Printable Homeschool Planner ~ The Expansion Pack

Printable Homeschool Planner Expansion Pack via Organizing Homelife

Over the last three years, I have received many requests from readers to share how I organize our homeschool with my Homeschool Planner. I am about to enter my eleventh year of homeschooling my children and have tried many methods of planning over the years.  I have made my own schedules and printables along the way and tweaked them over the years to make planning simpler and more complete. The Homeschool Planner with the Expansion Pack is very detailed, and will save you a LOT of frustration later on if you use it now.  Not only will it help you […]

Homeschool Planner – How to Organize Your Homeschool

Organized Homeschool Planner New

In just a few weeks I will begin my eleventh year of homeschooling my kids.  I can hardly believe I just typed those words.  It’s crazy how fast the time has gone! Over the years, I’ve picked up a thing or two about homeschooling and finally feel like I know what I’m doing.  In the beginning I was so insecure and was afraid I would “break” my kids or fail miserably and deprive them of intellectual learning opportunities.  By God’s grace, I have grown in confidence and have enjoyed watching my kids grow and learn.  And amazingly, they are doing […]

#FinishMoms $100 Visa Gift Card Giveaway

Finish Power & Free #FinishMoms

Over the last few months, I’ve been testing and reviewing Finish® Power & Free™ Dishwasher tabs.  I have used Finish® detergent for the last seven years, and am brand loyal because it’s a great product.  I am always interested in trying new products, but when one works so well, why change it? So what’s “new” with Finish® Brand?  Their new Power & Free™ formula offers the same great cleaning power you’ve come to expect, but is now made with less harsh chemicals.  Since my kids help to clean up after each meal, it makes me feel great to know that […]

Organizer Turned DIYer ~ A Trip to Haven

Becky and Ginny at Haven-1

Last weekend my hubby and I traveled to Atlanta, GA so I could attend the Haven blogging conference.  We went last year, too, but this year we left the kiddos with family and went by ourselves.  It was so nice!  If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen a few pics of our trip along the way. Haven is a home and DIY conference where several hundred bloggers gather for a long weekend and take classes to better their skills in the business of blogging and learn new tips for home DIY projects.  Lots of our favorite companies […]

How to Organize Kids’ Games and a FREE Printable Organizer

How to Make a Game Instructions Binder with FREE Printable

We love games.  We love family game nights and late night fun and games with friends.  Now that our kiddos are growing up, they’re enjoying playing with the games, too.  Unfortunately, they don’t have the same interest in caring for the games as my hubby and I. No matter how much we “encourage” them to put all the parts away when they’re finished playing, it seems like the one thing I constantly find left out are the instructions.  We all know a game is no good if you don’t know how to play it, so keeping the instructions with the […]
