New Chair Pockets!

So you may remember from before that I had bought book sox for chair pockets. WELL, it was becoming a bit of a disaster. A few of them broke, and so we had small piles of students things in various corners in the room, and when I went to get more book sox, they only had the smaller size. So.... I bought them.... and they broke within a couple of days. SIGH.
I got frustrated, I looked at those little piles of student things and I became obsessed. I would try to organize, them, I would tell the kids to organize them, I would look at them, and then I began to loathe the little piles that soon turned into heaps of things.
I took the big step. GULP I bought those really expensive chair pockets that I had vowed at the beginning of the year not to buy because, oh the book sox will work so well.
 I am now officially a happily organized and obsessive free (well for this anyway) first grade teacher. They are beautiful. They fit everything, I don't even need my name tags on desks anymore because they go in the back of chair pockets. There are no more growing mountains of things popping out of corners.

SIGH, so happy! Now to avoid showing the hubby my credit card bill. . .

  2. We don't have an optional place for outr coats so I've never been able to try them. I've had to come up with other ideas, but I like the looks of your arrangement. Good luck with it!
