It's the little things that make great ideas!

I had purchased the magazine/file bins for $1 at Target. I love them, but I had a dilemma; I didn't want to tape labels to them and ruin the bins. I will be using them for students' journals, books, and leveled readers. So, I hot glued mini clothes pins to the back and will be putting frog name tags on those. Problem solved!

  2. That is cute and smart! I agree, the little things do really make a difference :)

  3. One thing that I did for my mailboxes, were small plastic doo-hickeys lol then you can slide in different names. I looked for only a second, but I know that I got them at Office Max. They were maybe 2-3 inches long.


  4. I bought the SAME ones!! I was going to tape the childrens pictures on them when they got to school so they could use them for books. Thank you so much for your idea!! Now I'll be able to use and reuse!!

  5. Too cute!! Good idea of how to save them for next year!!
