Paper

How do you store paper? I'm thinking printer paper, handwriting paper and construction paper. I stood there this morning trying to figure out the best way to configure it so everything is flat and easy to get to, and I'm just not seeing it. So I'm looking for your terrific ideas!

Stackable "in trays"

I use just standard paper trays that stack for white-lined, yellow paper, and computer paper, and the kids access it when they need to . For large poster paper and construction paper I just stack it flat in the closet; I distribute that.

Drawers

I use the plastic drawer systems for my lined paper, printer paper and special paper. For my construction paper, I have that in my closet sorted by color and laid flat. I have a file folder in my drawer for scraps of laminated construction paper and scraps of construction paper. Good luck!

Once I saw on pinterest someone stored all their paper, including construction paper in a drawer in a file organizer. It looked so convenient and easy to keep tidy. If you have an extra drawer than you could use it for that and the students could access it easily as well.

Paper Storage

I use a ton of colored printer paper. I bought one of those mailbox "cubbies". Each color gets it's own cubbie. It has worked great! The paper is easy to access, it's stored flat, and it looks nice. (Being the OCD teacher that I am, I arrange it in order based on Roy G. Biv!)

I have one of those rolling cart things and some mailbox cubbies. Just didn't think of using those. Thanks for the suggestions! Now I gotta think where they'll work best...

I use a plastic file bin the size of a paper box and hanging file folders. I keep the bin on top of my file cabinet and move it to wherever. This picture is from Pinterest:

Oooh, the hanging file is a good idea too. Especially for colored papers that I wouldn't use often. Thank you all very much! I worked for a bit this morning trying to figure out a way to get the most-used papers (handwriting, copier) into my big storage cabinet, and they do fit, but not well. I think I'll experiment with some of these tomorrow. I want things easier to reach, for me and for my TA.

Remember that regular construction paper needs to be protected from light or it will fade.
I use these stacked plastic drawers, too. Makes it easy for kids to get what they need. My 3 drawers hold writing paper, story paper and scrap paper.

One year I finally broke down and bought one of these:

Mine wasn't as expensive as the one listed here, but it was the identical product. I think it was around $100. I liked it because it could hold the larger construction paper. I had it in my art center.

For writing paper I bought some plastic drawers similar to this:
