Bookcase Family Organizer: This bookshelf organizes my kids, my and family and my life! Makes a great piece for a home work space or kids home school area.
Today I am sharing with you one of our family’s organizing secrets: our Bookcase Family Organizer.
On the first shelf I have my cookbooks, a homework organizer basket containing pencils, calculators, dictionaries and a thesaurus for my boys homework time.
This shelf is home to a second basket which contains hair gel and a brush (for my youngest son who sometimes wants to run out of the house with bedhead!) and sunscreen.
Two magazine holders hold operation manuals for my kitchen appliances and some local tourist information brochures/pamphlets so that on weekends we can just grab a brochure and set a destination for the day!
The bottom shelf holds more recipe books and 2 Binders containing recipes, one for Breakfast, Appetizer and Main Course recipes and the second binder just for Dessert recipes!
I put my recipes in clear plastic 3 holed sheet protectors and have them tabbed to organize them, for example: one tab for pies, one for frozen desserts, one for muffins ect.
Here are my collection of food magazines:
Top of Bookcase:
Two pewter vases from Norway, presents my husband brought home for me when he was on a military exercise there a number of years ago.
They have beautiful designs on them – and are perfect for little bouquets of flowers.
These are silk yellow tulips from Michaels – love this color of yellow!
Westmoorland Milk Glass bowl filled with reindeer moss. I love this shade of green!
Apothecary jar filled with my DIY Pottery Barn Inspired Page Scrolls.
So that’s our Bookcase Family Organizer…do you have a central organizing center in your home?
