Hi everyone! Welcome back to another Tip Tuesday episode! Today I’m sharing how I keep all of our homeschool student materials organized. I’m also going to be showing some of our homeschool room as well as an update on how we’re using our workbox system.



So if you want to see how this mama of four keeps all of our materials organized and easy to access check out my Tip Tuesday: Homeschool Student Organization Tips here!

I get a lot of questions on our desk set up. And most of you know I’ve used some form of the workbox system developed by Sue Patrick for the past several years. I have to say that organizing our daily work has been a sanity saver for me. Put, the workbox system is a way to organize all of the daily school work for your student. You can use rolling carts, plastic crates, file folders, accordion files, or whatever else fits your needs.

Here is a close up of my Vika Alex Drawer Units $79.00. There are only 5 drawers in these, so right now we’re putting two subjects in a couple of the bottom drawers. You can read all about how I created this desk unit here: Our Ikea School Desks



Each of my kiddos also has an Expanding Acrylic Drawer Organizer in them with all of the supplies they’ll need. This keeps them from getting up a thousand times during class to get something!

  1. I wanted to double-check if is is actually the large size of clear containers you use for organizing the manipulative type things. I have the same shelving unit from Ikea, and the dimensions seem too large for the openings. Thank you for your videos. They are inspiring.
