundry 4 times a week. I write in what days my pets get their baths or need something health wise. 


Cooking is probably the part I hate most. Having to figure out what we’ll eat 3 times a day... everyday! But I think I’ve come up with a great solution. I have a little note pad and at the beginning of the week I make a list of 6 breakfasts, lunches and dinners. 1 day is all leftovers. At each meal time I give my daughter the choice of what’s on the list and make whatever she has chosen. Sometimes I have her pick in advance if it’s something that will take a while to prepare. 



This are all the things I do to help me stay organized. Hopefully, some of these tips will work for you. I’m also joining in with Timberdoodle’s Home Organization Blog Hop so be sure to check out what others are doing for some more great ideas.

  1. Such good tips! I've found it's definitely a learning process by trial and error as you go along. It's great to pick up ideas from others who share their methods!

  2. I love having everything I need for the week in one place. We got a huge fabric tote box and I started putting all the weekly school stuff for my littles in that and then pull out what I need each day.

Review: Djeco So Pop

Our daughter loves arts and crafts. Djeco So Pop is another amazing art project that she had a blast doing. I got it through Timberdoodle and it also comes with their PreK Curriculum Kit. The kit comes with 4 different projects and all the pieces you need to put them together. This particular kit came with little envelopes for each project that had sequence in them so I popped out each item for the projects and put them in the envelopes so everything would be ready go when do each one. Djeco also give you a glue stick so you can glue the pieces on the boards but I have found the glue they provide isn’t that great so instead we use hot glue.


What I really like about Djeco art kits is that they give you a little booklet that shows where to put each piece on the boards. It shows you through pictures so if your child doesn’t read yet it’s not a problem. Easy for a young kid to follow and great for the parent because you don’t have to read a lengthy instruction book. 

I’d definitely recomm…
