    Thanks for the post – I’m going to use the plastic book bin in my kitchen cabinet. My lids are always falling!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re so welcome! LOVE that idea! I may try that! Thanks for the suggestion!

    I use their binder calendars every year!!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      SWEET! Thanks for sharing, Marie! Glad to hear they have been useful each year!

    They also have these small snap lid containers that are coveted by all teachers. They perfectly fit a 24 box of crayons or deck of cards. They come in both 2 and 3 packs and are usually with the school supply stuff up front. Very hard to find class sets but if you do.. snatch them up!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh cool! Thanks for the tip! We’ll have to keep an eye out for those too!

    The prices at Staples right now are better on some of these items such as EXPO markers. We got a package of 5 for $3.

  5. Denver

    Great idea to use book bin for lids.

    Dollar Tree = Treasure Hunt (!)
