School and Craft Supply Organization Hint #3: Repurpose Drink Carriers
A local restaurant where we get half-price drinks every once in a while (well, maybe more often that that… 🙂 ) has some heavy-duty drink carriers. They are perfect for storing craft supplies! I also like how they have a handle, so I can carry them wherever we choose to do school (inside, outside, upstairs, downstairs, etc.).
So far, I’ve made two of them: One is a calendar organizer and the other is a reading workshop organizer. I’m working on a math minute organizer next!
I used some scrapbook paper I picked up from Target in the $1 bin a few years ago to decorate one of the organizers. The other is not too fancy, but it works for me! I’ve also covered them in contact paper, so hopefully they will last longer!
