Classroom Organization: Storing Colored Copy Paper for Notebooking

For the last Bright Ideas Link, I shared how I store all my interactive foldable graphic organizers that I use in our notebooks. Doing all those organizers means that I need a lot of colored paper. I try to buy paper whenever I see it on sale. I can get pastel paper from my district, but I like to have a variety of colors (probably stems from my years of scrapbooking, LOL!)

I found these containers at Staples that I thought would work perfectly (they were on clearance).  I made a sign to fit on the front that would tell me the colors inside and it has a lid which will keep the dust off of the paper.

Of course, I store them in ROY G BIV order!!
