    Hey, Marsh. I took everything out of my cabinets in my room.....I do have a
    very small storage room off my classroom...and put everything there...and in
    other nooks, crannies. I bought big black plastic units to hide things in
    for around the room. Doesn't look so cluttered. For the cabinets I make very
    thin shelves (I'm pinching my fingers together now)...umm...about 4 inches
    apart. Just big enough to lay a soda box flat in. I can get about 40-45
    separate "cubbies" in each cabinet with room to spare in each cabinet. Every
    student in my 6 classes has their own cubby and it makes it great for both
    of us...when the kids are absent, I can get their work to grade or if
    they're absent, I can return work the same way. The first project of the
    rotation/or year is name tags for their boxes. Such a time-saver.

    If I didn't have ready-made shelves, I would STILL make some sorta shelving the concrete blks. someone mentioned earlier...with really thin
    spaces and do the same soda box thing. It has made doing things so much
    easier for me. Toodles....Bunk
