How to Create Storage in the Classroom

Are you looking to add additional storage in your classroom? This DIY project could help teachers solve the problem of not having storage space for student coats and backpacks.

I often get emails asking for advice on how to handle student coats and backpacks in a classroom without cubbies or lockers. I did blog about it here, but wanted to share this idea because I immediately thought of all those readers when I saw it. 

It's simply buckets with holes drilled and cable ties. It would take up a bit of a "footprint," but might be a nice option. I could also see it being created using smaller buckets and used to store math manipulatives like interlocking cubes, pattern blocks, etc.
