LOTS of work jobs, now what?

I teamed up with Autism Classroom for her link up on everything Workbaskets! 
Workbasket Wednesday Linkup for Structured Work Systems and Independent Work Systems
When trying to organize all of my work jobs I've tried many different storage options and I finally found one that I love! 

1)  File Folders: I quickly found out that there were some activities that they wouldn't all fit and this filled up my filing cabinets very quickly and I HATE filing cabinets. I definitely did not want more of these in my classroom! 

2) Binders: I worked so hard on creating my lovely work jobs that I didn't want to put holes in them :( So this didn't last long! As well as the fact that again I have some larger items that wouldn't fit into a binder. If you decide to do a binder you could take a picture of your larger items so you remember next year.

3) Drawers: I had some long drawers in my classroom that I attempted to store my items in.  I was able to the majority of my larger objects into the drawers but when the days got crazy and as time went on I quickly lost track of where everything was and we would just throw a work job into any random drawer. So no organization, which drives me nuts!

4) Tubs: My Final solution was rubber made tubes. I didn't want them to be BIG and bulky so I went with some small boxes 16"X12". 

I was able to put my paper work jobs as well as my bigger work jobs such as: sorting containers and erasers, etc. I sorted my boxes into fall, winter, spring and year round work jobs. I also have a container for work job materials (extra containers, pom poms, beads, velcro, etc) which helps so I can easily make a new work job when I feel inspired or have time! You can store them anyway you'd like but this is how I did mine! 

Another tip that I have is to take pictures of work jobs that you might not use all the time such as: 

This way you remember them all for next year!
