Not only are they so much easier to use but I also found the perfect storage solution for them!! I LOVE a good, useful, and labeled container like none other. I honestly think I may have a touch of OCD. From the moment it popped into my head I could think of nothing else. A friend of mine had recently purchased these Sterilite containers for her classroom. I had coveted them for quite a while. They are the perfect size for pretty much anything. I spent most of Sunday night dreaming about stopping by Walmart on my way to work the next morning.
They look awesome stacked and with a super cute label. I'm a SUCKER for a label.Click the picture below to get yours, FREE!
And, last but not least, they also fit perfectly on my leveled library book shelf. *sigh* They make me so happy.
You would think this would be the end but I was so pleased with how they worked for my listening centers that I had to run out again, early in the morning, before school, and this time I bought Walmart OUT of these. See the picture below and it should become clear why.
^^^^This WAS my math center shelf!! UNACCEPTABLE!!^^^^
Honestly, I don't know how I lived with that clutter for 30+ days. After a little makeover using my new, favorite containers, this was the end result.
Doesn't that just make you feel happy and calm all over? Or, am I the only weirdo?

Organizing, I love it. Probably #3 on the list of reasons why I became a teacher.
I hope you enjoyed the freebies. There are more to come so be sure to follow me. :)
