Getting It Organized and Making It Pretty: Part 1

Ready for the first day of our Blog Hop?  Today's theme is

Supply Organization!

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.
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!

I would love for you to join the Blog Hop!  How do you organized supplies?  Please add the button at the top of your post and link up with a direct link to your post!   Make sure to come back tomorrow to read all about organizing your Teacher Resources!
