I believe that I am an "organized hoarder". I want to collect everything that exists, but realize that it must all have a home. I bought these plastic drawers at Wal-Mart and put border in the front of them. I printed labels with the names of all the stories (these are listed as a freebie in my TpT store). I keep all materials for each week together. I also try to write the name of the story on every piece of of every station. That way if we find a card in someone's desk, it is easy to "take it back to its home".
I have containers for each of the five reading books. I sort other books that correlate with the theme into these tubs. This has made it very easy for me to quickly find the books I need.
I have binders for all five of the reading books. I use them to organize copy masters. I made the labels by cutting the covers of old workbooks.
