Lesson plans, grading, supplies, papers, books, cd’s, workbooks, workspace, manipulatives, scheduling, etc. etc. etc. There’s a LOT to keep track of when it comes to keeping our homeschools running smoothly.
I bet you were wondering when we would ever get around to talking about homeschool organization specifically, lol. Well, that day is today; and rather than me doing the talking, I’m going to let a bunch of the experts chime in about how they do things. There are sure to be lots of ideas you can use from these wise ladies!
Each day there is a new organization hack to help calm the chaos.
Find links to all 31 days here: 31 Days of Organizing Tips.
I’ve noticed that homeschool organization deals with two main topics: 1) storage of all those books and supplies, and 2) planning. Well, whether it’s how to organize your bookshelves or which is the best planner out there, these articles have got you covered. You might want to pin this page so you can come back and peruse them all again and again!

Sometimes many heads are better than one! I think that’s true in the case of homeschool organization, because then you can pick and choose which ideas will work for you. Follow the blogs who have helped you the most, because those gals will most likely have even MORE information that jives with your outlook. :-)
Have fun organizing your homeschool storage and planning out a great year! HUGS!

I’m just starting to home school my 8th grader. I loved all your suggestions. I’m kind of a rehabilitated hoarder. Over the past 2 years I have donated and had many garage sales about 200 boxes. Its kind of scary to start this new home schooling business. I’m still very cluttered. Not the most motivated person ether. We will do anything for our kids and right now my daughter is not getting much out of school other than learning what school wants her to learn. That said, her school has implemented a new learning curve that is actually changing every few weeks because the program is not working. So home school, here we come!
I think I will be looking to your blog and just keep breathing. Its nice to see other moms being moms.
YOU CAN DO IT!! Yes, I am definitely a VERY imperfect person! But since that’s reality, there is no sense pretending otherwise, is there? :-) Thanks for your kind words!
