One of my most favorite things that I found this Summer are these little magnetic storage containers! I cannot tell you how much I LOVE them!!!! They don’t take up ANY space because they hang right on the side of my cabinet!!! They have clear little windows so that I can see what is inside of each one and as soon as I take something out, I hang it right back where it came from-so, I always know where to find my stuff!! I tried one of the teacher tool boxes that were ALL over pinterst a couple of years ago-but, I didn’t have a good place to store that thing and it just wasn’t convenient. The drawers would get stuck in it and I just wasn’t happy with it. This is a WAAAAAY better option for me! AND they come in different colors-so, they match my classroom! 😉
I think it’s sooooo important to have all supplies easily accessible to everyone!! So, if I’m in the middle of teaching and someone lost a crayon-they can go grab one out of the labeled crayon buckets. Or, if we are in the middle of a project and someone runs out of glue or loses their scissors-I can just tell them to go grab a new one for now and we never miss a beat. We just keep on movin’ along! 😉 I found these adorable polka dot baskets at Dollar General this Summer and made these cute little labels to put on them! As you can see, the labels never made it on! LOL!!! That gives me a goal for organizing in 2014! 😉
Lastly, here is my Centers storage. You can find these Staralite containers from Target or Dollar General. They are the perfect size and they stack nicely. You can grab the labels that I have on these bins for FREE in my TPT store HERE!!
