A teacher in my building hangs her bulletin
board edgings on hangers in her coat closet. She used clothes pins to attach
them to the hangers. This seems like a great idea to me since she can always
find them and they are straight and ready to use again. Also, they are not
taking up drawer space.

Several years ago one of the teachers from the
lower grades gave me a wonderful idea I've used ever since. I took pieces of
poster board, stapled or taped three of the four sides together. and slid my
bulletin board supplies inside the open side. I then label them according to the
months or subjects. Everything stays nice and straight. I have a large cabinet
in the back of my room that has shelves that can be moved. I moved the bottom
shelf up so these "envelopes" stand up inside the cabinet. When I'm
looking for something specific, I find the appropriate envelope with everything
kept nice and neat. The teacher who shared this idea said she kept her envelopes
at home until that specific month, then brought in the one she needed. She said
she slid hers behind some furniture in her basement. I hope this idea

My mentor teacher gave me the best solution
for bulletin board trim. If you have some of those strong people magnets you put
them on the inside of the doors of your cabinets and hang them from the magnets.
They hang straight do not get wrinkled and are very easy to find. If you don't
have these magnets get them they are invaluable - available from Calloway House
another invaluable catalog resource. I do this same thing for bulletin board
letters that I keep in envelopes labeled with the titles of the bulletin boards
used them for. Hope this helps.
