31 Days of Homeschool Supplies: Desk Organization

I am so excited to kick off this 31 Days of Homeschool Supplies series!

For the next 31 days I will be posting each day about our favorite homeschool supplies that we use in our own homeschool. I am hoping to encourage you and give other homeschool mamma’s new tools to use, and help make their homeschool year a success.

Today I am sharing with you how we organize all of our supplies on our table. We use a desk carousel and it is perfect, everything is at our fingertips. Every supply has a place, so when clean happens it goes right back in the desk caddy.

 Some of the supplies we keep in the carousel are: pens, pencils, glue sticks, paper clips, binder clips, scissors, markers, erasers, pencil sharpener, and a ton more.  This sits in the middle of our table and it spins, so there is no need to get up to get supplies ALL THE TIME.

Homeschool Supplies Desk Caddy

I bought my desk carousel from Michaels Crafts on sale for about $22.00 and it was worth every penny. It is actually advertised as a craft carousel, but we use it for our school supplies instead.

I found a few other desk carousels that could work as well:

Another favorite desk organizer that we use is a simple pencil box full of all of our crayons. We used the crayon boxes, but the crayons just get crammed in those and break, so the simple pencil box works perfect for those.

    This is my project for these holidays!
    We have recently started homeschooling and have been spending some time working out what works for us.
    I have a very similar caddy that I have been using for scrapbooking but it hasn’t really been very useful for us. So my plan these holidays (it’s the middle of winter here in Australia) is to transfer from our current mish mash of containers to our Making Memories carousel.

      Aren’t these carousels the best? I love mine. When they go on sale again I am buying another one for my upstairs at home. Thank you for stopping by the 31 days series!
