School Room Organization Inspiration!

I love January! Fresh year, fresh snow (at least in my imagination), a blank slate…

But the schoolroom. That’s sometimes a different story, isn’t it?! Unfortunately, our classrooms don’t magically become a fresh clean slate on January 1st!

But it is so nice to start the 2nd semester with an organized space, so I want to encourage and inspire you today, homeschool moms. Before you and your kids hit the books next week, take a day or two to reorganize and declutter your classroom! Here is the school room organization inspiration you need!

My daughters and I spent four hours cleaning up their school & toy room earlier this week. We’re not done but it looks so much better and we plan to finish the project this afternoon! (You can see photos and details about our first declutter session here.)

I’ve learned from experience that it’s well worth the time investment to organize the classroom even if we need to take a day or two off school to do it. We quickly gain that time back within the first week or so of being back in session simply because we’re not wasting time searching for needed items!

For tips on how to declutter your kids’ school spaces, check out these helpful articles:

More help:

  • If you need to declutter but are having a difficult time emotionally with letting go of some of your kids’ old things, read this post for encouragement and inspiration.
  • If you want to organize your home but are feeling overwhelmed and don’t know where to start, then check out my Get Organized challenge – I offer FREE personalized virtual organization tips on my blog!

Emotional encouragement for letting go.

I hope this article helps to inspire you, but remember that inspiration won’t organize our spaces for us, so let’s roll up our sleeves, grab some trash bags, and get to work!

And I’d love to hear: What’s one area you love starting fresh with in January?

Davonne Parks, Organizer

Every homeschool parent needs to learn how to manage their time wisely if they want to make the most of their homeschool days. As a fellow homeschool mom, Davonne Parks really gets that.

And, in order to become more efficient in her own life, Davonne learned how to manage her time so she could start being on time. She also spent months learning how to make her home go from chaos to clutter-free, and she’s spent years refining those techniques.

Then she took the tools and lessons she learned and she turned them into incredibly helpful, well written, and easy-to-read eBooks.

Davonne’s books include hilarious embarrassing stories, practical tips, inspirational quotes, gentle encouragement, and fabulous suggestions that any mom who’d like to be a little more organized or timely can benefit from.

For the Blog Awards, Davonne is generously giving away 20 copies of Chaos to Clutter-Free and 20 copies of 28 Days to Timeliness: Tips and Confessions from a Semi-Reformed Late Person!

Plus, anyone who subscribes to Davonne’s blog will receive a complimentary copy of her eBook 101 Time-Saving Tips for Busy Moms!

You can connect with Davonne Parks and get helpful encouragement and tips about organization, simplicity, and heart-filled motherhood on her blog, Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
