I am usually on the lookout for cheap small containers so I can use them for things like this. These were no exception:
- Calculator container: $1 each
- Highlighter container: 2/$1
- Tape container: 2/$1 (target has these right now in colors- dollar spot)
- Scissor container: 3/$1 (from target last week- dollar spot
So you may be thinking sure that looks neat now, but it would never stay that way. Like I said before, it stays this way because there's no other option if they want to ever leave my room. One kid per group is in charge of keeping it this way and that is their sole responsibility and I make sure they take it seriously. This also goes along with my theory of organizing which is that there needs to be a specific place for everything. Since every item has a specific spot that it belongs in, it takes like 2 seconds to clean everything up.
Just for fun here's a couple bad phone pics of what my room looks like right now..
Needless to say I have a lot of work to do...
