I am still trying to figure the best way to organize our space. We have a computer/printer, books, art stuff, science stuff, globes, maps, etc. I also run a business out of the same space. I feel like both could be better organized to make things more effective. Any tips, ideas, or pictures would be a huge help! Maybe when I get it together (ha!) I can post pictures of our spot.
I have my business (with its inventory and supplies) in a separate room from our homeschool room. Since I deal largely in fabric, I think having my (fairly young) kids using markers and scissors in the same room as my business would be a terrible, terrible idea. That said, if I WERE to combine them, I'd just get a LOT of good storage shelves and bins.
I do not use fancy bins, i use the smaller size clear Rubbermaid (or similar) bins, in shoebox and 15 qt size. I currently use a combination of some cheapish self-assembly modular shelves along with giant sets of metal shelves from Costco. The taller the better, because otherwise you're wasting all that vertical space that the kids can't reach, lol.
