Organization Week: Our School Room Bookshelves

For those of you interested in our homeschool classroom, here are our slightly messy bookshelves!

I have a *slight* obsession with bookshelves!  Over the past five years, I've asked for bookshelves for my birthday presents and Christmas presents....and I now have quite a few!  Two of these bookcases are right by our school table -- making it very easy to keep everything we need close-at-hand.

Like the craft supply closet, I use a few different storage options.  Chocolate milk mix containers are fabulous for storing scissors.  They are also the perfect size for markers, dry erase markers, or colored pencils.

I load up a shower caddy with pencils, erasers, glue, and scissors to make a portable school supply box!  Then, we can take it upstairs or outside (or wherever we want to do school that day)!

In the other bookcase, I store curriculum we use every day, so I have easy access to it.  Curriculum worksheets and paper are stored in stacking traysYou can see our craft supply holder made from an old spice rack -- perfect for tiny items like beads!  I also keep a shelf of thematic books.  Of course, each of the girls has books in her room, but these are some of my favorites to go with certain themes!

We use learning baskets during our school time, so I have a small box filled with ideas for activities, and there is a box of file folder games from my teaching days!

What are your favorite ways to store school books and supplies?!!
