Organizing and Storing Small Items in the Classroom

 On my quest to try to organize our little classroom to make my life a little easier. I came across the Gerber plastic baby food containers. I was looking for something to organize my Geo-board rubber bands and my All About Spelling marker chips and many other small manipulative's that I wanted to keep in a specific location. Originally, I was using small plastic jewelry bags. Overall they worked okay, but they kinda get lost in my drawer. I was having to take out the larger items to find the items in the bag on the bottom of the drawer. Sometimes when the kids put them away well they don't get closed properly and end up spilling all over the drawer.

They are the perfect size for my drawers, stack easily and they don't come open easily and dump out. The best part is they don't get lost at the bottom of the drawer. I tried a few different containers that I had on- hand and they were too bulky for my drawer. The best part is that I am re-using something I already have on-hand. Unfortunately, I have thrown out quite a few before I discovered their usefulness. Have fun organizing! Many blessing and have a wonderful day.
