Default How Do You Store Your Curriculum Materials?

I have recently started using the funshine express curriculum and already my office is over run with books, boxes and materials!

I would like to keep all the teacher books etc so thati can use them again another year but a lot of the resources are too big for a file folder.

Any ideas how to clear the clutter?
Thanks

I just did this....

Bank boxes by seasons seem to work best for funshine. I add an extra child kit per order so I can keep them as templates. Grab the clearance kits whenever you can, too... they will keep you stocked for years. (ignore the file folders in the photo, just stack the stuff)

I bought a couple extra for Holidays and Birthday supplies.

I use file boxes too, but I use the clear totes made for files. I write on the end what themes are in the box and it's easy to find what I need when I'm planning.

ETA: I can hang legal size files in these or the standard letter size.

Thank you! Great tip to buy an extra kit too

I have an oak lateral file cabinet that looks like a piece of furniture in my family room. That way my files are hidden and and my family room doesn't look like an office or a daycare.

very similar to this one

I have a banker's box (kept in the garage) for each unit we do. I put all books, sensory materials, and a folder of coloring sheets/pictures of past art work, etc. inside each one.

That way I can pack up and unpack each unit rather quickly.
