Off-grid pantry planner


Note: You don’t have to be a homeschooling family to get a lot of good ideas out these lists!

I told you the other day I was seriously thinking about homeschooling my boys and had been doing a lot of research. I found so much good stuff offered online from supportive parents who’ve been there and are doing it and some offering free printables and more. I want to share these websites with you.


I’ve already enjoyed printing forms for organizing, book lists, and whatever. Because I know I want to be in charge of my kids’ curriculum, be able to teach them in ways that interest them, I know I need organizational forms to help me stay on track.


My strategy is to print off at least one copy of all the forms I’m really interested in and then have time to look and think through them and decide which I think will work best for my goals.


I bought a “durable” white 3 ring binder about 2″wide and a pack of 50 page protectors at Walmart (total about $9.00). I’m putting my blank forms in there for now but we will use these page protectors and binder to hold their school work once we get started until I get them their own notebooks.

Be sure to browse these sites as some have tons of info, some have freebies.

TheHomeSchoolMom has free printables.

HomeschoolViews has free printables.

NotebookingPages has free printable AND if you sign up for her free email newsletter she will send you some great deals /or coupon codes to save even more on her packages. I’ve bought 2 packages already.

DonnaYoung has free printables too.

A to Z’s Home’s Cool – I highly recommend you spend time here. You’ll see why. Tons of info. A great place to start when you aren’t sure where to go next.
