Over the years I have tried many different methods to organize daily curriculum. We’ve used baskets, shelves, tubs, even a dish drainer! About eight months ago, Aldi had these amazing carts for $25. I wasn’t sure I really wanted to buy one ($25 is a bit steep for me) and passed them up the first couple of times I saw them. But I just couldn’t shake the thought that it would be great to organize our daily curriculum.
Eventually, I went back and bought one. And I am so glad I did!!!
Check out the video below to see what all I keep on the cart.
Some of our favorite things in the school cart. . .
- Channie’s Easy Peasy Writing Pages (See my review of Channie’s Pages here)
- Leading Little Ones to God
- Little Pilgrims Progress
- David Macaulay’s The New Way Things Work
- The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place
- Jolly Grammar
Make the school cart work for you
I have four of those file holders, a 1 1/2″ binder and a pretty thick book on the top of my school cart. Any number of things would fit there. And as for the second and third shelves, I’m not even capitalizing on that space. Both shelves have a couple things just thrown on them. You could stand novel-size books down there, keep a smaller tub of colored pencils or crayons, or just keep some notebooks or binders stacked there.
Like I said in the video, I love that I can take my school cart wherever we are in the house, even out on the porch! I foresee us using the school cart for many years to come!
Our school cart has been the answer to the problem of how to organize daily curriculum. It’s mobile, stays relatively organized, and keeps everything just a reach away!
