Toolbox for Stimulus Cards



Does anyone else have a huge collection of stimulus cards printed from TpT that just seem to pile up?  I seem to keep collecting them, but just don’t have a good place to store them!  (If you caught my Periscope a few weeks ago - @slpnataliesnyders - you got a sneak peek.)

After my success making over these plastic drawers, I decided to see if I could find a plastic toolbox drawer unit with drawers big enough to hold some of my cards.  (I have a couple of smaller ones that hold my office supplies, but the drawers aren’t big enough to hold cards.)  After some searching, I found this on Amazon:


I decided to spray paint it the same color I used for my larger drawers here.


I knew I would need an easy way to label these drawers to make sure my materials stayed organized.  While browsing at Target the other day, I came across this dry erase tape.



I immediately decided that I would find some good use for this tape, and went ahead and bought it.  When I got it home, I realized that if I cut it in half and fit it to the outside of these drawers, the tape would make perfect labels that I could change out easily!  As an added bonus, it somewhat hides the contents of the drawers from prying student eyes.



I added a label to each drawer, then started sorting my most used cards.  After I sorted different therapy targets into the different drawers, I wrote the targets on the labels with a black dry erase marker.  (Note: if you want to change the labels a few weeks or months down the road, it will take a bit of persuasion to get the dry erase marker to come off, but a Clorox wipe worked fine for me.)



I decided to store these near my therapy table, so I could quickly grab them as needed.  What do you think?
