New School Year Cleanout Day 3: Set up a Study Area

We hope you're enjoying the New School Year Cleanout so far! Today's topic? Setting up a space to study!

Having a quiet study can help your child stay focused and organized. If you don’t have a desk, get creative: use the top of a dresser or a storage chest, inside of an armoir, picnic table, etc. and equip it with:

  • A comfortable, supportive chair
  • An inexpensive adjustable lamp
  • A cup full of writing utensils
  • Calculator, bookends, dictionary -- anything your kid(s) (or you!) might need for quiet reading, work, or study.

Where will you set up a study area if you don't already have one? What supplies will you stash there? Any creative tips you can offer?

We have five desks set up for our school area, but our oldest two also have a 'hidden' corner in their room where they can go to study, play, read.  They love having their own space!!

We have four boys that share a room, so we had to get creative to give them space.  The bunk beds don't fit up against the wall because of the angled ceiling, so in the space between the bed and the wall we have tucked a tv tray and a chair.  They LOVE it!

We have a desk in the living room for our boys to use.

I need to get DD better storage so she can have more room on her desk.

We have a desk in their bedroom. We are cleaning it off today and putting a pen/pencil holder, and keep other supplies in the drawers.

This year I'm going to be the one in school. Going back to college. I don't study well at home, so I will be doing most of my school work at the school library/computer lab. Some of my work will have to be done in the kitchen too. Culinary degree.

For my littlest one I'm thinking of turning her old crib into a desk pintrest-style.

They do their home work at the kitchen table so I can help while cooking dinner

However, she can also do work at the table, outside, in her room or on the couch
