Tackling Our Homeschool Cabinet

We have an armoire cabinet filled with homeschool supplies.  Everything from paper, notebooks, pens, pencils, workbooks, markers, erasers...etc.  During the back-to-school season, CVS and Walgreens offered great deals on school supplies.  When I got home, I stuffed everything on the shelves.  

When we do craft projects, I meander to the garage and bring in some supplies we need to complete the task.  Afterward, I leave the leftover supplies in the cabinet.  

My husband likes to declutter his computer desk.  His idea of decluttering his space, is to put everything in my homeschool cabinet.  So there are also computer keyboards and cable wires stuffed on the shelves.  

Needless to say, our cabinet has become a catch-all.  

I decided to tackle it.

Here's what it looked like before:

And here's what it looks like now.

Phew!  It took me about 3 hours to sort through everything.  Normally it wouldn't have taken so long, but the kids wanted to "help" me do everything.  And we got sidetracked and looked through old pictures and old photo albums.  Anyways, it got done and it feels great!

Although, today Sissy went looking for the crayons and said, "Mommy, you organized everything, now I can't find anything!"...gotta love it!
