We had some construction at our house this year, and as such my very well-organized school room suffered a massive blow. It now looks like a crazy zone with stuff everywhere, piles, and haphazard bookcases. I lost valuable wall space as a double door was added in the back (in a room with many windows - lovely for light, but hard for storage) and had to swap out bookcases. This caused organizational death to all of my HS materials. I had had everything set up for the year, and after the construction I just threw things onto bookcases (and spent hours searching for stuff all spring). It's really bad.
I'm now looking to re-vamp the space before we start the next academic year. I'm wondering what are some favorite organizational tools, bookcases, storage units, etc., for fellow homeschoolers. Here's what I'm considering so far:
- we don't have a closet, so I need something like the Trofast system
- to better sort subjects, etc., I'm looking at an Expedit bookcase or two
- regular bookcases for school work (not the ones I had before) - they aren't deep enough and stuff falls over
- storage cabinets/bookcase combo (from Ikea) - things just get lost and I end up buying stuff I already have
Any ideas and/or photos and/or links are warmly welcomed!! =)
