101 in 1001: Organize my homeschool/art/etc supplies

Tagged Under : , , ,

I am SO excited to have this project done from my 101 in 1001 list. I have had it mostly done for a few weeks, but it wasn’t all the way done yet. Well, last night I finished it up. I can’t tell you how nice it is to know where everything is and be able to find it quickly when we need it or for a spur of the moment project. Before it was all in bags and boxes and I had to dig through stuff and couldn’t find it. But now, everything has a home and I can find it all so easily. Special shout out to Annalies who helped me with the majority of this project, partially because she loves me and partially because it was all over the bed she needed to sleep on when she visited. Ha!

So now, without further ado – pictures!

I swear I took a before picture but I can’t find it now. If I find it later, I’ll come back and add it to this post so you can see how bad it was.

This hutch is upstairs. It mainly holds paper and containers. Not pictured, the bottom because it’s empty, though Dominic likes to hide in the bottom or put toys in there or hide toys in there. (Like his fire truck that I was looking for FOREVER and then one day he’s just like here’s the fire truck. It was in the hutch. Apparently I don’t think like a 2-year-old because I never looked there lol.

This dresser is packed full! I put the butterfly runner up there to give it a bit of extra color (I got that at a friend’s baby shower and it doesn’t get used nearly often enough – it’s beautiful and now this way it gets way more use). And of course, up there is our Tardis poster. Over on the side too you can see our pom-pom bucket and our crayon bucket.IMG_1692

The top drawer is mostly my stuff more than the kids’, it includes my craft projects as well as envelopes. Not pictured over on the side is our box of 1000 craft sticks haha. It’s a lot.

IMG_1693The second drawer from the top mainly has our Play-Doh, stickers, stamps, and tubes. And yes, if you were wondering, I save anything that could be used in an art project later, which is why I have so many tubes (believe it or not there was more at one point) and so many egg cartons. Not pictured, our pipe cleaners.

Mainly paints of various kinds, paper plates, and various kinds of tape.

IMG_1695This bottom drawer is the activity drawer. Activity books, ideas I’ve cut out of magazines, things we’ve made that can be used in activities (like the rainbow box), etc. A catch-all for a lot of things. I have a few of these upstairs in Dominic’s desk (where I also keep the coloring books and magazines that we can cut out of) and periodically change them out, giving him access to new activities, but not giving him access to all the things as once.
