Binder Filling

I went over a few things you should add to your binder. Here’s a couple of my favorite products to use. Start with a large binder, like 3 inches! You can fill this up in no time!

These zipper pockets have 3 holes to place in a 3 ring binder. You can put flashcards, or game pieces, project materials, etc… in these things. Get creative!

Dividers! I love colorful dividers with pockets! I like these because you can write on them. I am constantly reorganizing crap and changing stuff. So I like my materials to be adaptable!

This is a 3 hole punch. Instead of buying a heavy-duty one, you can buy one that hangs out in your 3 ring binder. I have both. I find this one handy when I’m only punching a couple of pages at a time. It’s quicker than getting the bigger one out!

These are little pockets with a snap on the front. These can be helpful when you have several papers you’d like to keep together for a project or something.

Clear sheet protectors…These are great for protecting important documents. If you’re a homeschool mom, who has to document crap, make sure you get the evidence you’ve done what has been asked of you and then make copies! Store copies somewhere else…

Just some good old blank notebook paper. It’s great to take notes, logs, and for scrap paper.

Kids Desks For Homeschooling

Find something that works for your space. I've included a few folding desks and even some that can hang on a wall and fold up! Nice right?

I hope that you find these tips helpful. We have tried a couple of new programs this year that just didn’t work out very well.

If the kids are crying, complaining, upset, and you are about to pull out all of your hair, just stop doing it.

Find something else, something that does not drive everyone mad. Even if you have made a commitment. The goal is to learn, not to master skills. We are not computers that need to be spitting out information; we are humans who should embrace each other and the time we have together.

Do you have another organizing tip you want to share?

  1. Good advice for small business owners too! I would say an external hard drive to back up the cloud and have local transportable storage. I love the pictures idea of records. Thanks for posting. I came to your site via Twitter by the way.

    1. Thanks! An external hard drive is a great idea. I didn’t think of that. I like the idea of using a cloud too though, just because an external drive could be misplaced. There is nothing wrong with having backups of backups! Thank you for visiting from Twitter. It is always nice to meet new people!
