I hate to lose things...especially when it costs me money!
Here's why I like this system for keeping track of library books:
* This particular bin is easy to find (Walmart). It's also very affordable (about $4.50 each).
* My little boy can easily see and access all of his new books. This was my greatest frustration with previously using a library bag, satchel, or backpack.
* The bin stores easily (it's designed to fit on a bookshelf), and is convenient for carrying around the house or library.
* Best of all...The window in the bin allows me to keep track of what we've checked out and when they're due back. I use index cards cut to 2"x3". I also keep extra cards behind the one I'm using. Works great for us!
Would this work for you? Do you have a different system? Please share!
