Organize Your Stickers!

After four years of searching and digging for the right sticker, I finally, finally organized my sticker collection!!
I decided I wanted to go the binder route, and as luck would have it, I had an empty one in my basement.  I stopped at Staples on my way home and picked up these dividers:
They are double pocket plastic dividers from Avery {8 tabs}, and they came to about $7.  I popped them in the binder and labeled them:
*September
*October
*November
*December
*January/February
*March/April
*May/June
*Misc.
Sorry for the glare! I had a photoshoot in my living room and that's the best I could do!
Maybe in the future I'd buy more and separate months, or organize by holiday, but as of right now, this division works perfectly for me.  It's a good start... considering this is what I was dealing with:
::Shudder::

Today my little ones made their Mother's Day projects:
Aren't they delicous looking?? :P
If you're looking for a last minute Mother's Day project, or just something fun to make in addition to what you already have, check these out in my TpT shop...
I also have a matching Father's Day project:
Quick! Everything is still on sale in my shop until midnight tonight!!! :)

Love the organization of your stickers! I also have a basket that is junked up with stickers...definitely will be stealing your idea=)

My kiddo's also made your Mother's Day craftivity today! I was out of the room this afternoon for strategic planning with my team. I thought this would be something fun and easy for the substitute to do with them. They turned out really cute. I copied the icecream on different colors. We had pink "strawberry" flavored icecream, pale green "mint" icecream, and purple "raspberry" icecream. Definitely LOVE this craft and will do again next year!

Those dividers are the best! I use them in all my binders, but I never thought to put stickers in a binder. What a great idea! Mine are still in the bucket...very similar to yours.

And those Mother's/Father's Day cards are so cool!

I love how organised you are and how you label the stickers according to months too so you can get the right themed stickers out.

GREAT idea. I bought small containers from the Dollar Store and sorted by themes. I put a couple of containers out when correcting papers and the kids pick the sticker they want.

That is so smart with your stickers!! The teacher who retired out of my classroom left me obscene amounts of stickers and I just today found some 100th Day stickers.... only 3 months too late, haha!

Marvelous Multiagers!

Sarah Hankinson said...

I've been teaching for 10 years and feel I am very organized ... except for my stickers! This is a fabulous idea and I worked on it today while my children were making their Mother's Day gifts. Thanks for a great idea!
