Time to join the party.... An organizational linky party, is my kind of party!
I do not like clutter. My classroom is full of stuff and although it can be hard to tame the clutter - I try very hard every year to reduce the clutter. I like things to have a place to go and for kids to have access to what they need without it always being "out." Mostly, having clutter around drives me crazy and is a constant distraction until it's cleaned up... must be the OCD side of me. So, this year, to help contain my clutter (aka my desk of "stuff") I made a teacher toolbox I saw on Pinterest. I wasn't sure I was going to like it all ... but after using it the entire year, I'm in love with it! I kept it on a shelf behind my desk so I can easily access the stuff but it wouldn't be out in the open on my desk. It was a an easy project and a great way to organize my school supplies this year!
Here's the finished project! I went with a cupcake the theme and added the ribbon to help it tie into my library's green, teal, and pink color scheme. I don't do everything matching in my room but a little consistency is nice! The paper and ribbon were under $5 dollars each from Walmart and the tool organizer was under $20 dollars last year at Home Depot.
Overall, I was very happy with my project and how it turned out! It was budget friendly & looks adorable! This bin was also great for keeping my lovely students out of my supplies.
So I have a new idea! I found this organizational gem on Pinterest....
Now of course, I have to make them cute and match the rest of my classroom so I found these cute FREE labels on Pinterest.I labeled my new drawers with these super cute polka dot circles! You can get them here if you'd like to use them as well! They are FREE :)
Do you have a way you like manage your classroom supplies?
