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 right 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.

Getting Started & Preschool Schedule

I noticed a lot of people on Facebook where asking about how to get started with homeschooling and what people do for their toddlers. In Texas, it’s very simple. You just send a letter or email to your child’s school letting them know you are withdrawing your child with the intent of homeschooling. Then begin homeschooling. Every state has different laws of what needs to be taught and what you need to do as far as testing. This website is very helpful for information by state. You’ll need to get a curriculum that you feel well be a good fit for your family. There are religious and secular (non-religious) curriculums. I have chosen Timberdoodle. They are a hands-on curriculum, offer both religious and non, you can customize your kits and they even have a scheduler to help you know what needs to get done each week.


Here is what we do for preschool. I did these myself; it’s not Timberdoodle.
