Teacher's Desk Organization

Lately I've been working on classroom organizing projects for my best friend. She had asked me to make a weekly drawer set and a copy, file, grade drawer set. We saw a few examples on Pinterest and she said this drawer system will be extremely helpful. So I when back to my Paintshop and created labels to match her toolbox. If you are wanting to make your own labels for these drawers, I used the dimensions 9.75"x2.5"

↓ My friend said she purchased these Sterilite 3-drawer organizers from Walmart. I used an ombre chevron pattern.

↓ Here's a closeup.

↓ Here are the copy, file, grade drawers. More chevron and some polka dots.
If any of you have more classroom organizing ideas PLEASE feel free to share them in the comments section!
Thank You!

What's In My Purse Tag + FREEBIE!

I thought this tag would be fun to do since no one sees what's inside my purse except basically me.

First things first, the purse I have been using ever since I gave birth to my baby is this Coach Signature Sateen Outline baby bag. I started using a Coach baby bag (from my sister) as a purse when I was pregnant because it was the perfect size for school (since I was still in college back then). After having a big purse it was hard for me to go back to a smaller purse so I purchased this bag online from coach.com. (no longer available)

↓ This is the inside:

↓ And here is the contents: 
wallet, my planner/calendar, baby mum mum (my daughter loves these), clorox wipes, coupon folder, cosmetic bag, sunglasses (cheap because my daughter always tries to break them), camera, and my keys.
(not much, I try to clean out my purse daily).

↓ Contents of my cosmetic bag (can you tell that I love Little Twin Stars and the color pink?): 
pack of tissues, Tokidoki hairbrush, Clear Eyes (for allergies/dry contacts), Sephora perfume atomizer (Dior Addict 2), Chapstick, Revlon lip butter (creme brulee), medicines (for allergies), feminine pads, mechanical pencil, pen, and hair pin.
It's FREEBIE time!!!

 I used a Mentos Gum container to hold my pills and medication. It just happened to be the perfect size for all the pills I carry around with me. Have fun up-cycling your Mentos Gum container or decorate your existing pill container.
 * If you are using a Mentos Gum container, resize image to 1.5" x 2.5"

For my feminine pads I used a Q-Tip travel pack container. At Target it was only $1! The label I made pretty much explains how I feel when "it's that time of the month". This idea would also be perfect for band-aids too!

So go for it! Copy then paste these images and start organizing your purse!
