Making a Year Monday!

Though it is summer vacation for many of us, we, teachers, are constantly thinking and preparing for the next school year.  We all have those "to do" list that we want to accomplish before school starts back.  One thing I do at the beginning of every year is try to get organized.  There is so much to get rid of and so many new things to create a home for in your classroom.  I am always scoping out the storage containers around town and online trying to find what I need and at the best price.  Here are a few of my favorite places to look for storage for my classroom-

The dollar section and the college dorm room storage 

LOVE my dollar tree finds!  Not always a large amount of color choices, but definitely worth looking through!

The Container Store® - The Original Storage and Organization Store®
LOVE this store!  So much to choose from!

I am getting my students' book boxes from here.  Set of 5 for $1.99

Company Name
You can normally find really good deals on storage here!  

Walmart. Save Money. Live Better.
Walmart is my least favorite place to visit, because it is always soooo busy.  But they do have good deals on the college dorm storage and normally it cute designs and colors.

Let me know where you shop for your classroom storage needs!  Have a Marvelous Monday, friends!


  1. I did buckets this past year from The Dollar Tree for each of my students "art boxes" and I LOVED them. They were perfect. Just a suggestion.

  2. I love to use clear bins so I can switch up the labels when I change color schemes...I got them wicked cheap at Walmart. Love cheap storage and love your blog!!

  3. Target is the place for me, although I do occasionally venture to Walmart. I am looking for new library bins for my library this year.

  5. Thanks for the great ideas. I have never been to IKEA, so I may be taking a mini road trip soon!
