It’;s Back to School time for many of you.? Which means homework battles for most of you. I thought I’;d share my portable homework station again to help ease the pain and possibly create healthy study habits. This worked like a charm last year and I fully intend on using it again this year.?

Depending on what grade your child is in, will determine what you’;ll need to put into your portable homework station. Stuff it full of all the school supplies for homework on the go, or at home.

My son can pick up this portable homework station, making anywhere his study area. He takes it where ever his 13 yr old body wants to flop down to study and tackle his homework. It’;s great for on the go too. ?Bringing this along for long rides in the car work nicely. It has everything he needs. I even stuff a few snacks inside with a bottle of water.

I’;ve packed it with everything and anything I think he may need.? This cuts down on the questions that contribute to stalling.

Using a crafters canvas caddy?gave me plenty of room(4 sides) to stuff this baby without taking up a ton of space in my home. This easily fits in my office closet when not in use.? It also matches my sons bedroom…;…;..and we all know how important that is.

Side 1: Pencils, pens of all colorspersonalized gifts for kids, colored pencils, scissors, compass, protractor, ruler.

Side 2: Stapler, tape, colored markers, calculator.

Side 3: Pencil sharpener, glue stick, glue, erasers.

Side 4: Snacks

Inside: Paper, composite books, notebooks, graph paper

Having this tote fully packed means that I also know where to find scissors, tape or other household items that seem to always go missing.

If you have more than one child, they could of course share, but each could have their own color with items for their own grade.

Here’;s to a successful school year!

Edited: It’;s now 2017 and my son is starting his freshman year in college. I’;m hoping the early study habits we tried teaching him will show! I should send him a portable homework station in a care package.?

When I say foot control, I’m not talking about the pedal you step on to power your machine. This post is about how I organize and store my BERNINA presser feet and accessories. One of the most often asked questions when I am teaching is, “How do you store your presser feet?” Over the years I tried everything from tackle boxes to multi-drawer hardware chests to putting organizer trays in drawers. They all worked to organize and store most of my feet, but not all of these methods had a place to store the larger accessories. (I should let you know that I have ALL of the BERNINA feet and accessories, plus duplicates of some, so finding something to fit them all is no easy task.)
