$1 Organization Idea!

If you're like me, you LOVE buying things for as cheap as possible! This is exactly why I love The Dollar Tree.  I think it's safe to say that I take a trip there at least every few days.  Well, I drove home to Long Island yesterday, and of course, I just had to see if this Dollar Tree had anything different from mine in CT. I am so happy I did, because I stumbled upon a great organizational tip that is going to help me so much this year {and hopefully you, too!}.

Say hello to 2 for $1 snack tupperware.

I was immediately drawn to them because of their bright color {and the fact that there was a large hot pink one on the same shelf}, but as soon as I saw them, I knew exactly what I was going to use them for! Can you guess?


If you guessed playing cards, you're right! Do you just have organizational anxiety over how those little boxes rip almost instantly when they get into the hands of young students? Or how the students can't exactly seem to fit all of the cards back in the box? Well, I do! These tupperware are a PERFECT fit for playing cards, which I use all the time in my guided math stations. I also love how they have clips on the sides so that the tops won't fall off if the containers fall. The clips are big enough for little hands to easily use, so that's a plus, too! Need one more reason to run out to The Dollar Tree and buy these? Here you go..

They stack!!!! How nice and neat is that little pile? I can literally fit this pile anywhere! I cannot wait to use these in my classroom.  I could even use these to store the math manipulatives that my students need in their guided math stations so that they don't have to roll all over the bottom of the large bins that I use.  Maybe I'll have to go out and get some more! Do you have any cheap organization tips? Leave me a comment!

Happy organizing!
