The Best Kids’ School Supply Caddies

Sharing is Caring

If you’ve opened up Pinterest lately, then you’ve been bombarded with every back-to-school organization and back-to-school decorating idea imaginable.

I can do without the personalized t-shirts and the handwritten lunchbox notes, but ….

I am kind of a sucker for a good, organized homework station.

Which is exactly why I recently created a schoolwork station in my daughter’s bedroom, which will be perfect for distance learning this year.

Check out the colorful, small space homework station we made for her!

It was a simple, budget-friendly project but it’s got everything she needs to get her work done.

And what’s more essential for said homework station than a really great school supply caddy to keep pencils and scissors and markers organized?

Those school supply caddies are like the MVPs of at-home school setups.

Because we were short on floor space when I created my daughter’s homework station, I went with a wall-mounted school supply caddy — which is actually an IKEA utensil holder!

Take a look:

While I was searching for school supply caddies for my daughter’s space, I found lots of affordable and effective solutions to keep the kids’ school supplies organized.

And that’s exactly what I’m sharing with you today!

Every solution I’m sharing below would be perfect for a child of any age: your rising middle schooler, your college freshman, and even the toddler who doesn’t need a homework station but is obsessed with all things arts and crafts. (Gotta find a spot to store all those markers and crayons and glue sticks, right?!)

All right, let’s take a look at all these adorable desk organizing solutions I found.

Some of them are even portable, which makes it easy peasy for your kids to work in any room, with quick access to everything they need to finish that book report.
