Gearing Up. . .

Today is devoted to getting my house, school stuff in particular, organized! I've had "stacks" taking over way too many corners of my home and with the hectic pace of summer, it's starting to drive me batty! Have you heard the saying "chaos in your environment equals chaos in your life" - well, that's my theory anyway, so I've got to get a handle on the chaos, lol!

I'll probably have a better chance of accomplishing that goal, if I get off this computer :) so I just wanted to pop in and share of a couple binders I use to help me organize the "paper monster" of school. One is our "Our Home Education Resource Notebook" - in this one I keep just about anything related to homeschool - ideas I come across, assessment forms, scheduling tips, high-school helps, basically anything I need or want to keep for reference. The second notebook is exclusive to "literacy". I have one dd who has had significant struggles with learning and this notebook has helped me organize anything and everything to do with her areas of struggle. I jazz up the covers and spines with scrapbooking stuff, and add "tabs" as needed.

You can use binder to help organize your school and life in any creative way you imagine! I also use this binder method for insurance forms and bank statements and even have one just for crock pot recipes.

If you have a favorite method or tip that helps you stay organized, please share a link to pic's on your blog! I love to see pictures!

As always, Tina, your binders are so lovely! I'm gearing up to make some new ones for new stuff, too. Love the pictures. :)
