Yep. I keep brushes in a big metal coffee can (sprayed blue) on my desk.
When everyone has a brush, I put them away under my desk. They literally
have to hand the brush to me because there is no where else to put the
brush. I also stroll over to the sinks just before the bell to make sure
some dodo brain hasn't laid one in the sink by accident or design. Believe
it or not, I still have the same set of 45 brushes I bought 8 years ago.
I'm a witch (with a capitol "B") about these little bushy sticks! They are
STILL in great condition. I've just got a "thing" about my classroom
brushes, pencils, and erasers. Call me "uptight" but I never seem to have
these three items missing or dirty. Toodles......
