As most of you know, I have a huge love for homeschooling. Making the choice to send our 4 year old to half day kindergarten this past year was a tricky (okay, heartbreaking) decision for the hubster and I, but we did it based on the social/emotional development that school was able to expose him to. Truthfully, if I hadn’t been pregnant with our 3rd baby, I probably wouldn’t have even enrolled him … but nonetheless it made the most sense at the time.

 All Access Organizers

Since my high-risk pregnancy was also coupled with moving into our new home, all of my homeschool resources were thrown placed gently into moving bins – and for the most part, everything has stayed that way…until now. For anyone keeping notes, it’s been 1 year since we moved, yikes! However, with summer break here, homeschooling is back on again. The only problem is that our homeschool room has now been turned into a beautiful nursery. So the kitchen will just have to do – although the Hubster doesn’t want everything thrown on the counter. So I needed a better storage solution. Luckily I found exactly what I need – Rubbermaid® All Access™ Organizers!

All Access Organizers

We all know that traditional bins are great for storing unused/seasonal items, but I need something better for my homeschool items. I need to be able to see into them quickly and actually access what I’m searching for in a second. For those reasons alone, the Rubbermaid All Access organizers are perfect for my family, because they have a clear, drop down door which allows us to retrieve exactly what we want, when we want it – without needing to dig down below to find what I’m looking for! Finally, I can grab what I need – anytime I need it, even when they are stacked on top one another! Now that’s pretty awesome, right?! I sure think so! No more procrastinating to get the things I need just because I don’t want to throw out my back unstacking heavy containers!

All Access Organizers

I’m sure you can imagine all the wonderful uses for these containers, other than homeschooling items. For instance – they would make an excellent storage area in the garage for balls, skipping ropes, sidewalk chalk and toys. Or even better – set them up under a desk for a convenient organizer of all your papers, CDs and even stationary needs! The possibilities really are endless, but I have to say the most unique idea I recently came across was to use it as a gecko home, with a little bit of modification of course! ;)

All Access Organizers

While I am using 2 medium organizers for my day-to-day homeschool supplies, I am also using 2 more for my craft supplies! I just need to print off some pretty pages to place in the front windows of each bin. I’m definitely thinking some scrapbook paper and my label maker are going to be put to use ;) Don’t you just love getting more organized?! I am SO excited about these!!

I would also love to see them offered in more neutral colours, so they can blend into any room’s decor. Overall, I give the All Access Organizers 2 thumbs up!
