1. I purchased a Thirty-One bag a couple of years ago and it's helped me stay organized from school to home. There is a file organizer in my bag so that my papers stay where they need to be. If I print masters at home, I can place them right into my "To Copy" file and have them ready to go when I get to school. I can also keep my highlighters, markers, pens and pencils in the seven pockets so I can plan or grade wherever I am. It's a life saver!
2. Teacher Toolbox
My teacher toolbox has been a great addition to my classroom! I already took it in to school and filled it up. It's so nice knowing where everything is the moment I need something. No more running all over the room looking for paper clips or digging around in my desk.
3. To Do Drawers
These are another great idea I saw many teachers creating. The idea behind them is a similar to my Thirty-One bag, except it's meant to be at school. I'm looking forward to using this one!

I am hoping to get these drawers made before school starts.
5. Box Tops Container
When my kids would bring in their Box Tops, I would end up placing them anywhere near the spot when they were handed to me. This resulted in me losing a bunch. Now that I have this container in class, the kids walk through the door and straight to the container! They are also excited about bringing them in because they wanted to put them in here:
