Back to School Organization

Everyday (at least most days) we do calendar math in my classroom. We also have a word wall. Both of them mean that I have to keep up with small pieces that get added during the appropriate season/unit. It's hard to keep up with all of the pieces, but I definitely want to reuse them from year to year. I needed a way to organize and store them cheaply. Here's what I cam up with.
I already had some Swiffer wet wipe containers around the house. I cleaned the boxes and removed the plastic label around them. Then, I created monthly labels to put on the top and side. I printed, labeled, and hot glued the labels. Here's how they came out. 

Thanks for stopping by Grade School Giggles and taking the time to read my post. Let me know if you have any other storage ideas for these boxes and if you would like a set for your classroom you can grab this freebie by clicking on the picture. 

Mandy over at Mandy's Tips for Teachers is hosting a linky party all about supply organization. She is sharing some free supply labels too. I decided to link up this post and I can't wait to see what other ideas are shared. Hop on over  by clicking on the button below.
