For the past three weeks, I have been trying to pace myself and clean out my classroom clutter. The end of the year always approaches so quickly, and there is never enough time to regroup. Plus, we are not allowed back on campus until mid-August. My mission: Organization!!
Anna Brantley, of Crazy for First Grade, shared a wonderful and practical method for storing materials. So after downloading her free organization labels, I headed over to the Container Store’s website. I fell in love with their clear containers used for storing shoes. These containers are the perfect width and length for use in my filing and wardrobe cabinets. Plus, you can also see through the lid.
I am so happy that I paced myself and organized all of my materials. Nothing makes this type A girl more happy than things in their proper place. I found that I had materials that I forgot about or couldn’t find. And, after six years of being in the same classroom, I was acquiring sTuFf like a hoarder on A&E. I can finally see what I have and move items about more freely. Now that I’m on break, I can sit back, relax, and think about my beautiful drawers and cabinets. Thanks Anna and the Container Store!
