How to Organize Your Classroom with Storage Bins

The first thing you’ll want to do is look at the amount of space you will have to work with. If your classroom is filled with bookshelves, cubbies, and wall space, then you’ll have lots of room for storage bins. Even if you don’t have lots of shelves or storage space, you can still utilize several storage bin options.

Next, consider how you want your storage spaces to look. This can also include if you want a particular color theme. The Dollar Tree offers solutions in solid colors, pastel colors, translucent, and more. Regardless of what you choose, it’s also a great idea to purchase labels so you will know what’s inside of the storage boxes, bins, and baskets that you choose to use.

Once you’ve figured out space and purchased what you want to fill it with, all that’s left is to decorate! Be sure to introduce your students to your organization setup so they are familiar with where to put things (back) when they use them. This will also help keep your classroom clean!
