Workbox system

I’m a skeptical person. I never know what is going to work and whats not going to work. With my kids.. You really never know. It looks like a lot of work for me to do. And since we have limited storage space..well I have no idea where I would even put this! The concept seems simple. 12 boxes for each child. numbered. And as they go through the boxes and see them empty they know how much more for the day they have to do. And make them work more independently.

You see, I am cheap.. VERY cheap lol. I do not like spending money. Especially when there’s not much to spend. So I don’t want to buy a book I can’t afford, or spend money on all these plastic organizers. Not when you still have to buy your curriculum and supplies for schoolwork. So I looked around and read a ton of blogs on the subject. And you know what, it seems to be something that could really work. I would list every blog, but I swear there was about 20 and all you have to do is hit the search and type workbox! and there will be a massive amount. I loved seeing how each person actually adapted it to fit their space and life.  So I thought, well if they can adapt it, well so can I! And so to the drawing board I go to see what I can MAKE. Instead of buy 🙂 Let me know your thoughts on the system if you are using it.

    I was looking at the workbox system too. It looks really neat, except I don’t have room for 60 boxes, so I am will have to modify it a bit for it to work for us. I found a ton of bloggers using it too! It was nice to see all the pictures of how they were using it though.

      I saw where they used envelopes or zip lock bags..I wonder if that would work better with bigger families. I dont know anyone with room for 60 + boxes
