This summer my schoolroom became a dumping ground for VBS, Rustic Youth Camp, and beach materials. Since we were not using the schoolroom for school, it was an easy place to put things.
Today, I am going to share all of my BEFORE pictures of my schoolroom. They aren't pretty! I spent about 40+ hours in this room, cleaning out, sorting, purging, organizing. I cleaned out drawers and cabinets in my schoolroom that I haven't cleaned out in years. I also rearranged some of the furniture.
Early in the summer--before it got too bad in here...well, actually most of the stuff had been stored in the big closet to make room for Julie's sleepover party.
I moved all of my Sonlight books from my den into my schoolroom. In order to make room for them, I had to clear my schoolroom shelves of my miscellaneous history and science books. So I sorted the books into categories--all over the floor.
Even in the midst of all of my cleaning, Leah still managed to find a space for arts and crafts.
It got worse before it got better!

the book piles getting more organized
This is where I stored our new curriculum as it arrived.
I am not sure why the snow cone machine is up there!
The closet where everything was stuck for the party.
I will share one AFTER picture. The walk in closet! I even had an empty space after I cleaned it out! But now there is something in that space, and I can't think of what it is right now.
Tomorrow, I will share all of my AFTER pictures. I was very pleased with how my schoolroom turned out!
