How to Easily Organize Your Homeschool Curriculum
The number of books in the school area (and the rest of the house) looks like an exhibit hall at a homeschool convention. Not only are there books, there are maps, timelines, educational games, math manipulatives, reference books, papers of all kinds, and a whole lot more.
Homeschooling for several years results in a major pile of books and every other type of educational material. It can all become a mess in a hurry.
Trying to find what a child needs for school every day is a hassle for mom. The child can easily take advantage of those moments to find something more fun to do other than schoolwork, which results in more frustration for mom.

Step one: Locate all the books
It’s amazing where books can hide. They manage to find their way under beds, in the corners of a room, and even under the seats in a vehicle.
Don’t forget to find all those required readers.
Step two: Lay out all the homeschool books on the floor or table
This may be a bit scary when you see just how much curriculum you have collected over the years. But, it will make it easier to sort the books.
Step three: Sort the books
There is no magical formula for sorting the books. It’s all about preference. You might want your books sorted by subject or grade level.
Step four: Eliminate what you don’t need
Determine if a younger child can use the books. Be sure the curriculum will fit the child’s learning style. The remaining books need eliminating.
You might consider selling the books to get a return on your investment. You can do this by either taking the books to a homeschool consignment store, selling them at a curriculum sale in your area, or list them on eBay.
