Pretty Table Bins for Back to School

What is it about brand new school supplies that gets me so excited? Especially new school supplies in bright colors that perfectly accent my classroom color scheme!
I recently snagged these beautiful caddies at Michael's for only $3.00 each!


I always use this type of bin as table boxes to hold my student's markers, glue bottles, and scissors but my current caddies are traditional colors (red, dark blue, yellow, and green). I love that these boxes came in neon/tropical colors. I have big plans for incorporating more bright colors into my classroom this year and these bins will be PERFECT! Eek! I am so thrilled about the changes in store for my classroom this year that I am practically jumping out of my seat as I type.

What school new classroom supply are you most excited about this summer?

  3. I love bright stuff too. Been using those bins for years, however last year I saw a great "no brainer" idea. Stick a little bit of velcro on the bottom of the cups if you put them in there to hold pencils, scissors, etc. and they don't fall over!!

  5. OOO I do too! I am off to pick up the pink! I have the primary colors and added orange and purple last year. I need ribbon at Micheal's anyway (for the notebook book marks I saw on pinterest), so I will be getting some new caddies too. Thanks for sharing the great find!

  6. I am loving those colors! I just thought to myself at the end of the year how I need to get new table caddies. I think I will head to Michael's. Is $3.00 the regular price? That would be a really good deal if I could use a 40% off coupon on those!

  8. This was my 2nd trip to a Michael's store. The first store only had about 4 colors. I was shocked and in love when I saw the full collection.

  14. I love these colorful caddies!!! I never liked the primary colors, so I stayed away from these, but these colors are so fun! With my luck, Michaels has already gotten rid of these and replaced all their fun back to school stuff with Halloween goodies, but I will still have to check!
