I ROYGBIV my closet too!!! With the front of the shirt facing left...


Beautiful! I love all the colors and the organization. Good luck on a new school year.




I read that a week or two ago. Awesome!


Very nice! Thanks for sharing.


oooooh! i love your room and your organization. I want ROYGBIV too!! My files are these horrible olive green army color. Not inspiring at all!!

Did you do your binders like that last year? I love the idea of having them all nicely labeled like that. I have only one 1 1/2 inch binder per kid and I know it's not going to be enough room for their stuff all year... but at the beginning they look SO big too me with only a few sheets in them.

I also love the idea of spreading out friday's work across the first 4 days of the week. I have always wanted to school Mon-thurs, but didnt' want to add on extra weeks to make up for the lost time on fridays. I'm going to have to think about that one... so smart!


I almost wet my pants looking at this. My closet is ROYGBIVed too! :-)


I love how organized you are...this is my goal. Thanks for the ideas.

P.S. I ROYGBIV my shirts, too. You are not alone. I also eat my skittles in rainbow order.

Wow, wow, wow! You are my hero! We are just starting our homeschooling journey and all I can think about is how we need to paint the den and playroom before we can even start getting organized. That's how bad it is. Can't wait to put some of your ideas into practice.


You have given me sooo many great ideas for organization this school year! Love how you have it all in place...what a GREAT school room!



Where can I find that color coded drawers?love it...


Love, love, love, this post!!! I organize our school year into weeks and file items in each weeks folder too. :)


I am a new homeschooling mom, and I love this post! It is so beautiful. I am a planner and an organizer - or at least I try to be. This is very inspiring. I am trying to figure out how to do school planning and figure out how I am going to organize our school room. Where did you get the racks with the colorful drawers?


Your classroom looks wonderful! I'm working on organizing today and came across your blog while looking for ideas. I love the rainbow colors too, so bright and happy!


Yes where are those drawer bins from?


You're so organized and it looks like your doing a GREAT job...From an 'old' homeschooler :-)


You're clearly very organized (yay, you!), but something here is bugging me a little:

If the kids don't complete all of the work for the given week (they're struggling with a concept can't quite get it all finished, they get engrossed in one topic and you want to stretch it out a little longer, etc.), do you just re-parcel the subsequent weeks' work into the other folders? In some ways your system doesn't look that different from public school pacing guides.

In the interest of full disclosure, I'm a public school teacher who is very interested in the whys and hows of homeschooling :)


Awesome CLASSROOM! Thanks so much for sharing it, it has given me so much inspiration to put into action :)


I'm a public school teacher that organizes each grade level I teach by color as well. It coordinates with our curriculum but anyway...I love the ROYGBIV drawers you have and was wondering where you got them???


You had me at "ROYGBIV". :)

Let me just say that I am in awe of you. I wish you could come over for a play date and help me get this organized. I don't know why I can't seem to get a flow going to organize our homeschool supplies. What advice can you give me to help with organizing my school? FYI though, we have no space to really designate to school. We do it in the living room, my dd's bedroom and at the kitchen table. I'm trying to organize my papers, her school books, our templates,(we lapbook&notebook), arts & craft supplies, it's rather exasperating. We can't even utilize my daughters bedroom because she has an 8'x8' dance floor in there. (she is a competative Irish Dancer. I am open to suggestions. Thank You!!! You really do have an amazing school area.

Who We Are

  • Lisa- The Blogger
    Droid stuff 2 898

    This is me. I like to think I am complex and multi-faceted but I think much of the time I am a silly, zany, free-spirited person who really enjoys life. I like to make people happy, I like to be happy. I am a sanguine through and through. I love crafting, Pinterest, gathering ideas, computer stuff, watching movies, sleepovers and hugging on my offspring. I don't like internet haters who assume to 'know' me just by what they read here. There is a reason this is called 'Pieces' Of Us. It's just a small peek in the window. You may think you know, but you have no idea.
  • Mike- The Sportsman

    Mike is more than just a sportsman but he does like to shoot a deer now and then. In his other spare moments which are few and far between he is taking college courses to finish his degree or tending to his pack as Cubmaster. He loves to spend time with the kids and they think he is pretty great even if he is a goofball who loves to embarrass them.
  • Madeline- The Free Spirited Bohemian One

    This kid could be happy with just some books, a drawing pad and a pencil. She has an aptitude for art and has really excelled at drawing over the past year. She is patient and kind but has a mischievous twinkle in her eye. Maddy is dependable, if you want something done, she's your girl and she does it with a cheerful spirit.
  • Gabriella- The Creative Ray of Light

    Gabby has sparkle, she has pizzazz, she has talent. She is the kid you never have to tell to practice the piano instead you tell her to take a break. She loves to chat with her friends on the computer (what teen doesn't?) and write stories with her twin sister. She's a practical joker and has a terrific sense of humor. Did I mention she is also a talented actress as well?
  • AJ- The Deep Thinker

    This boy is going places! AJ is always thinking. He is a true philosopher pondering the whys of everything but he is also an inventor/engineer also determining the hows. He spends hours building and taking things apart. We worry that he will one day blow up the house but for now he is pretty darn useful at optimizing our computers and rewiring things that break around here.
  • Genevieve Audrey- The Spunky One

    Spunky doesn't even begin to describe it. She is a social butterfly and she loves to sit and chat as long as her victim will listen. Ginny is a tiny little thing but her spirit is huge and she's smart to boot. She is proving to be an excellent big sister and is teaching Jilly the ropes.
  • Caleb Allen- The Littlest Man

    He doesn't like it when you run your fingers through his hair so we do it all the more. Caleb is just so cute and snuggly. He is always full of enthusiasm whether it be positive or negative. He either really loves something or he doesn't like it at all. We love him regardless.
  • Jillian Clementine- The Boss

    She may be small but she makes up for it big time. Jillian likes to let people know who is in charge and we often have to take her down a peg... or five. She says funny things so often that she has her own blog Jillyish. She loves to use huge words like intrusive and incredible or any other adjective that shouldn't come out of a three year old. She will also tell you that she is too shy to say Hi but don't believe it because she is pure drama.
  • Jess..ica- She hiccups
    MICHAEL 017_filtered

    She may not be blood but we claim her as one of us. Honestly, I don't know what I'd do without her around. She makes us laugh and she can sing like a hamster. Everyone needs a friend with a hamster voice. Now she'll probably ask me to take this down but I'm not gonna. Because we love her.
