Alexandra – How I Stay Organized in Our Homeschool
Over the last 10 years of homeschooling, I have tried many different organization systems, from Homeschool Tracker to trying to set up a homeschool room in a basement! I have learned what works for us, and now that I only homeschool one child, it is even more simple.
Library books are an integral part of our homeschool — but how can a busy homeschool mom keep track of up to 100 books, CDs, and DVDs on loan from the library without losing them (or her mind)? Check out (pun intended!) the simple ways this not-so-organized homeschool mom manages library lending!

Debbie – How We Organize Our Homeschool Life

Andrea – Organizing Your Homeschool Space
This is just the bare bones of how I organize our space. You might not have a specific room, and that’s OK. The key is to keep organizing simple, consistent, and find a system which works for you and your family.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had people say to me something along the lines of “What? You homeschool AND you have 6 kids? You must be SOOOOO organized!” And, I laugh. Seriously. There are definitely some things I’ve learned over the years that do help me keep some of the day running along, but staying organized is like battling clutter… it’s a constant, recurring struggle that you occasionally feel like you’re winning, but mostly you wonder if you’re even making a dent it.
