Hello and welcome to another post of #31daysofkindergarten…but this one is a surprise guest post from Dollar Tree Classrooms! It’s almost time for school to be back in session and while there are many unknowns, Jaime and Kelly are here to share Individual Student Supply Storage Ideas. I hope you love this post!
Hi! We are Kelly Haynes and Jamie V. from DollarTree Classrooms on Instagram! Kelly is currently a kindergarten teacher in Kentucky and she has taught Kindergarten for 16 years. Jamie is a reading specialist in Michigan and has also taught for 16 years. We work together to collate classroom inspiration…one dollar at a time!
We are excited to take over this blog post for the day and share our favorite Individual Student Supply Storage Ideas using items from the Dollar Tree. This year back to school will look a little different for most of us and our storage needs might be different too. Keep reading for our top 3 favorite storage tips for your classroom or home-school.
The first storage idea we’ve found is this new bin from Dollar Tree that will work great for individual student supplies! Click on the picture for an affiliate link if you’d like to purchase them. This bin will fit a pack of crayons, a pencil, and even a glue stick and scissors. Different grade levels require different supplies, and this bin is very versatile. The best part about these bins are that they snap shut and have a handle. Perfect for little hands to carry around the classroom or in and out of their desk. See below for these bins in action.

We also loooove, love, looooove the book bins from Dollar Tree. Yes, they are one dollar and they hold lots of books! We love when our students self select books to read in the classroom, and these book bins make it easy to store them in and to carry around the classroom if they need to. They are available in brights and pastels this season. We love the variety and price on these book bins that slide together to help them from falling over when they are full of books or materials. If you are not in need of individual book bins for students, these bins could be used for supplies, or classroom library books. The possibilities are endless.

Finally, and probably our most favorite Individual Student Supply Storage Ideas solution using Dollar Tree materials are these colorful lock top lid containers. They are small, but mighty. The lock top lid is the best because it’s easy for students to open, but when it’s closed, you can guarantee nothing will fall out! We use these containers for crayons, mini erasers, counters, mini pencils, magnetic letters, and more. These are a great bargain for individual storage with the 2 pack and BONUS 3 pack options that are available at the Dollar Tree. Images contain affiliate links for the containers and a link to purchase the labels.
That is a wrap for day 7 of #31daysofkindergarten here on my blog! Thank you Jaime & Kelly for guest posting today! I love the simple and inexpensive ideas you share for Individual Student Supply Storage. 🙂 In case you missed the previous posts in this series…
