When I come across a cool classroom organization idea, I just have to share with other teachers! Perhaps it’s because we have a smaller classroom, but we love any storage ideas that can easily be rolled around and moved out of the way when not needed. We have 3 of these plastic rolling carts that are great for that purpose.
I’ve had these Sterlite Drawers for years, I think from when I first started teaching 14 years ago. While surfing Pinterest, I found a great idea that Maria from Kindercraze shared: Line the drawers with scrapbook paper! Labels will be added to the drawers soon.
Did I take ANY pictures of the process? Nope. I was having so much fun with this that I didn’t want to stop and grab the camera!
Want to see how you, too, can add some color to your rolling cart? Since Maria describes it best (and you just have to see her cute Sterlite drawers!), I will send you to her blog for instructions. The one thing I will add is that I used double-sided Scotch tape between the drawers/sides and the paper. It seemed to position the paper in place better and felt a bit more secure.
The total cost was under $3 for the paper (it was on sale 4 sheets for $1 at Joann’s).
Do you have a fun storage idea? Share it on my Facebook page!
