Tried It Tuesday: Good-Bye Scraps of Paper

Linking up with the sweetest Holly from Fourth Grade Flipper for her Tried It Tuesday! I'm going to share something short and sweet that I hope you appreciate and will find useful!

Wait for it.....

Ta-Da! Eliminate scrap notes, to do lists, post-its (even though I treasure them!) from your desk! I made these signs, laminated them, and hot glued them to my wall. I wrapped a dry erase marker with some velcro and stuck it to the wall too! I post the things I need to copy, to do, and reminders and cross them off as I complete them. I even have my students add stuff for me! I actually got this idea while frequenting my favorite office supply store, Office Depot! In their print department they had a list on the wall of paper/cardstock, etc. to order, and of course, this got my wheels turning, so I made these for my classroom! I told you it was short and simple, but I have loved this new addition to my classroom this year! Do you like it??!!

Go check out other ideas at Holly's Linky Party!


  1. Yes! I definitely loooove this idea! I get so tired of drowning in papers and I still don't do what I'm supposed to...it's probably lost on the desk somewhere! Great and simple idea!

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. Just a tip for your tip... vis a vie erase a lot easier and don't leave residue as much as dry erase :)

  5. Great idea! I lose my post-it's anyway. I can't lose these if they are glued to the wall! Hehe!!

  7. Great idea! I cannot stand all the papers either. I have to put everything in the notes or calendar apps on my phone. Thank you for sharing!

  8. Awesome idea! I keep a post it on my desk with a "to do" list and end up taping down the flap that is not sticky because that little bit of clutter drives me nuts. This is so much neater and I don't have to tape down a post-it:) Okay, I think I sound a little craaazzyyy:) haha!
