Have a General "Lost" bucket. love this idea, I don't know how many times a day students bring me a pencil or marker that they found on the floor. when someone doesn't have something, go grab from the lost bucket!
This would work great for my boys thousands of match box cars. Use spray paint and a pretty polka dot label- great storage idea for the MILLION matchbox cars and small toys in our playroom! LOVE THIS IDEA for repurposing my empty coffee cans.
Use milk bottles for pencil storage Recycle plastic milk bottles in to pencil holders. Grab a craft knife and recycle your large plastic milk bottles in to pencil holders. Extra points if you go all OCD and file them by colour.
Milk crates zip-tied together on their sides so that a bench seat fits on top and red bins from Lowe's can slide inside them. I don't have any milk crates, though. I also don't know what "zip-tied" means. I would use different colors.
