Organization Overload...

Day two of Counting Our Blessings and Looking Ahead Professional Resolutions Week!  Today Hope King at Second Grade Shenanigans is hosting and she is Oh.So.Cute!

I've been inspired by pinterest and eager to get working on these ideas during our upcoming teacher planning day in January!

I'm adding one last inspired idea.  I hate cords around desk.  Drives.ME.Nuts! This picture was featured by Kevin Sharkey of Martha Stewart's Website.  I added tablecloths under my technology work station but I kick the cords when I sit at the hub.  My fingers and toes are crossed that this will be the solution I need!

Thanks for the ideas! I have a tiny classroom so it's so important to stay organized. These are some great ideas! I have so many chords around my desk and anchor charts coming out of my ears, so I can definitely use these ideas. Thanks!
