I got this bin a few years ago as a Hostess reward and it has really been a work horse for me. It’s sort of messing looking right now - but like I said, I’m ready to move into a second one! The Convertable Organizer is now available again as a Hostess Reward and even comes with free personalization. Don’t let that sound too intimidating - you can do this by placing just $200 in orders. Organize a closet or doing your Christmas shopping early or get a new summer purse and coordinating bags and wallet and you’ll be there. Message me if you need help doing this!
Moving on to what is in this bin. I use the side bins for my big dice, card sets, and other smaller items. That front pocket has ziplock bags full of my little dice (I bought a bunch of regular dice at the Dollar Tree in a Farkle game and use those for games with my music students) and also Ewako Erasers that I use for pawns.
Now for the games!
These are the plastic folders that I buy to organize. I find them at Dollar Tree and at Walmart for $1 each. The brand name is Jot. I know these seem like a cheap version, but they have held up in my music studio for 3 years now. There is a shorter version of the clear one that is nice for just card sets.
The left one is just a clear zipper pocket, but as you can see, it holds bigger things inside because it expands. The right folder is like a two pocket folder and the front has a ziplock pocket too.
I’ve also used 2 pocket folders, but I don’t like them as much. When I first started organizing my games, I put everything in a plain 2-pocket folder. The game fits in the pocket and then I put the cards in a ziplock bag and put it with the game in the pocket. This is a much cheaper version since you can get 2-pocket folders for $.10 around the back-to-school sales.
Overall, my goal is to get the name of the game, the level, and the goals of the game printed not eh front of it. I would also like to somehow coordinate the games with actual piano lessons, so all I have to do is look at a chart and go grab the game to go with it!
Ahh!! It will come at some point! How do you organize your music games? I know that I’m always looking for new ways to be more efficient.
