I figured while I am listing all my product recommendations, I might as well include an easy reference list for basic school supplies to help you make sure you have everything covered, as well as a few additional fun finds.

For all the parents finding themselves becoming home teaching assistants this fall, I highly recommend you look into these items as well:

Okay! So with all that tech stuff out of the way, Let’s move onto organization. Although our home learning space is designed to be portable, I still felt it was important to keep everything organized, consistent, and functional. I was pleasantly surprised with how many things I could store in the table cart. I love that all of my daughter’s school workbooks, notebooks, and materials are easily accessible, literally right under her nose! This picture is pretty self-explanatory, but I wanted to share some additional details for the organizers I used and how everything is arranged.

Magnets! I took advantage of the magnetic surface of the cart to add additional organizers.
School Subjects: In the upper cart, I store her Math and English Language Arts workbooks, notebooks, and folders. Also in this bin are art materials, including construction paper, printing paper, and writing/drawing utensils. In the lower cart, I put her Chinese materials, a whiteboard, and miscellaneous items like a pencil box and her charger cords. Then, on the side pocket, I put her Science and Social Studies materials, as well as small items, such as playing cards and dice.
Hello and Welcome!
My name is Erin, and I started this blog to share resources and insights with other fellow parents. My teaching background is injected into most things I do with my 2 kids, "Jie Jie" and "Didi" (older sister and little brother in Chinese). I'm hoping to find some work-life balance as I juggle my roles of mommy, wifey, friend, and budding entrepreneur. Thank you for joining me on this journey!
