How to Increase Storage in Your Classroom Using Hanging Files

Do you need more storage space in your classroom? This DIY project for teachers will show you how to create hanging files to organize your paper.

One of the best space-saving tips is to make the use of vertical space. For that reason I'm totally crushing on these DIY hanging file folders. They would be great on the back of a closet door to make use of wasted space. They would work (in a shorter version of course) on the side of a desk or file cabinet. They could be used to house papers, games, etc for centers. I could also see them being useful for keeping resources (hundred charts, portable word walls, etc) within reach.

Best of all...they can be customized to match your classroom theme or color scheme and they are far more cost-effective than buying the manufactured pocket charts.
