After homeschooling for several years, I’ve learned what works best for me when it comes to planning. I’m happy to share with you a few of my favorite planning tools for homeschool moms.

Homeschool Planner

I’m sure I’m biased, but I think my printable planners and homeschool planners are some of the best homeschool planners available.

We sold many planners for 2016-2017 and are making them even better for the 2017-2018 academic year because they will be EDITABLE! We’re putting the finishing touches on them right now so they should be available for purchase in the next week or so. My planners have great flexibility and are offered in a variety of colors.

3 Ring Binders

I’ve written before about how I love to use three-ring binders for organizing homeschool materials. I also love them for my homeschool planner pages. I like to use the white ones with the clear pocket on the front and spine, but have also used pretty decorated ones in the past as well.

InkJoy Pens

I discovered InkJoy pens last year and they quickly became a favorite. They are comfortable to hold, they are smooth, and the colors are gorgeous and rich. Caroline likes them too for her drawing and art projects. I think these will be a staple in our house for a long time. The mini ones are super cute! I have a set in a jelly jar on my desk and I use them all the time!

Composition Books

I use composition books all the time for planning. They are great for making lists that I don’t need to keep forever in a planner, but that I also don’t want on random pieces of paper throughout the house. I use composition books for personal lists, work projects, brainstorming, food journals, etc. They are great because they are big enough to hold a lot of info on a page, but small enough that they fit neatly on my desk or counter. You can use colorful pens and washi tape to personalize them as well!

Washi Tape

Caroline got me started on washi tape last year and I’ve enjoyed seeking out pretty patterns to use. The hard part is choosing since there are so many gorgeous ones! But they are a fun way to add color to whatever you are working on.

Ticonderoga Pencils

In the past I couldn’t have really included them in a “colorful” list, but woo hoo! Colored barrels (even neon!) have come to Ticonderoga pencils! But seriously. Ticonderoga pencils are the best. Buy them for yourself. Buy them for your kids. They really are worth the extra money. Every time I pick up a pencil that isn’t a Ticonderoga, I put it back and look for one.
