Showin Off My Stuff!

Ever feel like you have a million things to do?  Of course, you are all teachers!  I have so much to do, but really wanted to join this linky party.  It was posted about 3 days ago, but I'm joining anyway!

Christina from Bunting, Books and Bainbridge wants to see our stuff for Back to School.  Well, I think she just opened up a can of worms!

Thanks to Erica's heads up, I ran to Big Lots to grab some goodies for my classroom.  Can you tell what color theme I am going with this year??

These crates will be used to house student book bags when they are not in use.  Don't worry, I have a pink one at school!

These bins will be for books in my classroom library.  I already have some bins from The Dollar Tree, which you can check out here.  These are a little bigger, which will be perfect for non-fiction books.

I think I am going to use the bins on the left for classroom materials such as pencils, crayons, scissors, etc.  The boxes on the right could be used for game pieces or flash cards.

 Not sure what I am going to do with these bins yet.  Any ideas??  I just couldn't resist the matching colors!

These small containers will probably be used for materials as well.  I had planned to use the ribbon {on the lef} for a border on my bulletins boards, but I don't think it is wide enough.  On the right is washi tape because, well, washi tape is just fun!

I had a helper while I was taking pictures and just had to share!  He was both scared of the bins and intrigued by the camera.

There is a chance that I have an obsession with storage containers!


  1. Love the colors! I'm going to have to head to Big Lots soon.

  4. I love the colors!! What about using the taller containers for notebooks for small groups? Or to hold guided reading books? Or maybe to store some centers? I know where I will be stopping by tomorrow!
