Last week I had had enough. I mean it, I was so overwhelmed with the mess in my house. Mess, everywhere. A huge part of the unorganized chaos was our school supplies. Earlier in the year I had designated our official pantry as our homeschool closet and it took about five months before I realized it just wasn't working out for us. Supplies were getting thrown in but not organized. Art supplies were spilling out everywhere. It was just a t-total disaster. And at the same time so was my food cabinet.
So... I had the bright idea to switch the two and put the the food were it should go and utilize the kitchen cabinets as a smaller more compacted place for our school supplies.
Here we go.....
Yes that was before....YIKES! I told you it was a mess...what, you didn't believe me?
So I pulled everything out and started re-organizing it. About two and half hours letter I was done and it was so much better!!!
Who knew that a little time and a lot of elbow grease could actually turn a mess into a functional space? I think I had forgotten how having things organized makes me feel. Or maybe I never forgot, but the fact of having five kids, and twins that are into everything, makes it pretty much impossible.
We'll see how long this last. :P
Okay, homeschool moms, for those of you without homeschool rooms, how do you store your school supplies?
