Oh man, that's genius!

I love pinterest, perhaps a little too much.  

But sometimes you stumble upon such brilliant, genius ideas that you want to bang your head against the wall and/or hide in shame.

After this teacher's great idea, I think the marker chaos will be solved once and for all:

All I need is multicolored dots from Target's school supply aisle.

I'll also match the dots to each table's supply bucket

Along with scissors, glue, pencils and more! Everything can be color coded :)

Plus, I can use smaller containers inside the supply containers to keep everything together:

The wrinkly bulletin board border problem will also be solved with binder clips and adhesive hooks:

Simply hang on a wall or inside a cabinet door to not only save space, but also stay organized and keep the expensive border nice and straight.

And for those pesky bulletin board letters:

I'm sure you have an old CD case laying around that can totally be upcycled :)

You can also make your own bulletin board letters with 8 1/2 x 11 inch scrapbook paper.  Simply choose the font and size in Word or Publisher, choose no fill and to outline, then print :)

(Do a test print first!)

Of course, you can always pick up letters at a variety of stores and when you use coupons, they aren't too expensive.  I'd recommend laminating the sheets for durability!

And for organizing supplies for dry erase boards, hot glue bins to the top of a magazine organizer:

Tada! Time to organize :)
