Homeschooling is a naturally messy occupation with its books and papers, art mediums and science projects. Even if you have a dedicated Homeschool Room, homeschooling tends to take place all over the house—as well it should. Homeschooling truly is a way of life, and should reach the very corners of our homes, but that reach is a messy one, and we may find ourselves overwhelmed by the chaos that seemingly appeared overnight.
And it’s the management of this homeschooling mess no one prepares us for. No cleaning routine or book addresses the homeschooling mom’s plight. They speak to the public school mom whose children bring home papers that need to be organized, but they do not speak to the mom who lives with the papers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for years on end. And she doesn’t just live with papers, she lives with all the educational paraphernalia that help her do her job.
