Oh, the joys of fall.
Back to school being my favorite!
I love it when our homeschool days start up again.
While I enjoy the carefree days of summer, there is something about the crisp beginning of a brand new school year.
But back to school is not all rosy.
The start can be hectic which leads me to this reader question.
What are your favorite back to school supplies?
Comment on this post. I would love to know!
I will kick it off by sharing my favorite 5.
I have five school supplies that have changed my life.
Check them out because I know they can make back to school a whole lot easier.
#1: Perch by Urbio
I cannot imagine surviving the school year without this storage solution.
There are so many options to store school supplies.
We keep our homeschool area uncluttered by keeping pencils, crayons, and other supplies contained in our Perch.
This organizing station would also work great for a homeschool station.
This is the basic hanging piece.
This is my favorite piece for pencils.
All of the pieces are magnetic and interchangeable.
This is more of a resource than a supply, but it is still one of my top back to school go tos.
Kim from Not Consumed has this all set up for you and it is amazing!
You receive recipes, printables, freezer bag labels and instructions.
Then, you spend an afternoon putting all the breakfast ideas together.
And your mornings are instantly simplified!
The DIY Breakfast Station allows kids to make their own breakfast with ease.
Less mess, less chaos, and a much easier morning are yours with the DIY Breakfast Station.
#3: Locker Bins
These locker bins from the Land of Nod are perfect for containing just about anything.
We use them for daily work, books, and workbooks.
#4: Durable Binders
Not all binders are created equal.
I have certainly learned over the years that we need 2-inch durable binders to hold all of our schoolwork.
The durable binders do not break, do not open up when dropped, and open with ease when using daily.
The crate system is amazing for homeschool, but can be used to hold your kid’s school work and important papers throughout the year.
Here is an idea from Alicia at Your Vibrant Family.
For homeschool, we use the crate system to plan out our entire year.
It is amazing!
The crate system has helped me to stay on top of our work, get more done, and not lose steam as the year progresses!
