Ready or not… it’s time for school again!  My kids are always excited to buy school supplies and I love school supply shopping with them.  This year I decided to do a little DIY project to keep our supplies more organized in an easy and frugal way.  Once it was finished we put all our supplies inside like Post-it® Note products and Scotch® Magic™ Tape.  I love the end result and I was glad to repurpose several things to make our DIY School Supply Station!   Our supplies usually get disorganized in a hurry and this will help my kids remember where it all belongs!

We bought all our school supplies this year at Walmart.  This is the isle where we found all the cool Post-it® Note supplies and I ended up buying several packs of them.  We love to use them for reminders, book page savers and I also love thePost-it® Durable Tabs for page finders too!  Post-it® Notes- sticks securely, yet removes cleanly.  I think they are a must have for any school age kid!

To make our little school supply station I laid everything out and played around with the items to see where I wanted them to be placed.  To make the little compartments inside the wooden tray I used a tissue box, cheese cracker box and a brownie mix box.  Then I covered them with scrapbook paper and used the Scotch® Magic™ Tape to hold it all together.  I also utilized some mason jars and the original marker box that I recovered as well.  I love how covering up the boxes makes everything look so uniform.  Not only is it all organized, but it’s pretty too!

It is such a simple project that I enlisted my girls to help me too!  They loved taping and organizing everything with me.  To make your box organizers just use a thin cardboard box like a cereal box, tissue box etc.  You may need to save several sizes of boxes and see which ones work best for your space or wooden tray.  I found our wooden tray at Walmart and it worked great.  The next step is to wrap the boxes with the scrapbook paper.  I just wrapped ours up like a gift… except I covered the inside too.  You will need two or three 12 inch square scrapbook paper pieces to cover your boxes depending on the size of them.  Secure the paper with Scotch® Magic™ Tape for the best results.

I also love how the wooden tray has handles so we can cart it around wherever we need it to go!

Now that we have it all organized I feel much better prepared for the school year ahead!  I love the little compartment with thePost-it® Note supplies, don’t you?  How you like organize your school supplies?
