Today I am sharing a tip I learned from one of my colleagues, Mrs. Bevacqua. Check out these great book boxes she made for just pennies!
She picked up shipping boxes from the Post Office (or you can buy them really cheap, even use cereal boxes). She then assembled the boxes and used a razor knife to cut the boxes at an angle. One shipping box gives you two book boxes. My partner teacher painted her boxes to match. It was cheap and easy! You could also use duct tape.
Another quick tip, label the boxes with numbers instead of names. Then you are good to go for the following year!
I'm still holding out hope that my Helpful Hints on Hump Day will take off. Freebies are great, but I really love reading great blog posts with helpful information. Sometimes the smallest tip or "why didn't I think of that" makes the biggest difference. So join me and share those little tips!
