Five for Friday!

Happy Friday Friends!

 Today, I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday!

This week I finally completed Chalk Dust Decor: A Chevron and Chalkboard Classroom Decor Set! This is the first of seven different color sets I plan to release throughout the summer. Click the link above or the picture below to check it out!

Hooray! My package is on its way! I placed an order for my very first Erin Condren Lesson Planner a few weeks ago and I'm anxiously patiently awaiting its arrival.

I came across these fun colored book bins in the Target dollar spot a few days ago. I'm sure they won't last long so don't say I didn't warn you!

This week I hit the jackpot of all yard sales! This lady taught for 18 years and this is only about a third of what she had to sell!

I hate to admit it, but my house is officially bursting at the seams with all the stuff that I am collecting for my future classroom (especially books). I have books stored under beds, couches, and in multiple storage containers. Since I will begin student teaching this fall, I will need quick and easy access to all of my books to supplement my lessons.

After many hours on Pinterest and a lot of consideration I came up with the perfect solution. These ice cube bins make great book bins! They are just the right size for browsing and storing an entire series of books without being too bulky.
In addition, this summer I will be making a trip to Ikea to pick up two of these
and one of these
I ultimately plan to create a bench like the one below to serve a dual purpose of seating and storage.
What do you think? Do you have any storage tips you would like to share?

Have a Great Weekend!
