This post includes Amazon Affiliate LinksOrganizing! It’s not really my strong suite…you know all those Type A SLPs that have everything in order? Yeah, I’m not one of those. I do my best, but usually just get overwhelmed…I don’t find it fun to organize my stuff. I had a system that worked for me for a few years, but since then it has stopped working and I needed something new. So I spent a ridiculous amount hours reorganizing my speech life and I happy to say…I did it! Check it out…
My friend Gabrielle over at Teaching Special Thinkers had these awesome monthly bin labels, which worked perfect with the file boxes I already had. I converted from seasonal boxes to monthly with those. Then I added some smaller boxes with general themes that I use throughout the year that don’t necessarily align to a monthly theme. I found both of these boxes at Walmart for not too big price tags, but you can also get them on Amazon. Let’s peek inside…
Inside my monthly boxes, I have everything that is seasonal…crafts, TPT products, worksheets, etc. in hanging file folders. I hope to organize these further as I get to each month, but who knows #typeBforever
The smaller boxes have bags of whatever belongs. I’m a big fan of Ziploc. Or whatever store brand happens to be available that day.
Of course not everything I have belongs in any other of those boxes, I have some general activities that I need quick access to, so I got three rolling carts and printed (on brightly colored paper) categories of materials. This mostly TPT products or other random things.
Whew! Not bad, if I do say so myself! I’m pretty excited to have everything organized and ready for a new year. I feel like I know more about what I have with this system too.
Be on the lookout, next on the blog will be my theme therapy calendar for the year and an updated SLP planner! I know several of you are anxious for it and I promise I’m working hard for you 🙂
What do you do to help yourself get prepped for the next year?
