Organization Tip 101 is to use clear storage containers so you can see what is inside.
My inner self battles about this. I see the logic. I also hate to see the clutter through the box.
But I do love me some plastic drawers (especially the kind that slide out all the way). I use them for organizing my math workshop games and manipulatives. I use them for my emergency sub plans. I use them all. over. my. house!
So I love the idea of making them all kinds of cute and colorful with some scrapbook paper.
If you do decide to cover your clear storage containers then please, please, pretty please get your label on. It will make your life much easier.
