Although I’d rather blog about our awesome backyard right now (Myrtle Beach!!!) I must honor my word and finish my post about organizing and decorating.
We have homeschooled for 22 years, but I am down to my last kiddo so our homeschool storage needs are not too severe. But again, organization is key to making sure our homeschool day goes smoothly. Greg has his office set up in our master bedroom (more about that in a bit) so we homeschool on the dining room table. I have everything we need easy to access and yet easy to stow away again when we are finished.
We keep our homeschool supplies in overhead cabinets above our theater seating. The red bin in middle cabinet has our daily supplies, so we pull that out every day. Elijah puts his completed work in top of bin just to the left of it.
We already had these red IKEA bins with handles in our s&b classroom. I have all of Elijah’s daily schoolbooks in one and we put it on the seat next to him; and all of my books and teacher keys are in the other, next to where I sit. Also, my planbook (see it sitting on the chair on the left?) is stored in the seat storage of one of the dining room chairs when not in use. The red bins store perfectly behind our theater seats, so are easily accessible, yet completely out of sight when not using.
These are the main red IKEA bins I mentioned above all nicely stowed behind our theater seating.
Greg has organized his office in the master bedroom and it all stows in the bed when he’s not working.
Grand Design was the only 5th wheel manufacturer that had the combination of deep storage under the bed, a bed that lifted up high enough, as well as enough floor space for a big comfy office chair. Greg had this vision for his office from the beginning, so we had to find the right rig to fulfill his vision. His brilliance has paid off as now he has his own private office, which is necessary because we aren’t retired… yet! It only takes him about 5-10 minutes to set it all up and even less to stow it away when he’s done.
Finally, two things other things that are important to me are earrings (especially dangly ones!) and essential oils. I purchased these hanging jewelry holders from Amazon.com and I have them hanging in our master bedroom closet. Check it out….
On one side is where I store all of my earrings
The other side is designed to hang necklaces. PERFECT!
I use the same thing to hold my oils. I only use the pockets side and I like this solution because it keeps my oils all upright, yet doesn’t take up very much space at all. When in transport I don’t have to worry about anything spilling.
As for decorations, today I only want to share our latest find:
That looks just like my Popeye! I do have to stow this when in transport, but I just throw it in the drawer with my dish towels. Too cute!
That’s all I will bore you with. I could post pictures of my bathroom storage, more dishes, even my junk drawer! But that’s just too crazy… Who in the world organizes their junk drawer?!?! ☺️
So over and out from our backyard to yours. Oh, did I mention that we are in Myrtle Beach right now?
Our backyard today is the beach!!!
Happy Trails & Sunny Sails
