New Storage

I'm just following the trend I guess. How do you follow your favourite blogs? I was using Google Reader, but it will be shutting down soon... So I'm switching over to Bloglovin. Go check it out!

I am on Spring Break and it is fantastic! I had an early Easter supper with my family and one on Friday with the bf's family. I get to see my baby niece (-in-law) who I haven't seen since Christmas! She's only about four months old and such a cutie! Can't wait to do some baby cheek squishing!

So I've been doing a lot of Spring cleaning and school stuff organizing. Want to see what I did? Well this was before...

I had sorted all my monthly themes and books into these boxes. I loved this system, however some of the boxes were starting to burst at the seams. So I decided to splurge and upgrade from cardboard boxes to actual plastic storage containers. When I saw these blue and purple Rubbermaid Clever Store containers I was in love with the sizes and colours! The large blue ones are 32

I might have gone a little overboard, but I separated all my themes and holidays into their own container. I put all my read alouds, activities, worksheets, stuffed animals, posters, etc. that go with that theme. They are all in my office at home right now... Am I a nerd for getting excited about organizing?? I just love how they all look! Even my largest picture books fit nicely in the bottom of these containers.

I added a few more tubs after this picture was taken. Don't tell the bf! :)

Happy Spring Break, or Almost Spring Break, or After Spring Break!


  1. I now have an organizational crush on those boxes. I'm on spring break this week and I now feel less than constructive, haha.

  2. <3 <3 <3 the containers!! Ahhh, sweet organization. And I LOVE that on your labels you used capital letters with that cute, adorable capital letter-less font!! After viewing this post, you are officially my favorite person. :D

  3. I love your labels! Would you be willing to share your new theme labels from this post? If you would be willing to send them my way, my email is I use your labels so much in my classroom :) Thanks!!
