There’s no doubt about it – I have been a fairly bad blogger over the past couple of weeks. In fact, this last week I really had no excuse. It was spring break, I was in Boston doing not much, and I really could (and should) have posted. But maybe now?
I have taken the past few days to do a sort of spring cleaning. I change student teaching placements tomorrow, meaning I get a fresh start and I thought that I could use that in some other areas of my life, too.
Step 1: Get more organizing space and label appropriately.
|Not particularly pretty, but it does the job.|
Step 2: Fill with materials by purpose
|You know you’re a language arts teacher when you organize your shelves like this …|
Step 3: Enjoy more floorspace!
Doing this seriously cleared up the amount of space I have in my living room. It’s not perfect – I really need more drawers so that I can itemize my arts and crafts supplies – but it works for right now.
What kind of spring cleaning are you doing?
PS. The first picture of the shelves is from Target’s website, and the second one is a picture that I took. My shelves are from Target, too!
