So, I am doing the Clutter Free Classroom Project and we are in week #2. I took my pictures... you can check them out here if you really want too... Now, I have to decide what my plan of action is going to be to get rid of the "clutter". I definitely have my problem areas that I want to tackle (the drawers that are just full of "stuff" is probably #1 on my list) but I also have a problem- maybe you can give me some advice???? Please... I'm begging you???
I have TONS of books. Right now, I teach Title I reading/math. I have been doing that for the past 9 years. I do not need all of these books because they just don't "fit" in with what I am doing right now. However, I don't know what the future will hold. I don't know if I will someday end up back with my own classroom... so, I don't want to get rid of my several cupboards full of books because I may need them (not to mention I have bought most of them with my own money).
So, here is my thought process...
*I have lots of books that I don't use.
* I may need them someday if I were to teach in the regular classroom again.
* I have the space to keep them at school- I'm not in need of extra room.
*My husband would probably have a fit if I brought them home.
So here is my question to you- what would you do?? Keep them? Give them away? I would love to know what you think. Here are some pictures...
First, I need to go through a few drawers of wonderful products that I have downloaded off of TpT. I need to decide what I really want to keep and will use and what I don't think I will use. I do have a plan of how I want to store them ( I will talk about that in a later post). I have found something that works for me, it just takes time to get it organized.
Second, I REALLY need to decide what to do with all of these books that I am not currently using.
