Organize your Room - Board Games

Every summer I spend my Sundays going to a flea market down the street from my house called Jake's.  I've been going there since I was little, because my mother is a flea market fanatic.  I don't think she has ever bought anything at full price.   So naturally I have become a die-hard bargain hunter.  This has come in handy since I became a teacher.  Approximately 90% of my classroom is made up of the wonderful bargains I find at my local flea market.

This Sunday, I was on the hunt for board games.  I don't know why but my students hoot and hollar with joy when we have indoor recess.  Honestly, as a teacher, I tend to enjoy indoor recess too.  I love watching them interact together and I can get a little bit of work done.  Unlike recess duty on the playground where I am in full-on observation mode and ready to lose my cool when I have to blow my whistle for students walking up the slide like 5 times per recess!

Anyway, the inspiration for my new hunt is the realization that many of the game pieces are missing in my classroom and those old boxes drive me absolutely insane.  I saw a nifty little picture on pinterest of a great way to organize games and I plan to do it in my room.  You could also do this in your own home too.  So obviously I can't take credit for the idea, but I definitely be using it!  If you click on the picture it will take you to the website that has even more ideas for using old baby wipe containers.



  1. I do this too! It is such a great idea! =)

  2. This is a brilliant idea. Every single component of a board game is very important, and once you lose a single piece, there would be no game already. In order to keep the game whole, the best thing to do is to keep your board games organized and in a safe place every time you’re not using them.
