Storing Your Classroom Supplies

Last summer, I spent a lot of timing doing what I do best… organizing classroom supplies!
I was able to sort through all of the supplies in our closet, organize them in tubs, and label them with my adorable polka dot labels! The extra supplies stayed in our supply closet, and we were able to easily refill our table caddies when needed. But the labels that I haphazardly taped onto the inside of the tubs didn’t hold up so well! So you can imagine my relief when Scotch introduced their brand new Self-Seal Laminating Pouches {no machine needed!!!}
I was really excited when Scotch asked me to try them out, and I just LOVE how they turned out!
First, I reprinted and cut apart my supply labels. I printed the labels onto card stock so that they’re a little thicker than regular paper, and in turn, more durable.
I tried fitting the labels into the smaller laminating pouches, but they were too small. So I went with the Bag Tags instead. The directions on the laminating pouches were super easy to follow and it took me about 2 seconds to “laminate” each label.
{had to get Ringy in the picture ;)}
The pouch stuck together without having to use any hot machine! It was awesome!
{See the little loop for the tag? I just trimmed it right off!}
After I laminated each label, I used double sided tape to adhere it to the outside of the tub. This will really help its lifespan as I remove and add supplies all year long!
I am now organized and ready for another new year 🙂

  1. Cute! I have your whole back-to-school packet, so I believe that means I already have these adorable labels at my disposal! Need to just stock up on plastic shoebox bins now. 🙂 Thanks for the ideas!

  3. I always thought I needed a laminator to use those! Gotta get me some next time I'm out. Thanks for sharing 🙂
