Clutter-Free Classroom Project ~ Week 5 Challenge

This week's Challenge for The Clutter-Free Classroom Project was all about storage containers {sadly, a subject near and dear to my heart!}.

If you are in need of a serious classroom de-clutter-fication {yeah I just made that up}, then I highly suggest you check out this awesome Project and join in the fun!






So here is the prompt for this week:



PROMPT(s):

SHARE YOUR FAVORITE CLASSROOM STORAGE CONTAINER. EXPLAIN WHY YOU LIKE IT AND WHAT YOU USE IT FOR.




This is my absolute favorite storage container...ever!!!  I ordered it from Really Good Stuff a few years ago and have loved it ever since.  I noticed that it now costs about $40 more than when I bought mine, so it's pretty expensive...unfortunately!




I keep this little piece of Heaven behind my desk and use it to store colored paper.  I don't use this for the colored paper {copy, card stock, or construction} my students use.  That stuff is stored elsewhere in my classroom to allow for easy access by my students.  

In this, I put all the colored paper that I use to create little signs, instructions for centers and stations, etc., that my OCD brain likes to make.

And, of course, it's color-coded to match the drawer color as much as possible!  I put regular colored paper in the top set of drawers and colored card stock in the bottom set of drawers.

When I need to throw a sheet in the printer, it's right in reach!!!  :)
