Tip # 6 Inventory Your Classroom

TIP # 6: Inventory the items you have decided to keep.

Inventory the items that remain.

I realize this seems like it might be a bit overboard, but hear me out. Creating an inventory will allow you to best select storage containers when you get to that step. The other reason to do this is so that you will have an inventory of your classroom items in the event of a fire, flood or other disaster. Should anything happen to your classroom, you will need this for insurance purposes. Make a copy of the list for your files (leave at home) and a copy that you can take with you when you are looking for storage containers (which we'll talk about soon).

How is your decluttering going? Have you been able to part with anything that you originally thought you should keep?
