How to organize leveled readers

So, I'll admit, I don't really use my leveled readers with our McGraw Hill series (like, maybe twice in 4 years...)

We're getting Story Town for next year, and I'll need to use them frequently.

My storage now is a three drawer plastic drawer set, but the readers are jammed in there.

There are 30 stories, 15 books for each story. I'm willing to purchase something (within reason) or ask my dad to make something (again--within reason) but I really have no thoughts...do I want to just keep them in a box until we're on that story, or do I want them all out, or???

I keep mine in these small plastic crates that I got at the Dollar Tree. They are rectangles and I can fit a lot of books in each crate standing up in the order they will be used or by level and the crates sit on my shelves. They are easy to see and grab quickly.

I have used Mc Macmillan McGraw Hill for last two years. Our leveled readers came in 3 different color crates(red,green,blue) depending on level. I just keep mine in there because they are already in order. At end of year, I have to clean them out because inevitably students are absent when books are collected and end up in their desks until cleanout.

Our McGraw Hill Treasures leveled readers came in nice containers. They are three long boxes that have sections for each week. I left mine in the original containers. They are HEAVY cardboard and colored to look like-----treasures!

plastic shoe boxes

We use trophies, and I have all of my leveled readers in clear, plastic shoe boxes that I got for $1.00 each. I have them arranged in a way so that all of the levels for each week are all together, with sheets of paper in between each story to tell them apart. It's really simple, but trying to explain it here's getting confusing. I can take a pic at school tomorrow if you'd like, let me know!

I guess it would help if I got the series correct! We're getting Story Town, not Treasures. We looked at the two, but then decided on Story Town. I love the Treasures boxes though!

I saw these from Lakeshore and was wondering how they'd work...

the problem is, I'd need 3, so they'd end up having 6 extra slots
