    Where can I find an affordable paper organizer? I found this one on Target for $120....

    http://www.target.com/gp/detail.htm...-4406200?ie=UTF8&frombrowse=1&asin=B000FCRO8O

    I'm looking for one that has at least 25 slots. I've seen the cheap ones made out of cardboard on reallygoodstuff.com.

    Are there any other suggestions? I should just make one since it would probably be cheap! But I wouldn't know where to start!

    I would like to use it to store construction paper, maybe have the students store their completed work, etc....

    Thank you!

    Don't buy the cardboard one from Really Good Stuff! Biggest waste of money ever. It was a pain to put together and right now, seven months into the school year, it's a mess. I'll be surprised it if lasts the whole year. Maybe their new ones are sturdier.

    I got a couple of these from Sam's Club. They're pretty cheap and have held up well. The only downside is the little black pieces on the front fall off so I would suggest a little glue to keep them in place. I use them for my kids mailboxes, and the piece that turns them into letter size falls down when the kids stick their hands in really far, but it really hasn't been much of a problem. I think they're a good buy for $10.

    Mine has only 24 slots and I got it for a good price at Staples. I'm pretty sure they had others that held more.

    I searched all over last summer for a sturdy card board one... I got 8 slot cardboard ones at office depot for $15 and I thought that I would need to get 3 of them for all my students' mailboxes, but right before the year started I found 18 slots and up ( I think) at office max. They held up really well. I now use the 8 slots for my own papers (construction paper, homework forms, communication forms etc.) and the larger one I use for the students mailboxes.
