Help...How Do You Store Your Centers and TPT Sale Continues

I have been going to school to try to clean out my January files to update them with some new things.  I feel like I keep buying storage things and spending a lot of money trying to get organized.  You would think after 25 years that I would be the queen of organizing, but part of the problem is I keep buying/making new things!!  I have found  pockets at Staples, but they are costing me a fortune!!  What do you use for storing your centers when you are not using them.  I have the Cropper Hopper storage bins for the kids to use when they are using the centers, but my problem is what to do after I am done with them.  I am a "pitcher" so I do get rid of a lot of old.  I would love to see/hear how you store your centers.
Don't forget that our 20% off TPT sale continues through Monday.  Check out all of our fun January units on our last 2 posts.

Most Winter Math and Literacy Units Are Completed


I went into school today to do some cleaning and organizing.  Each year I am always there the night before we go back late at night wishing I didn't wait until the last minute.

SueBeth and I have been working for the past couple of weeks to finish up our winter literacy and math units for January.  We have been creating to do lists, crossing things off of that to do list that are finished, and of course adding 3 more units when we cross one off...so who knows when we will ever stop!!

Do you have this problem of creating to do lists and either losing them or finding that they never end?



I tried to get my husband, my son Jacob(22 years old), and my daughter Jordan(18 years old) to pose for these units since I have not used them yet in January, but for some reason when I mentioned that...everyone left me and told me sorry.  So, my pictures are what I took of the units in my basement.  I promise better pictures of our units will come once we get back to school.

Merry Christmas

We wanted to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas.  We have some great January Units that we will be sharing.  We will be sharing pictures and some freebies with you starting early next week!

You can tell my kids are older(ages 22 and 18)...they just made a management decision that they want to open gifts after our 10:30 church service so that they can sleep in and enjoy Christmas!  My husband and I said we can remember the days when we were up at the crack of dawn!! 

Merry Christmas!!
