I went to buy magazine file storage containers to organize my teaching curriculum books and realized how expensive they are. I never paid attention before because at Ikea you can get 5 for $1.99. Ikea is an hour and half away from Milwaukee so I had to hunt them down elsewhere. Knowing that I have gotten them for so much less over the past 10 years, it forced me to be creative. I took extra boxes I had, instead of recycling them, I REUSED them. I cut them down like a magazine file storage container, then spray painted them the colors I wanted. The final product, was very sturdy but cute Magazine storage containers.
