This link is to a teachers blog where is talks about binders and un-cluttering her classroom. She took all or her teaching resources that were once in bulky mismatched binders and bound them all with book binders (then organizing them in drawers.) This is a great idea that keeps everything looking crisp, new and ensuring it all matches!
