Homework stations can be a lifesaver when it comes to back to school season. I’m so excited to share the easy and inexpensive way I help my children stay organized while they do their homework! I created this Dollar Tree Homework Station for only THREE DOLLARS, so my children have all the supplies they need in one place. It’s so convenient for our family and I know you will love it, too!!
Have you ever bought plenty of pencils and other school supplies at the beginning of the school year only to have one of your children come up to you asking for more pencils a few months (or weeks!) later?
This organizational homework desk idea will save you and your children both time and hassle of searching for supplies needed to complete their homework! I love this system because my children can keep their pencils, paper, and markers, etc. at school or in their backpacks and exclusively use these supplies during homework time.

Homework Desk Idea
This Dollar Tree Homework Station saves our family SO much time! We no longer have to search for pencils that are sharpened or for scissors. (I don’t know about you, but scissors tend to disappear at our house!) This time-saving homework hack will help your children build even better homework habits!!
I find a desk or designated area for my children to work, and then it becomes the perfect homework desk idea that allows them to be productive, with all the supplies right there in reach.

Portable Homework Station
I also love that this system is portable. When the weather is gorgeous outside, take it outside and let your kiddos do their homework in the fresh air! When working in the home office, they can do their homework in the same room as you.
Or, they can bring it to the kitchen table and work on it while you cook dinner. This homework station is SO handy!! Whenever it’s homework time, my children know exactly where to get their supplies, and (perhaps more importantly!) they know that all supplies are to be returned to the homework station, too, which is also super important to establish upfront!!
Dollar Tree Back to School Hack
Furthermore, it is SUPER inexpensive to create!! Did you know that I only spent $3 on this? I purchased every single organizational supply at my local Dollar Tree! Keep in mind that some local Dollar Tree stores might have different inventory, but I’m sure you can easily find similar supplies to what I have used here!
I bought two packages of cups which contained four cups each, as well as one plastic caddy. You can see how easy it is to put together. You need one plastic caddy with a handle, six plastic cups, and our FREE Homework Station Organizer Printable that you need to download here. All you have to do is insert six cups into the caddy, cut out and glue on the printable label, and stock with all of your favorite school supplies!
I can’t wait to hear how this homework station works for your children!! When you create your own, post a photo on Instagram or Facebook and tag Passion for Savings! We would LOVE to see your take on this project! Your children will love using this system and YOU will love the time saved and how budget-friendly this project is!
