I opened up a couple of cupboards, and decided right away that I needed to get some new storage containers. I picked up four of these Sterilite Flip Tops (7 5/8 x 6 1/2 x 4 1/2). So far I have put my leftover crayons in one; still deciding what to do with the others. For only $0.96, a great storage solution.
We just found out that our school wide theme for next year is "Oh, the Places You'll Go!", so along with organizing I'm trying to decide what I want to do with classroom decor. I really like the "wild about learning" theme of this year, and don't want to do away with some of the great materials I purchased. I think some will stay, while I integrate some Dr. Seuss into the room.
Here are some other great storage containers I have found. These are from my favorite teacher store: the Dollar Tree!
They are labeled as Food Storage, and are perfect for a number of items in my cupboards.
I'm planning several posts about my journey to better organization. I'd also love to hear about your favorite solutions!
