Easy Homework Caddy

 We had a tear free first day of school on Monday!  Praise the Lord!  It was a lot better than last year.
I’m on a mission to be more organized this school year.  {Organization is not one of my spiritual gifts.  I have to work at it.}

One issue we had last year was our inability to ever find a pencil at homework time.  More than once, McKenna’s teacher wrote a note home instructing us not to do homework in pen.  Opps.  My bad.

Hopefully my latest project will help solve that problem.
I took a bathroom caddy and turned it into our own little homework station.  I found this one for $3 at Big Lots.  (I love it when the dorm stuff comes out each year.  They always have tons of storage items in cute colors.)
But I still wanted to jazz it up a little.  Luckily, I had some washi tape on hand from a pick your plum deal months ago.
To corral the pencils in the caddy, I used an old mayonnaise jar.
Then all I had to do was add the school supplies!  Easiest project ever!  And the whole thing cost less than $5!
Homework Caddy
We are excited to start using it for homework!  And it fits perfectly in one of the cubbies in the pantry for easy access.  It’s the little things.
If you love it, give it a pin!
I'm going to be organized this year!  Having the homework supplies in one spot will make things so much easier!  I can never find a pencil when they need one.
I’ll be back soon with first day of school pictures!
