Show us your stuff Linky Party for "Summer Piles"

My classroom stock pile grows and grows the more time I spend in blogland and on Pinterest. It's not as bad as last years, but it still bothers me to no end.

This is our kitchen table. Needless to say we don't eat dinner here EVER! I only {try} and put my chart paper and classroom charts here. I don't like them laying on the floor because they get all wrinkled. BUT, inside of those chart paper packs are some beautifully crafted anchor charts that I can't wait to laminate.

This is the wall opposite my NEW Ikea desk. This is the part that really bothers me. It's just out in the open for everyone to see. The stuff on the floor is not my teaching stock pile. That would be the hubsters garage sale pile. {I'm making telling him politely that he needs to decrease his NASCAR stock pile."

Here is my beautiful new Ikea desk that has still managed to stay somewhat clean and organized.

And last and definitely the WORST! It's the worst because it's not a "Summer Stock Pile" it's a "Forever Stock Pile".
Are You Sure!?
This is the first time I have ever exposed my teaching room! Which I might add, I never go in here because it is a disaster. You would think I'm a hoarder or something.
Here it is...

I'm not even sure what is in here other than a large pile of books. I should really go through that pile and take them to school.
This has actually been very therapeutic. Now that I have shown the world my stock pile maybe I should organize it.
Make sure to link up and add your summer stock pile.


  1. The first step is admission. lol jk. I love how the Cat in the Hat is perched on top there!!! I'm out of room in my vehicle to take all this stuff home my mom is giving me for my new classroom. :)

    1. I had to read your comment to the hubster. It seriously made me laugh. :)

  2. Kelli:

    I am so impressed!
    First, that you joined up to share (mine is worse, by the way).
    And second, that I can see the obvious organization within your piles.
    I bet you know exactly where to find things!
    I love your Ikea desk... and you deserve kudos for its clutter-free surface!

  5. Just look at as hunting for treasure..oh the things you will find. Once I found a $25 gift card to Target from a few years back! Good luck organizing! Try and take a peek at my piles as well.


  6. Love your Ikea desk and your green wall color! It's so easy for the piles to get out of control. That is how mine looks too.

  7. Your stuff makes my stuff look like a whole heap of mess!!! I can see that you are pretty organized even in your summer days! The piles of books however… I can totally relate. (:

  8. Oh my gosh, you made me feel a little bit better about my piles. But not much because mine are even worse and messier. You have cute stuff!

  9. I love your new Ikea desk!

    At least your room is organized chaos. Mine isn't even in a room. Just the living room floor.


  10. Taking the pictures of my piles made me realize I really need to get moving on the organizing! Under some of my school piles there are actually home piles that I don't even think I know what is in there! It was a goal this summer, but I don't even know where the time has gone! Good luck organizing!
