Tips & Tricks: 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.

  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: Geoboards

A fun way to help kids get great hand-eye coordination isn’t with  Geoboards . I love that with these there are 4 boards included so you can use it with multiple students. The rubber bands are different colors and 2 different sizes. The pictures are fun, colorful and you get a bunch of them. My daughter really likes these. For some reason she thinks it’s so funny when the bands pop her. At first I just let her place the bands anywhere to get the idea of how to put them on. Then we started places them just on the white lines in the picture. She always wants to do more than one so I let her do as many pictures as she wants. I do wish there was a blanket picture so she could design her own things.
