Great news! I just found a new blog and this will help me control the clutter. Having a contest give-away. Take a look yourself.
One new clutter helper that I used this year was to color coordinate my daily folders that I contained each day's activities. Using some sturdy dividers that I bought several years ago from Really Good Stuff (on close-out), I placed graphics on the folders for the subject areas.
I placed them in a crate and placed six crates on my teacher desk. Now I cannot pile anything on my desk because it is only for filing.
I really think I am the queen of plastic storage devices. I may have to develop a BA (baskets anonymous!)
