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.
