President's Day and Organization

A few weeks ago I was asked by a couple fellow bloggers how I store my centers when I'm not using them. It's not fancy but, it has worked well and it's not expensive. Labeled gift boxes ;) (I love gifts;) This is my newest unit on President's Day so I thought I share it with you and answer the question in one post. Each box has a label on the outside. Inside I keep all my centers (stored individually in a large baggy), blacklines and books I like to use with the theme of the center. It's nice to know that everything is ready to go on a moments notice and the blacklines are with everything for simplicity.

I'd love to hear how you organize and store your centers!!

I use plastic containers for my centers. Your unit looks great!

I like the box idea! I use plastic boxes - but they are heavy!! I need to have a BIG cleaning and purging on each box!

Thank you so much for letting us peak into your organization! I love that idea. Such a great accessible way to organize themes and stations.

I had everything in large manilla envelopes, all thrown into my filing cabinet. I need to find some gift boxes. I LOVE that idea. Best of all, they are affordable.

Thanks for all of your great ideas. I will definitely be taking advantage of your sale and buying the few things that I don't already own!!
