I really like to be organized, but sometimes it takes me a LONG time to figure out how to best organize things. I saw a really neat idea last year to help me organize our school supplies. I don't know where I found it, but it suggested hanging a plastic shoe holder over the back of the door in our school room/Ethan's bedroom to house the school supplies. Well, that was a great idea but it has been SOOO disorganized ever since. I truly wish I took a before picture but I forgot to. I thought about restaging it but decided that would take too long. :)
So this summer I decided it was time to make this organizer worthwhile.
I also had several of the little pencil boxes that I could put in the plastic holders, but I also had several of these due to my boys' love of strawberry milk...
And I thought they would be the perfect size to hold pencils, markers, pens, etc...
When I was cleaning & organizing this summer, I decided it would look so much nicer if I covered those & I just so happened to have a roll of that clear contact paper & some yellow construction paper. I cut it to size & covered those containers!
I also printed 2 labels for each container...one for container & one for the slot it goes on in the shoe holder.
I was pretty pleased with the results.
