Cheap sequin & tissue paper square storage from the Dollar Tree

Hey Guys! A lot has changed since my last post. I am now teaching Pre-Kindergarten. I love it so much, but I am also working on getting my degree at the same time.  It has been a lot of work and I have had so scale things back a bit.  I am hoping to get into the routine of blogging regularly because I have a lot of classroom things that I want to share!

For today, I wanted to share this amazing idea I got from an  Instagram account called The Purple Alphabet. She has fantastic You Tube videos on what to buy at the Dollar Tree! I could (and have) literally watch for hours.  So as a preschool teacher I am always on the hunt for cheap yet quality craft supplies.  I was so excited when I found tissue paper squares at my local Dollar Tree a few months back. The come 1500 per pack and there is actually a variety of colors.

 And the sequins, Dollar Tree is great at coming out with variety packs of sequins in super pretty color combos. I recently found a fall colored pack that is so pretty!
So Dollar Tree sells these amazing little organizers for $1 in the hardware department! The tissue paper squares fit perfectly and they are great for sequins too! They do not  move around when the lid is shut and they stack nicely! I am obsessed!
So there you have it, cheap craft supplies and storage all for a grand total of $5.  I usually pick up new sequins and tissue paper squares whenever I am in the Dollar Tree and just fill my box as needed.  They are so functional, the sides are even curved so it is super easy to take the sequins out for litle learning hands!
Do you use these in your classroom? I would love to hear your ideas!
