Optimum Organization Linky Party!

  1. Kristen–thanks so much for doing this! I can't wait to see everyone's systems and ideas. You are, of course, my hero in this department, so I was so excited to see what you posted.

      Thanks Heather and thanks for linking up!! I think you had WAY more to share than I did and I learned a lot from you πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  2. Diane R says:

    I think that I will have to break down and make a toolbox. With increasing enrollment for next year, I'll have to cram more desks into my room and downsize some things. Maybe my desk is one thing that I can reassess. Were those labels something that you shared with us? Last summer I had no interest in these, so I didn't pay much attention. Guess that will teach me…

    Thank you again for hosting this linky. It has been an emotionally tough week for me so far, so this linky was truly a highlight of my week. That may sound weird, but sometimes it's the little things πŸ˜‰

    Thanks for all that you do!

    Love your labels! How did you get them so small on the organization drawers?

    What I Have Learned

  4. ooOOO I just LOVE your stationary supply container! It's such a perfect size and so adorable with the labels. I love looking at everyone else's awesome ideas so can't wait to look at the other links πŸ™‚

    Thank you!

    I don't think I could live without my toolbox! I love the idea of having one for the kids for writing supplies. I think I might adapt that to math supplies for my class!! Great idea. I have always loved your labels for everything!!! I really am leaning towards the labeled bins for students. I think I could avoid a lot of clutter around the room if I took the plunge and bought them. (I think I just added this to my to-do list!) Thanks for co-hosting with me, Bloggy Bud! I can't wait to see what everyone adds. I'm loving every post so far…that to-do list is a-growin'. πŸ™‚

    Great linky Kristen, you know I love all things organization πŸ™‚
    I love your toolbox, but the only reason I haven't made one is because I would need larger drawers, I know I shouldn't have so many sharpies, post its, etc. but I do :/ Hmmm, is there a downsize linky in the future?

    Hi there. I remember everyone was making these last year. I didn't, but totally think I need to for next year. Where do you buy the toolbox? Is there a certain kind to buy? Why does everyone spray paint them? Sorry for all the questions, but if I'm going to do it…I've gotta do it right! πŸ™‚

  14. belle716 says:

    Kristen, I love the labels for the sterlite drawers. I use them on my mailboxes. I see you ave to different labels on those drawers. Did you share both files or just the one? If it was both, can you tell me where to find them? Thanks!


  15. Rochelle Em says:

    This is great! I am wanting to start fresh next year with fancy teacher labels for all of my containers. My husband is about to rue the day he bought a color printer πŸ˜‰

  16. Love this linky! Makes my OCD heart go pitter patter to see all this organization in one spot. ; ) Love my toolbox! Love it daily!

    Your toolbox label drawers are adorable! Where did you get them? I actually think I like leaving the drawers uncovered better than covering them with paper. I had almost decided against making the toolbox but now I may have to give it a go. Do you also have a teacher desk?

  24. I love your toolbox and think that is a project I will have to tackle this summer! I used your drawer labels this year, only I used them to label their books, my students have class numbers and I wrote their names on the little book label – they looked fantastic. Thanks so much for sharing your files and ideas. This is a great linky!

  25. Hi Kristen! The toolbox does look awesome! I will work on that for my classroom this coming year! I'd like to link up within the week if I can grab a minute to do a post on organization. πŸ™‚ As always, you do a fantastic job!

  26. I want to make the teacher toolbox, it's on my summer "to-do" list! I'm ridding myself of a desk next year & can't wait for this! Where did you get a toolbox like that with the different sized drawers?

  27. Rachel says:

    Where might I find that toolbox?

    I'm hooked!
