  1. This was not sheepish at all!! I love this idea. I always struggle with it also because of the lack of storage space. This works so well and the dots look adorable. My whole room is red and black polka dots (ladybugs) so even the dots work well for me.

  2. You don't give yourself enough credit! I love this idea! I already pinned it to remind myself as one of my "to-do" lists for my spring break. 🙂
    Thank you for sharing a simple, yet helpful tip!

  3. This is a wonderful idea! I literally laughed out loud when you decided to just close the cabinet door and ask if anyone remembered something from months prior. I'm also quite guilty of doing this! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Oh my gosh, how can you not think this is a super bright idea??? I love it!! The use (and decoration!) of the trash bin is so smart and the labels make it so easy to find them…wow!!!!!

    Thank you Mary! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  5. You have no reason to feel sheepish, that is a super bright idea! I love it!!!

    Thanks for sharing.

  6. When I first saw this I didn't realize that you had simply rolled them and put a rubber band around them! I thought they were in poster tubes, and I was trying to visualize in my mind how big the poster tubes at Walmart were. I thought it was a good idea before, now I think this is a fabulous idea! I really like your dots, too! I can't wait to check out our local Hobby Lobby and see what kind of assortment they have! Thanks for the idea!


  7. This is definitely a bright idea! I struggle with storing my charts and this is a great solution. Thank you for sharing it with us!


  8. This is amazing! I am always looking for ways to store my charts. This seems perfect (and cheap)!

  9. Great idea! My charts are always a mess, I feel like I spend so much time making them, and then we always manage to destroy them! Thanks for sharing.

  10. When I saw the color-coded labels, I actually said out loud, "Ahhhh…" I love this! Makes so much sense.

  12. What a wonderful idea! I will definitely be passing this post along to my teacher friends!

  13. Sheepish-NO! Brilliant-YES!! Can't believe I never thought to label my posters and anchor charts. I love the brilliance of simplicity Everytime!

  14. Can you post examples of your anchor charts? As a new teacher in English and math I need all the help I can get!

  15. Great idea! I roll mine up and secure them with toilet paper rolls covered in scrapbook paper. I have been looking for a better way to store them than my ratty old paper box.

  16. The colors on the anchor chart title label are the colors in my room. Would you mind sharing the label with us or sending it over to me? I would really love to use it. My email is kspearil4[at]gmail.com if you wouldn't mind. Thanks for the great idea!

  17. Great idea! I bought my trashcan today. I would love to have your title label also. My email is jodesta717[at]gmail.com. Thanks! 🙂

  18. Love this idea! Could you share the sign for the front with me as well? Wthrasher80[at]gmail.com

  19. Neat, organized, easy to find and cute…..a simple, but effective fix! I love the colored stickers for keeping Math and Reading separate!
