    Marsha...check with a bread company. They may be able to donate some old
    stackable bread shelves which would hold the boxes. We have a used bread
    store nearby and that would be a good place to see what I'm talking about.

    Subject: Classroom organization question

    >As you have read, I am inheriting a SMALL room that will be home to about
    >students per class. The HS kids keep their required art supplies in the
    >artroom, in plastic shoeboxes, sweater boxes, etc (whatever they can come
    >with). One kid even brought in a big, flip top storage bin. Due to lack of
    >space, they put these boxes everywhere they can find space, even in the
    >supply cabinets. The room is a maze of clutter everywhere that only makes
    >sense to the present teacher. There is a 9 foot base cabinet and wall
    > by the two sinks. The rest of the room is portable open shelves or metal
    >cabinets. Remember, this is a hummock room.
    >I need a solution. I am one of these slightly "anal" organized people
    > clutter confuses me and I get lost in it. I think it was Bunki who had an
    >idea of using soda cartons as trays, for student's supplies. Explain in
    >detail, Bunk. Question: Where are these stacked? I would have to do the
    >carpentry myself ( I have no great gifting in this) so I need an easy
    >solution. I need room for about 40 student's art materials.
