I have this obsession with binders. It's probably because I really don't like filing, I like being able to just close a book and stick it on a shelf. My issue was that I had so many binders with different purposes, that it got a little overwhelming.
Now you probably already do this, and I was just late to the party, but this year for those binders that only had one purpose and weren't full, I decided to make flip binders. Flip as in one direction it goes one way...
(looks totally normal right?)
But inside it's actually upside down - the only thing upside down is the pocket, but it still holds material in it.
The "correct" side of the binder is flipped around - so I get 2 uses out of each binder that I use on a daily/weekly basis. No use wasting binders when I can fit 2 pieces of curriculum in it.
See - totally normal inside.
Here's another flip binder that I use a lot. ELA answer keys are going in one direction...
Math are on the other side. This way I don't have to always flip past the ELA to get to the Math, it's just a matter of flipping the binder.
Do you do this too? Am I just weird?
