How We Fit a Homework Zone into Our Small Home!
You might already know that we have our current home up for sale in hope of finding a larger one. But until then, we still have to function with our family of 5 in our small home. One challenge has been not having certain spaces just for homework. And with back to school right around the corner, I knew it was time to get a homework zone organized ASAP. So when I was invited to do some back to school shopping on OfficeDepot.com, I was excited to see what they had that could help. Here’s what I came up with…
Our Small Home Homework Zone Solution
Since we don’t have a separate office in our home or extra space in the kids’ bedrooms, my kids do their homework right at our dining room table. It’s also where we do any crafts and activities. So this is what it often looks like…
There’s always stuff on the table – in the way when we need to sit down to eat. And then stuff inevitably migrates up onto the pass-through bar above, too. I needed to come up with a way to keep their homework supplies handy but off the table. Queue Office Depot!
I checked out Office Depot’s Gear Up for School section online to see if I could find a solution. I loved how the School Supplies section was organized. And I was impressed to see that Office Depot carries so much great back to school gear!
When I saw these Urbio Magnetic Wall Containers, I knew they were just the ticket to our homework zone dilemma. Here’s how they look in our new and improved homework zone…
Now all of the homework supplies are up on the wall, off the table, but ready to use. I love it! Plus I ordered some new back to school supplies from OfficeDepot.com to fill it, too. Some nice quality TUL® Mechanical Pencil, some of those new Sharpie Clear View® Highlighters, some colorful Pilot G-2 Pens, and some clever little Swingline® Mini Flag Staplers.
