In this blog, you will find mind-blowing tips to make packing your classroom SO much easier! I dreaded post-planning days filled with organizing, cleaning, and moving. BUT thankfully, I figured out a pretty neat system to keep things organized during the school year that cuts packing time in half! 

Whether you have a plethora of books scattered by categories of seasons, holidays, and subjects, you can quickly get these sorted and KEEP them sorted for years to come. It’s one of my favorite hacks that I learned from a fellow teacher, and I share it with everyone I can!
