Where are we going to actually “do school”? I don’t have an area big enough. I don’t know how to utilize my space. I want to set up a homeschool area but not sure where to start. I don’t want homeschooling to take over our living area.
These thoughts and questions are perfectly normal, and you are not alone if you’ve had any of them (or others not even mentioned). It comes with the journey… so don’t worry yourself mama! Hopefully I can help ease some of your organization stress by sharing how we homeschool in a small area, utilizing space that isn’t too overwhelming, but welcoming at the same time.
We are a family of five, soon to be six by December. Our home is right under 1000 square feet with two bedrooms and one bath. So when it comes to working with small spaces… trust me, I am there. Thing is, I have grown accustomed to our little duplex. I have learned to utilize the space we have and make the most of it.
This is our second year setting up an actual school area in one remote location. While we school all over the place, the kitchen is where we do most of our focused learning. The living room is the runner up, and our son’s bedroom comes in at third place. That’s the joy of homeschooling! You can school where ever you want…. but if you are looking to set a particular school area, may I encourage you to JUST DO IT!
You’ll see in the video below how I utilize the space in our kitchen. I love posters, drawer carts, and shelves. Be sure to snag the FREE PRINTABLES I talked about in the video too (just scroll past the video).

Until next time, happy homeschooling-
