Ready for the first day of our Blog Hop? Today's theme is
My goal this year is to keep a clean and organized room. I am so lucky to have one of the largest classrooms I have been in to date and feel that it would be a waste to not keep it looking great!
First order of business: my cabinets.
I have always been kinda organized with my supply cabinets. Most of my materials were already in boxes and had some kind of label on them. Although there was a time my cabinet looked like this- Eeek!
I have gotten better since then and moved to some more uniform containers, but it still wasn't up to snuff.
I donated most of my containers to other teachers and bought these AWESOME plastic show boxes from Costco. They are nice and heavy duty. I decided that uniform boxes and labels wasn't enough, I had to get even more persnickety. I colored coded my labels and decided against clip art on the labels. I wanted to labels to be clean and simple.
Blue polka dot labels- office supplies
Green polka dots- miscellaneous
Pink polka dots- craft supplies
Purple polka dots- math supplies
Also included are chevron labels for paper stackers for different styles of student handwriting paper..
The second set of chevron labels are for teacher materials. I am going to attach these to Sterilite drawers the size copy paper that hold my copies for upcoming weeks.
Ahhh....much better. The labels just make me happy :).

Please note I would LOVE to customize the labels for you. However, I go back to school Monday. Monday! My time will be very limited. I will charge a small fee for any customizing of this freebie. I hate to say it, but I just have to make sure I use my time wisely :(. I want to work smarter and not harder this year. Because apparently in years past, I wasn't too smart!
