Organize your Schoolwork

I was visiting a good friend of mine last week when I saw something in her eating area that made the organizing freak inside of me have heart palpitations (good ones, mind you!). My friend has eight children, all of whom are homeschooled. She has persevered through a full Seton curriculum for the entire time! Her oldest daughter is now in college. I was so impressed by the organized way in which she keeps her children's schoolwork that I thought I would pass along pictures of it. She designed the case, her husband and daughter built it and then set it on some bookshelves that they already had. Each child has their own color folders with each subject neatly labeled on the spine of the folder with the corresponding books for that subject behind it. I love it. Hope this helps anyone who might be either pressed for space or organizationally challenged.

God Bless!


  1. WOW!!! How awesome is THAT?!?! Thank you so much for posting that picture. I NEED something like that! Very cool indeed!!

  2. Laura I was at my friend Dana's house last week. Her husband took two white bookcases and two pieces of plywood (?) for the top and made a "craft" table. It is so cool! I'll take a photo next time we're there and send it to you. Looks like something out of Pottery Barn. You're really inspiring me to go through all of my JUNK. I really like this system you showed us. God bless your friend and her homeschooling all those beautiful children with Seton. Love, Dolores
